Manchester United have reportedly been given a clear path to sign Sergio Ramos after Paris Saint-Germain dropped out of the race, writes ANTHONY CHAPMAN.
RMC claims Mauricio Pochettino is keen on signing the former Real Madrid captain, whose shock Bernabeu departure was confirmed this week.
However, Ramos is demanding a two-year contract on wages worth £200,000-a-week.
And PSG are refusing to enter talks unless Ramos, 35, has a change of heart and drops his demands.
That means United could now be frontrunners for the veteran defender after he also refused to entertain an offer from former side Sevilla.
Ramos is seen as an ideal partner for Red Devils captain Harry Maguire.
