The Guardian have Manchester United fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Sergio Ramos is set to pen a new deal with Real Madrid.
That of course means the club will not land the defender, and after rumours once again began circling that the club had tried to reignite their interest in the player, they look like they have failed once again.
Now we think that Louis van Gaal will want to try and get yet another defender into the club, with John Stones a potential option.
A load of Manchester United fans enjoying a pint over by the billiards table feel that Ramos would have been the perfect signing for the club, and are actually really gutted at this news – but the United fans here in the Tavern are pinning their hopes on Van Gaal signing Nicolas Otamendi from Valencia!
Manchester United fans. Do you think that the club need to move for another defender? Is John Stones the one you want to sign? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
