Man United transfers: Sergio Ramos unhappy at Madrid, says ex-president

Ramon Calderon says that Manchester United would be 'very lucky' should Sergio Ramos join them from Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos is not happy at Real Madrid and could seal a transfer to Manchester United this summer, according to the Spanish club’s former president Ramon Calderon.

The Spain international’s future has been a source of relentless speculation in recent days amid reports that United are keen on luring the defender to Old Trafford as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his defensive options.

United have been linked with a cash-plus-player bid for Ramos including David De Gea, who is thought to be keen on a move to Real Madrid this summer.

And former Real Madrid chief Calderon feels that the situation will become clear in the coming weeks as Ramos’ future is decided.

Calderon told talkSPORT: “It is clear that he is unhappy because the president has refused to extend his contract.

“I find it like a punishment because he supported Carlo Ancelotti publicly, he said it was a mistake to sack him, and he is also backing Iker Casillas.

“Let us see what happens in the next few weeks. It is going to be very exciting to know what is happening. If Sergio goes to Man United, they will be very lucky.”

Speaking this week, Ramos insisted that he is “not worried” about the continuing speculation about his future.

He has helped Real Madrid win three Spanish league titles during his time at the Bernabeu and also helped them win the Champions League in 2013-14.
