Real Madrid are willing to sell Sergio Ramos to Manchester United - but only for a fee of €90 million. 

The Spanish defender is said to be seeking an exit from the Bernabeu and wants to move to Old Trafford. Ramos has two years left on his contract in Spain and is said to be angry that he hasn't been offered new terms.

Spanish outlet Cadena SER claim that not only are Real Madrid holding out for a €90 million fee, they aren't willing to match Manchester United's contract offer which is worth €55 million.

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is keen on adding some top level experience to his back line and has identified Ramos as the man for the job. Real Madrid are seemingly reluctant to let him go but aren't totally against the idea if the right bid comes in.

So far Van Gaal is believed to have lodged one offer worth just under £30 million - well short of Madrid's valuation.

A complication for Manchester United is Real Madrid's interest in goalkeeper David de Gea. The Spanish international has one year left on his current contract and has already rejected an extension worth £200,000-per-week - a record for a goalkeeper. 

Demands

The Red Devils are believed to be demanding a £33 million transfer fee for De Gea, which would make him the most expensive shotstopper in the history of the sport - however reports in Spain claim this morning that the Premier League club have lowered their sights somewhat.

Newspaper El Mundo Deportivo say that they will do a deal for €35 million, around £28 million, although that is still more than Madrid are willing to offer. Their first and only bid to date so far was reportedly around £18 million, which was rejected out of hand by the powers that be at Old Trafford.

Opinion

The rumours about De Gea and Ramos have just got totally out of hand now; there's so many stories appearing each day it's hard to know exactly what's going on.

Of course both clubs are leaking to the press in order to get the upper hand and persuade fans one way or the other. All we do know for sure is that De Gea hasn't signed a contract at Old Trafford and that Ramos is two years away from being out of contract at Madrid. The rest is just guesswork, speculation or downright lies.

Do you think Sergio Ramos is playing games to get a better contract at Real Madrid?
