Manchester United and Manchester City are reportedly among the clubs looking to land Sergio Ramos on a free transfer this summer.
Real Madrid announced on Wednesday night their long-serving captain will depart the Bernabeu this month after 16 years in the Spanish capital.
Talks over a fresh deal with Real hit an impasse long ago with Sergio set to become one of the most high-profile free agents of the summer transfer market.
Marca, Sport, Mundo Deportivo and As all report there are four potential destinations for Ramos – two of those from England.
AS report Ramos’ agents have been in direct contact with the Citizens for some time.
Aymeric Laporte remains linked with a transfer away from the Etihad Stadium with Eric Garcia joining Barcelona this summer. The report suggesting Sergio could be ideal options to bolster Pep Guardiola’s variants at the back.
However, the reports also say United are in the running with a transfer to Old Trafford one that has always interested the centre-back.
United were in touch with Ramos over a move back in 2015 during a previous contract stand-off with Los Blancos, with the Spain international eventually agreeing a new deal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is interested in bringing in a partner for Harry Maguire at the back ahead of next term with the club also keen on Ramos’ long-time defensive partner Raphael Varane.
