Sergio Ramos is apparently ready to leave Real Madrid this summer after becoming unhappy at suggestions that he has been offered to rivals Barcelona, according to reports.
The rumours have damaged the standing that the Spanish international, 29, had with supporters of Real and he has been further angered after the club failed to deny a link.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Ramos now finds himself on the radar of bitter Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City, as well as at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Spain star has two years left on his current contract at the Santiago Bernabeu and although he has a €200m (£143m) buy-out clause, he is keen to renegotiate that and leave now, rather than wait until 2017.
Ramos, who has been at the club since 2005 joining from fellow La Liga side Sevilla, has gone on to make close to 450 appearances over the course of his ten years in the Spanish capital, and has won three La Liga titles and the Champions League in the meantime.

It's said he wants to leave on his own terms - rather than be pushed out the door like former Real players such as Mesut Ozil and Angel Di María. Long-serving goalkeeper Iker Casillas could be facing a similar fate.
Regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, Ramos has also had a stellar international career playing more than 100 games for the Spanish national team and being a key part of the European Championship and World Cup 2010 victories.
