The Old Trafford themselves have likewise been linked with a number of Real Madrid players such as Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and more recently Sergio Ramos
In the case of Ramos there seems to be movement with reports in Spain suggesting that United are about to make their second and last bid for the defender with a Â€60million offer, a 15 million euro increase on their opening bid
This would make Ramos the most expensive defender in history, surpassing the Â€50million mark of David Luiz.
The 29-year-old defender who joined Real in 2005 from Sevilla is understood to be unhappy that his loyal service over the years has not been rewarded with a bells and whistles new contract
The defender has instructed Real to listen to offers after UnitedÂ’s original offer was considered derisory.Â“For less than Â€90 million we won't talkÂ” was the short response from the Bernabeu.
Ramos remains firm in his desire to end his time at Real with Manchester United looking the likely destination after Perez refused to meet the players salary demands and with United supposedly offering Â€55million over five seasons
Real are hoping that Ramos lowers his salary demands but the coming days will test everyone's resolve.
