Guillem Balague gives Sergio Ramos transfer update

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.

Well-known Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his take on the Sergio Ramos transfer saga.

According to BBC Sport, Manchester United are interested in signing the Spain international defender from Real Madrid this summer.

Signing of the summer?

Ramos is one of the best centre-backs in the world. In fact, the Spaniard may even be the best defender on the planet.

The former Sevilla star has been a mainstay in the Madrid team for years, and is one of the best and most influential players in Los Blancos’ current squad.

Admiration for the Spain international increases when one considers that he actually started out as a right-back and was one of the best in that position.

Now Ramos is a world-class centre-back, and he can also play in defensive midfield. The fact that he features regularly for Madrid is evidence enough of his class and calibre.

If United are able to sign Ramos, then they will be making the signing of the summer.
