Manchester United target Sergio Ramos has told Spanish television that he is “not negotiating with anyone” as speculation over his future continues.
The Real Madrid defender, 29, is said to be keen to leave the Bernabeu after 10 years in the Spanish capital, with Old Trafford said to be his destination of choice.
United made a bid of £28.6m last week, according to Sky sources, with Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Graham Hunter reporting that the Spain international had made his desire to leave very clear to Real Madrid, although publicly he has remained coy.
“I am not negotiating with anyone,” he told Canal Cuatro, when asked how negotiations were going.
He was subsequently asked if he would therefore be staying with Rafa Benitez’s side, to which he simply replied: “All is very well.”
Ramos has made 313 league appearance for Los Blancos since joining in 2005, scoring 40 goals during which time the club have won three La Liga titles as well as scoring in the final as they won their tenth European Cup in 2014.
