Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos will not move to Manchester United and the speculation is agent mischief-making to land an improved contract at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 29-year-old Spain international is currently unhappy at the terms of the Real contract extension currently on offer, after holding talks with the Los Blancos chiefs on Wednesday.
United have been heavily linked with Ramos, but Ferdinand is not convinced a move to Old Trafford will happen, and said: “Ramos to Manchester United? It ain’t happening. He ain’t going to Manchester United.
“He’s at Real Madrid with, I think, a new contract coming up. Maybe the agent is putting [rumours] out saying he wants [to leave] so Real Madrid come back in with a bumper offer and he signs on the dotted line. Happy days.”
