At least one of these two men is heading to Old Trafford this year. Can Man United go 2-for-2 and land Ronaldo as well as Ramos?
Despite recent reports that there were no talks regarding Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and Manchester United, the Red Devils have reportedly reached a deal with the La Liga outfit for his signature.
According to the Metro, recent reports from the Spanish newspaper AS have revealed that Ramos has agreed to terms of a five-year deal with Man United worth £39 million (around £150,000-a-week). The move comes just hours after one of Ramos’s international teammates said a deal between Real Madrid and Man United was “unlikely” and shortly follows a bizarre interview Cristiano Ronaldo gave in which he stormed out after stating he “doesn’t know” about Ramos’s status with the club.
The 10-year Real Madrid veteran Ramos was named La Liga Best Defender in three straight years (2012-2014) and is a four-time member of the UEFA Team of the Year. Ramos has 40 goals in 314 League appearances and 10 international goals – including two game-winners against France and Sweden.
Ramos has stated his intense desire to join the Premier League and some suspect that his burning hatred for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is driving him to join one of the league’s top contenders.
Next on Man United’s wish list would undoubtedly be the sensational scoring king Cristiano Ronaldo, who is rumored to be up for sale.
