Sergio Ramos 'rejected Man Utd' to rejoin Sevilla as 'desperate' offer from Ten Hag revealed

Sergio Ramos rejected a move to Manchester United before sealing a return to Sevilla, according to reports.

The former Real Madrid defender, 37, left Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season after a tricky two years with the Ligue 1 side.

Over the summer, he received a number of offers including a reported £17.1million-a-year proposal from Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad.

However, he opted to join boyhood club Sevilla instead, having graduated through their academy 20 years ago.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are said to have tabled a bid that was immediately rejected by the Spaniard, following the news that first-choice centre-back Raphael Varane would miss a few weeks through injury.

That's according to The Sun, who claim that the Red Devils "made a late play to sign Ramos as the transfer window prepared to shut".

Although United were reportedly "slow to detail the terms of the offer" - before they eventually offered a £73,000-a-week contract, which the World Cup winner promptly turned down.

The report adds that United were left "upset" that Ramos rejected the move so quickly.

As a result, Ten Hag drafted in Jonny Evans on transfer deadline day on a one-year deal, after the 35-year-old signed a pre-season contract at Old Trafford over the summer.

Upon joining the club, Evans told Manchester United's website: Jonny Evans said:“I am delighted to join Manchester United, a place which has always felt like home.

“This club and the fans have shaped me as a player and as a person since I was 15 years old, and I am delighted to be back where it all began as part of this talented squad.

“I’ve really enjoyed working under the manager and his coaching staff since the start of pre-season, and I’m looking forward to helping this group achieve success together at this fantastic football club.”
