Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has given his biggest hint yet that he could be on the move to the Premier League, according to the Daily Star.
The Spanish international, who has been a key member of Carlo Ancelotti's side in recent time, has been linked with a move to England's elite division of late, and it now appears that he could be interested in a transfer in the near future.
In fact, the same report has suggested that Ramos' latest hint could be a come and get me plea to the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City as he goes in search of departing La Liga.
Ramos clearly isn't happy with the standard of referring in Spain and has admitted that he now prefers the Premier League. And, after giving away a penalty in his side's 2-0 defeat at the hands of Atletico, the 28-year-old has hit out at officials.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, the centre-back said: “The only thing I will say is that with every passing day I prefer the English Premier League.

“What am I talking about? Obviously not the ball-boys...the style of play, the refereeing.
“People enjoy watching that competition. When you lose it’s easy to focus on the refereeing decisions.”
It remains to be seen, however, as to whether any of the Premier League's elite clubs will make a move for his services anytime soon.
Who needs him?
There's no doubt about it, a number of England's top clubs could do with him as they go in search of success.
Manchester United, who have struggled at the back under the guidance of Louis van Gaal this season, could do with adding experience to their back-line, with the likes of Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans failing to prove their credentials at Old Trafford.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are also in need of defensive recruitment after selling club captain Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona this past summer. The Gunners have looked extremely vulnerable at the back throughout the course of the campaign, and Ramos would no doubt improve them.
Chelsea and Manchester City, on the other hand, already have a number of top defenders at their club, but would only improve further if they secured Ramos' services.
