Sergio Ramos, whose future has been the major talking point this transfer window, stated that he has not negotiated with any club. But the Real Madrid star failed to deny that he won’t leave the club this summer.
He told Cuatro that “all is well” at Madrid, and said, “I’m not negotiating with anyone.”
The 29-year-old central defender has been heavily linked with a move to premier league giants Manchester United. According to most of the reports, Ramos made it clear about his final destination that it’s going to be Old Trafford only, after a dispute with club President Florentino Perez about his new contract. Ramos was also believed to be upset by the sacking of former boss Carlo Ancelotti, after he failed to deliver any major silverware last season.
Real Madrid fans initially opposed the idea of selling Ramos to any other club, but a recent poll, conducted by the Spanish newspaper AS, including 25,000 voters revealed that 55 percent of the Madrid fans want Ramos to leave the club.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has made his interest in the Spanish centre back clear, after launching a £28.3 million bid for Ramos. But the bid was firmly rejected by Madrid, who themselves are interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.
Recent reports have also claimed that Manchester United executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward has demanded Ramos from Real Madrid in exchange of De Gea, or forget about signing the goalkeeper until the end of next season.
If Van Gaal is able to sign Sergio Ramos from Madrid, it will be a big victory for the United boss over the Blancos, and will certainly be one of the biggest transfers of this summer.
