Man United beating Liverpool to land this world-class veteran would lead them back to the glory days – opinion

Manchester United opinion: Should the Red Devils sign Sergio Ramos?

According to a report from the Daily Star, Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool are set to battle it out for the signature of Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos in the summer.

The Spaniard has spent 14 years with the Galacticos but he is expected to leave at the end of the season, according to the report.

The report reveals that Ramos had a huge bust-up with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, which has cast a doubt over his future at the Spanish capital beyond the end of this season.

The report also brings to light that Liverpool and Manchester United have both contacted the Spaniard’s agent in recent days. Ramos has won everything as a professional footballer for both club and country, and a player of his quality will not be easy to attract for any club.

Former Galactico Cristiano Ronaldo is also keen on a reunion with his former teammate, while an unnamed Chinese club have also put their name in the hat, according to the report.

Liverpool’s interest in the Spaniard comes in as a huge shock especially after the Champions League final last season when Ramos was involved in a clash with Mo Salah, which ended the Egyptian’s final early.

The tackle did not go down well with the Liverpool fans and the fact that the Reds are interested in him is hugely surprising. However, Manchester United’s interest in him comes in as no surprise whatsoever.

The Red Devils have been in need of a new defender for quite some time now and the opportunity of signing a player Sergio Ramos’ calibre was obviously pounced upon by them.

Ramos could potentially be the player that Manchester United need at this moment. The Red Devils lack the confidence and belief in their squad and a leader like Ramos would change absolutely everything at Old Trafford.

The 33-year-old would bring in a winning mentality to the squad and his experience is sure to help out someone like Victor Lindelof to fulfil his potential.

Ramos would tighten up United’s defence next season and his ruthless nature of defending is sure to bring fear to any opponent charging at him next season.
