A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
The Spanish international was heavily linked with United this summer and the club reportedly felt they had a realistic chance of signing him, but the newspaper cites an unnamed source which suggests Louis van Gaal’s side now feels the centre-back was using their interest to get a better deal at the Bernabeu.
In truth United’s move for Ramos was always unlikely given his importance to Real and the fee it would have taken to sign him.
The Argentine international is another player to be regularly linked with United but the MEN claims the club have no intention of moving for either him or another rumour mill favourite, Nicolas Gaitan.
The England international has just a year remaining on his current contract but remains a firm van Gaal favourite at Old Trafford.
