Real Madrid name their price for Sergio Ramos

Published 7 Comments

Real Madrid have named their price for Manchester United target Sergio Ramos - and it's an eye watering £65m.

The Daily Mail reports that Real Madrid will hold out for £65m after the Spanish giants reportedly turned down United's opening offer of £35m.

The Spain international has been involved in a dispute over his contract with Madrid officials, and it doesn't seem any closer to resolving itself.

With Real Madrid keen to sign Manchester United's David De Gea, it seems United have cannily tied any transfer of De Gea to a potential move of their own for Sergio Ramos.

Reports claim Madrid are increasingly concerned that Ramos, 29, has had his head turned by Manchester United and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is believed to have personally reached out to the Spain international to reassure him over plans to extend his contract.

But Spanish newspapers claim that Ramos has indeed asked Madrid officials to listen to any offers for him after becoming disgruntled with a lack of progress over contract talks.

Of course, it remains the possibility that Ramos is simply using Manchester United's interest as leverage in negotiations over a new deal with Real Madrid.

But Manchester United do have one thing in their favour - Rafa Benitez wants things sorted by July 11, the date the Spanish club flies off on its world tour.

As a result, their desperation to land De Gea could work to United's advantage if Ed Woodward and co play it right. It's certainly one to watch.

What do you think Manchester United fans - would you be happy to pay £65m for Ramos?
