Madrid have reportedly grown frustrated of Ramos’ recent comments and may be willing to sell the Spaniard, especially if it helps United loosen their grip on David de Gea. With United now reportedly tabling an official bid, a deal could be on – and what a deal it would be!

The knock on affect of a transfer could see Madrid go for Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny, with a £21million bid mooted for the 29 year old French defender. Arsenal no longer need to succumb to large bids from foreign clubs, and so they are likely to refuse any approach for one of their key players. Benitez is a huge fan though, and a bid of £30million and lucrative contract could tempt the player and club.

Even if Madrid manage to sign a replacement in Koscielny, they are unlikely to accept United’s £30million bid – I think they would hold out for a fee of at least £40million, or De Gea and £25million.
