The Spain international is currently one of Real Madrid’s key men, yet negotiations surrounding a new deal at the Bernabeu have stalled of late, prompting suggestions that he could be sold next year.
This has alerted Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho – who coached Ramos at Real – but United are ready to blow them out of the water by offering the defender a mammoth £105,000-per-week salary after tax.
Louis van Gaal is known to be looking to overhaul his defence over the coming transfer windows, with a leader of Ramos’ qualities just the sort of layer on his radar.
Such a wage may lure the feisty centre-back away from Madrid, as might the lure of a new challenge – he’s won just about every prize on offer since joining the club from Sevilla back in 2005.
Arsenal and Manchester City are also keen.
