Sergio Ramos could announce wish to leave Real Madrid

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos could publicly announce his desire to leave the Spanish giants this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that the Spanish international, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, has been advised to tell fans of the Bernabeu outfit that his problem is not with the club but with president Florentino Perez.

Ramos is reportedly unhappy in the Spanish capital because of the club's president, with the same report going on to claim that he's admittedly privately that he wants to depart the club. 

Seemingly, one of the player's biggest problems at the club is the saga involving his contract with the club. Currently, as claimed by the Mail, the defensive ace, who is set to run out of his current deal with the club in 2017, is earning £3.9m a season, with the same report claiming that the player believes he's worth almost double that figure. 

Ultimately, a huge pay increase would make him the club's third highest paid player, behind the superstar duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, who are two of the leading forwards in world football.

€60m deal possible 

It appears, then, that a move to Old Trafford may well take place in the summer transfer window, with the report claiming that Real would accept an offer in the region of €60m for the player's services despite his incredible €200m buyout clause.

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the Manchester United hierarchy step up their interest in the experienced centre-half, with David de Gea quite possibly heading in the opposite direction. 

Pay for the best 

Ultimately, there will be many Manchester United supporters questioning whether the club should splash the cash on Ramos in this transfer window, but perhaps he's worth every penny if the club really are intent on returning to the summit of the Premier League table. 

At 29-years of age, Ramos is one of the most experienced and established defenders in world football, so would make quite the coup for the Red Devils. 

At the end of the day, United need a world-class player to lead their back-line, and Ramos may well be that man. Of course, he won't come cheap, but the Manchester United hierarchy seem determined to build a brilliant side again, and they must start from the back.
