Sergio Ramos move to Manchester United 'not possible'

Published 7 Comments

Spanish football expert Graham Hunter believes Manchester United's swoop for Sergio Ramos is destined to end in failure. 

The Real Madrid defender has already been the subject of one bid worth around £30 million from the Red Devils but so far the Spanish giants have refused to budge and won't let him leave.

Ramos' future could depend on David de Gea who has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu. The Manchester United goalkeeper has one year left on his contract and won't sign an extension, meaning he can walk away for nothing next year.

As it stands negotiations are at a standstill as both teams refuse to budge. Manchester United say that they will only let De Gea leave if Real Madrid offer Ramos in exchange - otherwise they are willing to let him walk for nothing next year.

Madrid meanwhile have made Ramos club captain after Iker Casillas' departure, and have so far ignored his pleas to leave and link up with Manchester United.

Speaking to TalkSPORT about the latest batch of rumours linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to Manchester United, Hunter also revealed details about Ramos' future, and claimed that while the defender wants to leave, a move might not be possible in the current window.

No deal

"Ramos’ attitude remains the same. He is unhappy, he has made that clear, and he has made his decision [to go]," the journalist said.

"It is not him bullying Madrid into a better contract. If he gets his way, he will go to United. But the deal is, there is two years left on his contract and it may not be able to happen. Real may refuse to sell him."


Ramos has two years left on his contract with Real Madrid, and although Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal claimed that deal for the defender was a 'possibility', new Los Blancos manager Rafa Benitez insisted yesterday that isn't the case.

"I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal, but Sergio will be staying with us," the Spaniard said. "He is our player, our captain. I would like to see him at the beginning of the season, because he's a key player for us."

Will Sergio Ramos be a Manchester United player by the end of the transfer window?
