Recent reports from Daily Express suggest that Manchester United are keen on signing free agent Sergio Ramos in the ongoing transfer window as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems determined to add to his options at the back.

Earlier this week, the Los Blancos released a statement confirming that Sergio Ramos would leave the club.

“Real Madrid announces that tomorrow, Thursday 17 June, at 12:30 pm, an act of tribute and farewell to our captain Sergio Ramos will be held, which will be attended by our president Florentino Perez.”

“Sergio Ramos will then appear before the media in a virtual press conference.”

The 180-times Spain international has spent nearly one and a half-decade at the Spanish capital, bagging 671 appearances in all competitions, winning 22 trophies over the course of his stay. So, it goes without saying that Ramos would bring plenty of experience to the English side and help them build a winning mentality.

Manchester United Keen On Signing Sergio Ramos: Can he Solve Solskjaer’s Defensive Problems?

Given the present circumstances, signing a quality centre-back should be the board’s first priority, as it’s beyond any doubt that the Red Devils certainly need to upgrade their options at the back. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is reportedly looking for an experienced centre-back to try and solve their issues at the back – and Sergio Ramos fits the bill perfectly.

Despite being 35, the Spain international still has a lot to offer, and if Solskjaer ends up securing his signature, he’ll play a crucial role in stabilizing United’s defence next season.
