Liverpool Reportedly Interested In Sergio Ramos Despite Mo Salah Controversy
The January transfer window is home to some zany rumours, but we may be peaking early this year.
The Reds may be on the lookout for a new centre-back this month after injuries to Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez that have left their title defence in the lurch.
Manchester United are on equal points with their fierce rivals, and have a game in hand. The match between the two this month is hotly anticipated, with Manchester City waiting in the wings should either of them slip up.
However, whether this would make Jurgen Klopp desperate enough to bring 34-year-old Ramos to Anfield on what would likely have to be a huge contract is unknown - but also unlikely.

It is especially unlikely thanks to Ramos' history with the Reds. He is perhaps best known to the Anfield faithful for injuring Mohamed Salah in the 2018 Champions League final. Salah had to leave the field injured and Real Madrid went on to lift the trophy.
Ramos and Salah never made up after the incident, and there continues to be bad blood between the player and Liverpool supporters in the years since.
However, this didn't stop journalist Cristóbal Soria from making the huge claim on Spanish TV, and if the transfer were to happen it would certainly be a big boost for Liverpool's title chances.
Despite that, we just can't see it happening, can you? It could be slightly more likely, with Ramos' Bernabeu contract ending in the summer, that this is all part of negotiations with club president Florentino Perez.
