Manchester City keen on Real Madrid defender


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is interested in signing Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos after the Spaniard has apparently fallen out with the club’s officials.

The centre-back has spoken to the club about his current contract, which is worth roughly around £4.6million a year, however, Ramos is wanting at least £2m more so that he is roughly earning the same as their top-earners.

Despite his demands, Madrid are not keen on bowing to his expectations and this could pave an opening for City to make a bid for the 27-year-old.

City, who are low on defensive cover due to Vincent Kompany’s injury, will have to pay around £41million in order to capture Ramos, due to his release clause in his contract, but that is a price they are willing to meet in order to sign a top-class centre-back.

Some reports are suggesting that City are even prepared to offer Ramos a whopping £7.2m a year, which could persuade him to make the move from Spain to England.
