Manchester United want Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos to publicly declare his intention to leave, as per report in Marca.

Manchester United had earlier tabled a bid of A?28.6 million for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, which was rejected immediately by the Los Blancos.

Securing a defender is on top of the cluba s agenda, with Sergio Ramos said to be their priority target.

Reports emerging from Spanish Paper Marca claim that the club want Sergio Ramos to now push for a move to Manchester United and make his stance publicly clear following recent quotes by manager Rafael Benitez that the player is certain to stay at the club.

Manchester United launch bid, ask Ramos to declare his desire to leave

The Madrid-based newspaper recently claimed Manchester United had made a a 60 million for the Real Madrid captain and now have a feature story on its front page on Friday under the headline: “United ask Ramos to declare that he wants to leave.”

Marca report that Sergop Ramos will not declare his desire to leave till after he meets with president Florentino Perez which would be seen as disrespectful to the Spanish club, otherwise.

AS also reports the a 60m bid but says Real are holding out for more and do not want to include David De Gea in any deal.

What this means for De Geaa s move to Real Madrid?

When asked about De Geaa s move to Real Madrid, Benitez had earlier refused to get drawn into the topic. He said: a Ita s very simple, De Gea is not our player so nothing to say about him.a

David de Gea was widely expected to swap Old Trafford for the Bernabeu this summer after the goalkeeper refused a reported A?200,000-per-week offer to stay at Manchester United.

.

It was also reported earlier by reliable papers like the Times, that Manchester United were all but resigned to losing their goalkeeper and believe that only a u-turn equivalent to what Wayne Rooney did to sign a contract in 2010 will prevent the Spain goalkeeper from joining Real Madrid.

However, the deal seemed to have now hit a roadblock, with Manchester United refusing to let the player go for the reported 30 million Euro that has been offered by Real Madrid unless they get Sergio Ramos.

Reports in the Telegraph said that Manchester United had taken a very hard stance, making it clear to Real Madrid that they are prepared to run down the contract of David De Gea, which has only one year to go, rather than selling them the goalkeeper this season should they not allow them to secure Sergio Ramos.

Despite AS reporting otherwise, it is an open secret by now that Real Madrid want to sign David De Gea and the player wants to move to the Spanish capital.

And should Sergio Ramos decide to move the club will surely push for the deal of David De Gea to go through having chased him all summer.
