Photo: £31.7m Manchester United target Sergio Ramos in training for Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos is currently on tour with Real Madrid amid interest from Manchester United.

Sergio Ramos has been pictured in training for Real Madrid, amid rumours of Manchester United stepping up their interest in his services.

The Mirror report Manchester United have submitted an offer of €45 million - £31.7m - but the La Liga side are demanding more if they are to consider a deal.

The report states Real want double the amount offered for the defender, a price surely too steep for the 29-year-old, but there still may be room for compromise.

Madrid president Florentino Perez said this week, reported ESPN, that he had no intention of selling Ramos, but the defender is said to be keen on a switch.

The deal is likely to centre around Real's own pursuit of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, currently on tour with the Red Devils, who has just one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford.

Ramos is pictured above with Norwegian teenager Martin Odegaard, who is bidding to show during pre-season that he deserves to play a role for Real's first team this coming campaign.
