Sergio Ramos has told Real Madrid that he wants to quit the club and join Manchester United. The 29-year-old has told the Spanish club to listen to offers from Manchester United.
According to Sky Sports sources, Ramos has made it very clear that he wishes to leave the Bernabeu and join the club from Old Trafford. United have made a bid of €40 million for the player which is far from the evaluation of €65 million for the World Cup and Champions League winner Ramos.
Ramos now wishes to play in the Premier League and be a part of Louis van Gaal’s rebuilding process at Manchester United. The club are now back in the Champions League and Van Gaal sees Ramos as the perfect personality to guide Manchester United back to the glory days.
The player feels that he hasn’t been rewarded for his services to club and was deeply upset by the fact that his contract was allowed to run down in its final 2 years, something which doesn’t happen if the player is valued by the Real Madrid board.
Authorities at United believed the player might be using them to get a better deal elsewhere or at Real Madrid but the player’s agent and the player are serious about the move and are not using Manchester United.
Madrid manager Rafael Benitez is having second thoughts about taking the Old Trafford bound player to Australia for the pre-season tour starting July 11 and has told the board to allow the player to leave. The new manager does not want the player’s move to create any sort of distress within the club while on tour.
