Manchester United may attempt to lure Sergio Ramos away from the Bernabeu this summer in a deal that could be worth up to £20m.

As reported by The Telegraph, the Real Madrid star isn’t currently interested in entering contract negotiations with the club.

But with two years still left on his current deal, the Champions League semi-finalists might look to cash in while they still can.

The 29-year-old’s brother, Rene – who also serves as his agent – has revealed that there are currently no plans for contract talks to proceed.

He said: “For now he still has two years of contract. We await the call of the club but Real Madrid have not called me.

“For now there are no talks. Perhaps it is best if he doesn’t finish his career at Real Madrid but at another club. We never know.

“Football is changing so fast – you must enjoy the moment.”

United’s return to Europe’s premier football competition is likely to force Louis van Gaal into reinforcing his defensive ranks this summer.

At present, the Dutchman has a wide selection of centre backs to choose from – Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Paddy McNair, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Tyler Blackett – but Ramos’
European experience would make him a vital asset to the squad.

The World Cup winner could also link up with former teammate Angel di Maria, as well as compatriots Juan Mata, David de Gea and Ander Herrera.

If Van Gaal is to make United competitive on several fronts next season, and stake a serious title challenge, he needs to start making signings of this calibre.

Manchester United fans: Would you rather sign Mats Hummels or Sergio Ramos?
