Man Utd told to break the bank to sign Real Madrid defender

Former Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has claimed that Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos would be a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Spanish defenders existing contract at Santiago Bernabeu is set to expire next June, and a recent report suggested that Real Madrid had still not offered the 34-year-old a new deal.

The Red Devils are allegedly interested in securing the services of the Spain international, and Berbatov is confident that Ramos would easily become key player for the Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Sergio Ramos – according to reports both the player and club are yet to come to an agreement on a new contract. With Ramos 34 years old, they are probably fighting over a one-year or two-year contract,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“Thiago Silva, who is even older at 36 years old, has proven that it is never too late to move to the Premier League and so far it is working out well for the Brazilian.

“I’m sure if Ramos wanted to move to a club like United then it would work out well for him too. He’s in great shape, he’s still a world-class defender and in my opinion there’s still a lot of football left in him.

“I see him as a Real Madrid player, however, and I think player and club will find a solution and he will stay. I’ll be surprised if he leaves, but if things don’t work out then I’m sure a lot of clubs will be interested in him.”
