Sergio Ramos to finally sign new deal at Real Madrid

Published Add your comment

Sergio Ramos is finally set to put to bed any speculation of a move to Manchester United, by signing a new contract at Real Madrid.

Louis van Gaal still held minor hope that his side could secure a deal for the Real captain, despite it being announced, some weeks ago, Ramos would sign a new long-term deal at the Spanish giants.

As of yet, no contract has been signed, and the Old Trafford club believed they could prize the 29-year-old away from the Bernabeu.

However, the Independent are now reporting that Real Madrid's in-house television channel are making preparations for the announcements of a new contact.

The deal will see Ramos pocket an annual salary of £7.1 million, a fee he has been demanding since contract talks opened with Florentino Perez.

Van Gaal has hinted that he may sign a central defender before the end of the transfer window and rumours surrounding the future of Nicolas Otamendi have begun to gather pace once again.

Daley Blind blind partnered Chris Smalling at the heart of United's defence during the 1-0 win against Tottenham, while Smalling put in a solid display there are doubts over the ability of Blind to occupy the role effectively.

The versatile Dutch player is a strong centre midfielder and arguably an even better left-back, but his lack of physical presence leaves question marks over his ability to play in the centre of defence.

When Marcos Rojo returns to fitness it is likely he will partner Chris Smalling at the back, but with Phil Jones out for three weeks and Jonny Evans surplus to requirements, United look short of numbers at the back. 

There is no question United need a central defender, but who that man will be remains to be seen.
