Etihad Stadium side want Bernabeu defender.

Check in to Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur

Man City will attempt to lure Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos to the Etihad Stadium according to the Sunday People.

The 27 year old is eager to secure a lucrative Bernabeu contract that would see him earn the same salary as star Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale but Real Madrid are not ready to play ball and this has left the door open to a potential bid from any prospective suitors.

Ramos earns a massive £4.6m a year but is looking for a deal in excess of £6m, a sum the Spanish giants are not willing to pay out. French big spenders PSG have taken note and are ready to offer as much as £7.2m a year and Man City look ready to enter the race for the World Cup winner.

The former Sevilla man has a release clause set at £41m and Man City are ready to launch an opening bid of £32.5m to test the waters as Manuel Pellegrini looks to strengthen his defence in view of the continued absence of captain Vincent Kompany.

Ramos is into his ninth season at Real Madrid and has made a total of 366 appearances for the club and the adaptable defender is equally comfortable at right-back as he is in the centre of defence.

The talented defender also has a massive 114 Spanish national team caps to his name.
