Reports claim Ramos is yet to agree terms on a new deal and other clubs are interested.
Grand Hotel Calciomercato per Football365 have named United as potential suitors for the 34-year-old.
Madrid are aware of the value Ramos brings to their team, but are reluctant to extend his contract until 2024.
The World Cup winner is also refusing to budge on his current wage packet of £13.4 million a year.
It isn't the first time Ramos has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital, or the first time he's been linked with United.
Van Gaal told FourFourTwo back in August: "For the defence, I wanted Sergio Ramos and Mats Hummels, because ours wasn't the strongest in building from the back."
The Red Devils currently play Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof as their main central defence partnership.
Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe have struggled with injury while Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo look to have no future at the club.
Ramos played the full 90 minutes in Madrid's latest game, a 0-0 draw with Osasuna.
The La Liga clash went ahead despite Storm Filomena battering Spain.
"We did what we could do on the field but it was not a football match," 'Los Blancos' boss Zinedine Zidane vented per Goal. "The conditions were very difficult.
"Yes, clearly the match against Osasuna should have been postponed.
"That is clear. The conditions to play football were not met, which in the end is what everyone wants. As much for us as our opponents."
He was then asked about the Spanish FA's decision to press on with the game, to which he replied: "I'm not going to get into these things. We have done what they have told us, we have played and that's it.
"We have to think about recovering even if we don't know if we are going to go to Madrid tomorrow, if we are going to return on Monday. And on Wednesday we have another game."
