The Sergio Ramos transfer saga does not seem to cease, and it only gets more interesting with each passing day.
Reports have emerged now in the British press that the Real Madrid defender has already agreed to terms with Manchester United, and the transfer fee involved is a whopping £63.7million.
If the transfer becomes official, it is set to shatter the previous record of the highest fee ever paid by a British club for a player. Manchester United paid Real £59.7 million last summer to acquire the services of Angel di Maria, and now it seems the record is set to be broken.
The discussion about the future of Ramos has set the platter for mouthwatering stories developing all over the European media, and the player's transfer to the Premier League side now looks more imminent than before. While Louis van Gaal doesn't seem to end the pursuit of Ramos this summer, the Red Devils are also increasing their bid with firm intent.
Spanish daily AS has said that Ramos is 'transferable', despite Real previously ruling out selling Ramos. However, the fee now being quoted seems to have been received well with Los Blancos.
The Red Devils are also reportedly looking to sell out-of-favour right-back Rafael, as they look keen to generate fund from the sales of the Brazilian to fund the Ramos purchase.
According to Sky Sports, Galatasaray are keen to sign the 24-year-old Rafael who joined United from Fluminense in 2008.
Ramos has two years left on his current deal with the La Liga giants, and he has also reportedly fallen out with Real's president Florentino Perez and is understood to be assessing his future at the Bernabeu.
However, the 29-year-old versatile defender has never spoken out about the Man Utd negotiations, and has kept his silence.
"I am not negotiating with anyone," Ramos told Spanish TV station Cuatro a few days back.
The World Cup winner also maintained a stark silence when he was asked if he was going to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Even Ramos' teammate at Real, Cristiano Ronaldo is unwilling to reveal anything about the "Ramos to United" saga. The Portuguese master dribbler only got frustrated when he was asked about the possibility of the defender leaving Real.
"I don't know, I don't know!" Ronaldo said in an interview to Sports News Television (SNTV). He also echoed the same words once more, letting his frustration known.
Brtitish daily The Independent had reported last week, that according to AS, Ronaldo had called up his good friend Ramos in an attempt to persuade him to stay at Los Blancos.
It has been close to a decade that Ramos has been with Real Madrid. He has featured in a total of 445 games, and has scored 55 goals. He has also won 10 major trophies with the club - including three La Liga titles and a Champions League.
