Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has reportedly called on Madrid hierarchy to double their bid for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea so as to lure the player to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
According to Spanish media outlet Don Balon, the Spaniard wants to play alongside his compatriot at Real Madrid in the 2018-19 season.
He, therefore, wants the club to do everything possible to bring the impressive goalie to the Spanish capital.
Real Madrid have been a longtime admirer of the 27-year-old Spanish international but the club have seen their bids been constantly rejected by United who are not willing to part ways with the world-class goalie.
The Galacticos were on the brink of signing De Gea in 2015 but the deal was cancelled after the Red Devils failed to get his replacement before the close of the window.
Don Balon also suggest that the La Liga giants are ready to make an improved offer for the player’s signature when the summer transfer window commences.
Though the Red Devils still have another world-class goalie in the person of Argentine shot-stopper Romero, they are not willing to sanction De Gea’s switch to Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
It was reported earlier in the month via Starsports that United are ready to make the Spaniard one of the highest paid goalies in the world as they are considering offering him a new deal which will reportedly earn £350,000 as weekly wages.
Ramos also revealed that the player is unhappy at Old Trafford due to Mourinho’s tactics and relationship with his players.
