Etihad Stadium side chase Bernabeu star.
Man City are lining up a big money move for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos according to the Metro.
The Etihad Stadium side are ready to offer the 28 year old a massive £7.7m a year contract, which works out at around £150k a week, and boss Manuel Pellegrini is keen to reunite with his former Bernabeu charge.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is also keen on Ramos, who’s contract expires in 2017, with the player’s agent claiming that an unnamed English side had made an official offer for his client over the summer.
Pellegrini’s side invested £32m in French youngster Eliaqium Mangala in the summer and will look to the former FC Porto man to partner Vincent Kompany as his central defensive unit so one wonders quite where Ramos might fit in.
Ramos can also play at right-back but that’s an area Man City are well and truly covered in with Pablo Zabaleta battling Bacary Sagna for a starting berth.
Real Madrid signed Ramos from Sevilla in the summer of 2005, spending £22m on the then teenager, and he has gone on to make 413 appearances for the Spanish giants.
