Manchester United will have a born winner if they sign Sergio Ramos on a free transfer this summer. United legend Rio Ferdinand has labelled Ramos one of the greatest defenders of all time ahead of a possible exit from the Bernabeu.
United are missing players with a track record of winning trophies.
Edinson Cavani is by far the most successful in that regard in the Red Devils squad.
However, the Uruguay forward looks set to leave at the end of his contract this summer.
Bringing in a player such as Ramos would help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side get over the line on the biggest of occasions.
“He’s a relentless winner and he’s got that character. When the big moments come, he’s always stood up.”
But as his contract winds down, the belief that Ramos’ future may be elsewhere grows.
United are in the market for a defender and have been linked with another Real player in Raphael Varane.
But they would go a long way to find someone with more of a winning mentality than Ramos, even if at 35 it would only be a short-term deal.
