Manchester United have been handed a boost in their pursuit for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. Reports coming out of Spain are suggesting that the Spanish defender is still interested in joining Manchester United despite claims that Ramos had renewed his contract with the club. The central defender is reported to be angry at reports that are saying he has renewed his contract with the club and believes Real Madrid are using those reports to force him into signing a contract renewal with the club.
Louis Van Gaal who has made the signing of Sergio Ramos a top priority was looking to use Real Madrid’s interest in David De Gea to seal a swap deal between the two clubs but Madrid rejected the deal. However with Sergio Ramos still keen on joining Manchester United, Real Madrid will have no choice but to accept the swap deal.
A lot of United fans will be extremely disappointed that both players cannot play together at Manchester United. For one player to be at Manchester United the other has to be at Real Madrid. However both players importance to Manchester United cannot be stressed enough.
David De Gea superb saves and performances might have saved United the embarrassment of finishing outside the top 4 for the second successive season while Sergio Ramos experience and leadership qualities are extremely required in United’s defence. The stability and organization lacked in United’s defence last season can be solved by a player like Sergio Ramos. Unfortunately there is no other defender like Sergio Ramos available in the market right now which leaves United with a very difficult choice to make. To stick with David De Gea who singlehandedly carried United at his back last season or to go for Sergio Ramos and solve our defensive problems once and for all.
