Sergio Ramos’ girlfriend would follow him to Manchester United

Pilar Rubio, the girlfriend of Sergio Ramos, has told reporters that she would follow her partner to England if Real Madrid sell their soon-to-be-appointed captain to Manchester United this summer.

Rubio also confirmed that herself and Ramos enjoy learning English together - and have done for years - but was unable to comment on rumours linking her boyfriend with a big-money move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are reportedly keen to sign the Spanish World Cup winner, who wanted to leave the Bernabeu earlier this summer, but Real Madrid have no plans to let the 29-year-old move to the Red Devils even if it means they won’t be able to sign David de Gea until next summer.

When asked by El Mundo if she would follow Ramos to Manchester, Rubio replied: "For us the most important thing is being together.

“We are a very close family and we always rely on our professional decisions, and so it will remain. And if I move away, he will come with me. The important thing is to be together, we do not care where."

Ramos is learning English

However, when asked whether Ramos will join Manchester United, she responded: “I will not talk about it. Although I know you have to ask, forgive me, I can not [comment] on that.”

On the subject of English, Rubio commented: "He's been learning with me for years. Sometimes together and sometimes separated. At home we try to put movies on in English."

Bid made, contract offered

Spanish newspaper AS reported earlier this week that Manchester United had launched a €45 million bid for Ramos, who flew out to Melbourne for Real Madrid’s pre-season tour of Australia and China earlier this week.

Marca, another of Spain’s leading newspapers, had earlier reported that Manchester United made an even more lucrative contract offer to Ramos - a cool €11 million net per year deal.

However, it’s understood that Real Madrid are only prepared to listen to offers in the region of €90 million - or approximately £62 million, which would break the £59.7 million Manchester United paid the Spanish giants for Angel di Maria last summer.

Ramos is not worth huge money

At 29, Ramos is patently not worth breaking the British transfer record for, but for half that price he could be a shrewd acquisition by Louis van Gaal who wants to add some much-needed leadership to his back-line.

It will not be a disaster, however, if Manchester United miss out on the Spanish star.

Van Gaal is also keen on Valencia’s Nicolas Otamendi, although it now seems certain that Mats Hummels will stay with Borussia Dortmund.

If United fail to sign a new centre-back, they still have Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair. Jonny Evans is also still at the club, although the Northern Irish defender is expected to leave Old Trafford later this summer.
