United could still pull off amazing deal from the brink of collapse.
Manchester United have been handed a huge boost in their efforts to sign Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos, according to reports today.

United could now try again for the £63m-rated defender, though it seems unlikely that they would pay that kind of price for a player approaching his 30s.
