Manchester United have shown a genuine interest in Sergio Ramos throughout the last few days, with Louis van Gaal keen to bolster his defensive options ahead of the clubs return to the Champions League this season.
According to Cope, United have offered Real Madrid a staggering amount of money, totalling €75million [including David de Gea] for the transfer of the 29-year old defender.
These latest reports coming out of Spain seem totally unrealistic, but if true it does show that Manchester United certainly mean business this summer.
At the end of the day, Ramos is one of the best defenders in the world, but with just two years left on his contract, and David de Gea being used as a makeweight in the deal, €75million seems way too much to pay for the Spain international.
Cope go on to say that United have offered Sergio Ramos a five-year contract, meaning he would be at the club until he is at least 34 if he signs.
Is Ramos worth this absurd amount of money? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
