Man United legend discusses Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger reports

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand asks whether Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger are using Red Devils

Rio Ferdinand has questioned whether Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger are using Manchester United’s interest to secure improved contracts at their current clubs.

The Germany international has emerged as a target for United manager Louis van Gaal in recent weeks, with Schweinsteiger having just over a year remaining on his current Bayern Munich deal.

Real Madrid defender Ramos, meanwhile, is set to become a free agent in the summer of 2017 unless the World Cup winner agrees a new deal with the 10-time European champions.

The Spain international could be used as a makeweight in a deal to sign United goalkeeper David De Gea, whilst Van Gaal previously coached Schweinsteiger during a two-year spell at Bayern.

But Ferdinand took to Twitter to express his skepticism.

However, former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann was quick to respond to Ferdinand and defend the integrity of his compatriot Schweinsteiger.

The Germany midfielder has been with Bayern all his career and won his eighth league title last season.

Ramos, meanwhile, has won three La Liga titles, three Copa del Rey crowns and the Champions League.
