The 29-year-old has another two years left on his contract at the Bernabeu, but with an extension still not agreed it could be that Los Blancos decide to sell now to get a return on one of their star players. This would be a major surprise, with the defender becoming synonymous with the Galacticos since joining them in 2005 from Sevilla.

In his ten season with Real the Spain international has played 445 times, and scored a surprisingly high 55 goals in all competitions. He also has 128 caps for his country, and has won every trophy available at one time or another. As such it would be a huge coup for any team who managed to sign the centre-back.

The Red Devils are apparently closest to doing so at the moment, and are indeed in need of a centre-back. Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and Jonny Evans all looked error prone during the last campaign, and manager Louis van Gaal was forced to rely heavily on goalkeeper David De Gea to help them qualify for the Champions League.
