Liverpool Set To Rival Manchester United For Real Madrid Ace: A Bizarre Unlikely Move For Klopp?

Although the season has not yet reached its conclusion with the European glory still up for grabs, the madness of transfer window is already hitting the headlines with some shocking and bizarre rumours across various tabloids. But the latest one has to be the most outlandish one, particularly for the Liverpool fans following last season’s painful Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Liverpool, of all clubs, have contacted Sergio Ramos’ entourage for a potential switch to Anfield. The 33-year-old Real Madrid centre-back was lambasted by the Reds’ supporters when a clash with Mohamed Salah forced the latter to leave the pitch in tears early in the game.

The fans labelled it as a deliberate attempt to injure the high-flying Egyptian, and the saga remains a matter of debate till date due to Ramos’ on-field brawls over the years.

However, the Spaniard is indubitably an asset to the team due to his sheer commitment, fighting spirit and leadership traits. He is one of the most successful defenders for his club as well as the country having won numerous honours throughout his glittering career. But a rift with Florentino Perez has led to speculations of a summer exit in the aftermath of a dreadful 2018-19 campaign.

As per Marca, Ramos is considering a fresh challenge after 14 years of association, and the clubs across Europe have been alerted by this hypothesis even though things are still expected to take a few more twists and turns in the upcoming weeks. Juventus and Manchester United are also keen on roping him in to bolster the backline. However, a move to Liverpool seems unlikely in spite of the recent rumours.

The Reds are well equipped at the back with Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip forming a steady and resilient central defensive pairing during the second half of the campaign. Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren are there too as quality alternatives, and an offer for Ramos would be realistic only if they part ways with the Croatian this window.

Meanwhile, the re-appointment of Zinedine Zidane might see the defender changing his stance following his masterclass in three successive Champions League triumphs under the legendary Frenchman. Raphael Varane and the new signing Eder Militao are backed to serve the side for years to come, but the iconic defensive ace still has at least a couple of years left in him to drive the show at the zenith of European football.
