Manchester United are interested in Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos, according to claims from Spain.

The 34-year-old’s current deal runs down in the summer and Sport explain Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez is aware of the defender’s desire to earn the last big contract of his career.

Pérez, however, ‘neither can nor wants to’ meet the centre-back’s €12m salary demands, mainly due to the club’s poor economic conditions.

Ramos earlier stated he will play for free, but those at Santiago Bernabéu think otherwise and they feel his ‘decision is a matter solely and exclusively of money’.

He’s represented by his brother, René, who had managed to filter interest from elsewhere and used it to put pressure on Zinedine Zidane’s side to get a new deal. That hasn’t helped and the agent, for now, isn’t giving away anything on his client’s future plans.

It’s claimed Ramos cannot just end up at any club and if he decides to leave Real Madrid, he wants to join a side that will offer him a two or three-year deal worth €12m per season.

This is when Manchester United get a mention along with two other suitors, since the Red Devils are one of the few clubs who can afford to meet the player’s salary demands.

Sport state, ‘everything points to PSG, City or Manchester United, the three teams that have shown some interest’ to acquire his services.

Whether this is again agent games remains to be seen.
