Man United to blow Chelsea out of water for Spain star

Manchester United are ready to offer Sergio Ramos a lucrative salary to reject interest from Chelsea at the end of the season, according to reports from the Daily Star.

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.
