Man Utd given clear path to sign Sergio Ramos as PSG ‘pull out of transfer over £200k-a-week wage demands’

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly been given a clear path to sign Sergio Ramos after Paris Saint-Germain dropped out of the race.

RMC claims Mauricio Pochettino is keen on signing the former Real Madrid captain, whose shock Bernabeu departure was confirmed this week.

However, Ramos is demanding a two-year contract on wages worth £200,000-a-week.

And PSG are refusing to enter talks unless Ramos, 35, has a change of heart and drops his demands.

That means United could now be frontrunners for the veteran defender after he also refused to entertain an offer from former side Sevilla.

Ramos is seen as an ideal partner for Red Devils captain Harry Maguire.

And United have shown in the past they are not afraid of handing out large contracts for the right player.

Ramos played 671 times for Real after a £23million move from Sevilla in 2005, scoring an incredible 101 goals during a 16-year spell.

He led Real to numerous trophies, including five LaLiga titles, four Champions Leagues and two Copa del Reys.

Ramos is also the most capped player in Spain’s history despite missing out on their Euros squad, representing his country 180 times.

New Real boss Carlo Ancelotti was eager for Ramos to stay.

But Los Blancos were only giving a one-year contract on reduced pay, and Ramos claims he even missed a deadline to respond to the offer.

However, Real have already landed a potential replacement in Austria captain David Alaba, who will join on a free transfer after his Bayern Munich contract expired.
