Manchester United Transfer News: The Red Devils are reportedly looking to add a center-back to their ranks in the summer. Owing to this, they have shortlisted Paris Saint-Germain center-back Sergio Ramos as a shocking option!
The Red Devils have suffered one of their worst seasons in recent years. One of their biggest problems has been their defence. Hence United are looking to improve this before next season.
Manchester United completed the signing of Raphael Varane in the summer. A lot was expected from the highly-rated centre-back. But the Frenchman has been struggling with fitness issues throughout the season.
To add to this, club captain Harry Maguire has also been off the pedal this season. The England international has been guilty of making a lot of mistakes. This has also led to Maguire being booed while playing for the national team.
Manchester United Transfer News: Will the Red Devils sign Sergio Ramos?
As per the Hard Tackle, Manchester United are in search of a center-back in the summer. Owing to this, they have shortlisted Sergio Ramos as one of their potential options.
The Paris Saint-Germain defender is one of the best center-backs to ever grace the game owing to his legendary tenure at Real Madrid. But Ramos’ time has been disastrous with PSG up until now.
Nevertheless, with the future of Eric Bailly and Hardy Maguire up in the air. Manchester United are reportedly looking to take a chance with Sergio Ramos. The Red Devils are hoping to recreate the Varane-Ramos partnership from their Real Madrid days.
Injuries have plagued both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane since they left Real Madrid in the summer. Both the players have struggled to keep themselves fully fit. But the Spaniard has experienced it worse among the two.
Sergio Ramos has played just 8 games for PSG in all competitions since joining the club in the summer of last year. Owing to this, the defender has failed to get going in the 2021/22 season.
Owing to his injuries and a loss of form, Sergio Ramos was excluded from Spain’s squad in the UEFA Euros 2021 and the UEFA Nations League 2021 competitions. With PSG looking to re-haul themselves, Ramos could eventually be forced to leave in the summer.
Should United invest in Ramos?
Though the 36-year-old center-back is one of the best defenders in history, his current form isn’t up to the mark. To add to this, Manchester United are still coping with the injury concerns of Raphael Varane and shouldn’t make a similar mistake with Sergio Ramos.
MLS side Inter Miami are also keeping an eye on Sergio Ramos as they look to sign him in the summer. Hence it has to be seen if United go for Ramos or they instead sign a younger defender in the summer
