Manchester City are reportedly monitoring Sergio Ramos with a view to making a move for the Real Madrid man next summer.
Reports in both England and France this week suggest that the 27-year-old is looking to improve his current contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, which currently expires in June 2017.
Whilst Madrid’s position on opening renegotiations is currently unclear, it is understood that Manuel Pellegrini’s City are looking at coming in with a bid next summer, at the player’s perceived higher salary expectations.
The Sun and Le10Sport both suggest that the centre-back may be willing to consider a move, with his current mentality one of ‘uncertainty’ at Madrid’s direction under Carlo Ancelotti.
Ramos is Los Blancos’ second captain after Iker Casillas and, alongside the goalkeeper, is believed to have instigated and led a players’ meeting with Ancelotti at the start of this week.
