As new broke on Sunday evening of a potential swap deal involving Manchester United goalkeeper and Real Madrid vice-captain Sergio Ramos, there has been the inevitable huge reaction on social media.
Guardian Sport revealed that the Red Devils are genuinely interested in the world class defender after reports in Spain [via Metro Sport] have revealed that contract talks between the player and Real Madrid have stalled in recent weeks.
Ramos has two years remaining on his current deal at the Santiago Bernabeu could be used as makeweight in a deal to bring long-time Los Blancos target De Gea to the club this summer.
There is a possibility that Ramos could still commit his future to Madrid and is using United’s interest to secure a better deal at the club, however, that has not stopped a number of Red Devils supporters from getting excited at the prospect of Ramos making a shock switch to Old Trafford this summer.
Take a look at a selection of Tweets as some have responded to the speculation:

I don’t think that Ramos is a realistic signing. I want him at United but I can’t see him leaving Madrid now, despite all the rumours.

If we sign Sergio Ramos, he will be our greatest signing under the Van Gaal era so far. #MUFC

If Woodward was to pull off deals for Schweinsteiger & Ramos we’ll have to name a street after him.
