Manchester United and Liverpool have both made moves to try and sign Sergio Ramos, according to reports.
Both Marca and El Chiringuito have reported that Ramos is staring at a Real Madrid exit following a meeting with president Florentino Perez earlier this month.
The experienced Spanish defender is said to have clashed with Perez in the dressing room following their Champions League failure against Ajax.
According to AS, Liverpool and United are now amongst those who have made contact with Ramos’ representatives as they look to hand him an escape route from the Bernabeu this summer.
Several clubs have been alerted to his situation, with Juventus also interested, but he could be set for a Premier League switch.
Ramos, 33, could be set to take on a new challenge after a 14-year stint with Real Madrid.
United were interested in acquiring his services back in 2015 before he penned a new contract with the La Liga club.
He is now back on their radar as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eyes defensive reinforcements as part of his summer rebuild at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Liverpool’s interest comes after he angered Reds fans by injuring Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final last year.
The pair clashed as Salah was forced off with a shoulder injury early on and the Reds went on to lose after two Loris Karius howlers.
Jurgen Klopp remains keen to strengthen his side as they look to go one better having finished as Premier League runners-up to Manchester City this season.
Real Madrid skipper Ramos has a glittering CV featuring four Champions League victories and four La Liga titles as well as a World Cup win and two European Championships with Spain.
But he may now be tempted to test himself in England as United and Liverpool consider a summer swoop.
