Manchester United legend Gary Neville trolled a Liverpool supporter last night after the fan mocked the Red Devils for targeting Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. 

Neville initially took to social media to insist that 'reports' linking Manchester United with a £40 million swoop including goalkeeper David de Gea for the services of Ramos couldn't be true. 

Ramos, of course, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent days, with the player seemingly unhappy at the Bernabeu.

And with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal looking to improve his club's back-line ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, it's not entirely surprising that he's looking to land Ramos, who has enjoyed a remarkable career on the domestic and European scene. 

One supporter of Liverpool, however, clearly doesn't think signing Ramos will improve United at the back, but Neville responded in style, as he asked the fan if United could borrow some of Liverpool's defenders ahead of the new season...

Neville troll 

Neville's initial tweet read: These reports saying 40m plus DDG for Ramos?? Please no! Nothing v Ramos but it can't be right..

The Liverpool fan then responded by saying: He's s*** and he won't solve much problems in your defense.

Neville, though, had the last laugh, as he tweeted: Can you lend us some of your defenders?That will sort it!!!!!!

Both sides in need

Well, let's be honest, both Manchester United and Liverpool are in need of improvement at the back if they're going to kick on next term. 

In fact, Liverpool could probably do with targeting Ramos themselves after their recent struggles in the defensive department. Brendan Rodgers' side arguably improved at the back last term, but incredibly they still conceded 11 goals more than Manchester United, who faced criticism all season long. 

In truth, Liverpool's disastrous final day 6-1 defeat to Stoke City didn't exactly help their record, but they will surely be on the lookout for recruits at the back over the corse of the summer. 

Manchester United, on the other hand, has one of the best defensive records in the division - conceding only five more than Premier League champions Chelsea, who had the meanest back-line in 2014/15. 

The potential signing of Ramos, then, may actually be no laughing matter, as he may well prove the experienced defensive star the Red Devils are in need of. The Spanish international may well have his faults, but he'd most certainly bring an added steel to the Manchester United defence.
