Report: Man United tracking Sergio Ramos contract saga at Real Madrid
Manchester United are keeping close tabs on Sergio Ramos' situation at Real Madrid, according to reports.
Widely regarded as one of the best center-backs in the world, Ramos has two years left on his Bernabeu deal, but talks over a new deal have not been forthcoming.
The 29-year-old is believed to be looking for an improved contract with Real worth around Â£10million a year and the Spanish giants are reluctant to bow to his wage demands.
According to the Daily Star Sunday the impasse has alerted Louis van Gaal, who is on the lookout for a world-class center-back, who would cost United in excess of £20million.
Ramos' agent and brother, Rene, earlier this week told Radio Marca: "For now, he still has two years of contract.
"We await the call of the club. Real has not called me.
"For now, there is no talks, there is no need to invent things.
"For now, he will not leave Real Madrid. He feels loved by Florentino and fans. There are also critics."
Asked about Ramos' future plans, Rene added: "It is still too young to think about retirement.
"That time will come and he will choose when to retire.
"Perhaps it is best if he doesn't finish at Real Madrid or [former club] Sevilla, but at another club. We never know.
"Football is changing so fast, you must enjoy the moment."
