Manchester United are said to be ‘upset’ after their one-year contract offer to Sergio Ramos was promptly turned down by the Spanish football legend.
As reported by The Sun, the Premier League club had proposed a deal worth £73,000-a-week, only to find out that Ramos ‘instantly rejected’ the offer.
Following Raphael Varane’s injury last month, the Red Devils made a late play to sign Ramos as the transfer window prepared to shut
After spending two years with Paris Saint-Germain, Ramos eventually signed with his former club, Sevilla, bypassing not just the allure of Old Trafford but also opportunities in Saudi Arabia.
At 37, Ramos would have been a very temporary fix for Manchester United, but some may argue that’s precisely what Ten Hag was seeking.
The intention was for Ramos to fill the void left by injured Varane and add quality depth to a defense that currently includes a 30-year-old prone to injuries, a 35-year-old who’s also frequently injured, and a player who nearly joined West Ham last month after negotiations broke down.
