Manchester United Won't Even Bother Trying To Sign Sergio Ramos Because Of Previous Incident

It was confirmed this week that Sergio Ramos will leave Real Madrid after 16 trophy-laden years at the Bernabeu - and it's a decision that will no doubt peak the interest of some of Europe's elite.

So far, Manchester City, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain have already been linked with a move for the influential centre-back in recent months, with Chelsea, Sevilla and Inter Miami also rumoured to be interested in his signature.

Manchester United are another huge name who continue to be involved in speculation surrounding Ramos' future, but it appears the Premier League side will not be in the running to offer the 35-year-old defender a deal.

The Daily Mail report that United's hierarchy, including executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, are still unhappy with both Ramos and his brother Rene because of how they 'conducted themselves' during previous transfer talks.

Ramos almost joined the ranks at Old Trafford but eventually turned it down to remain at Los Blancos. In fact, he spoke about that offer in a 2015 interview with COPE.

"There was an offer from United," he said. "I considered changing for a while but Real Madrid was always my priority and there were no economic reasons.

"Did I feel cheated [by Madrid]? No, but I did feel disappointed for a while. There were some troubles that came to an end.

"Flattery from big clubs is always good as this is because you are doing well, but the fans and my club want me."

Despite being against a move for the Spaniard, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on bringing in a centre-back in the summer window, with Ramos' former teammate Raphael Varane a target.

The 28-year-old currently earns a reported £4.3m-a-year wages at Madrid, although Defensa Central claim that Los Blancos could increase it to £7.7m-a-year.
