Manchester United are demanding Sergio Ramos to be included in Real Madrid’s offer to sign David de Gea, the Guardian reports.
De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu the past season, as the La Liga giants plan to replace Iker Casillas with the current Spain number one.
But, the Red Devils are reluctant to lose their star goalkeeper on the cheap, already turning down an initial £13million bid from Real.
Despite this, the 10-time European champions are confident of striking a deal, and have held talks in order to negotiate a transfer fee.
However, United have replied that they will only let De Gea leave if Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos comes to Old Trafford.
The 29-year-old has failed to agree a contract extension with the club for some time, alerting the likes of Chelsea who are also keen on his signature.
Ramos still has two years left compared to De Gea’s one, which means Real still have time to sort out the matter.
The former Sevilla star played 42 games in all competitions last season, scoring seven goals.
