Liverpool to challenge United for £30 million Madrid star

Liverpool are to challenge Manchester United for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos after the player admitted he would be interested in a move to the Premier League should the chance present itself. (

The Spanish international is currently on duty at the European Championships in Austria & Switzerland. Ramos, 22, was last week linked with a move to United as part of a possible deal which would see Cristiano Ronaldo head the other way.

It is now thought that Rafa Benitez will not let United have it easy in the race to sign the £30 million rated defender. Ramos is widely regarded as one of Europe's best defenders and it is understood Real won't let him go cheap if he is to leave.

I personally would love to see Ramos move to the Premier League. He is a very exciting defender who I feel will develop into one of the worlds best defenders wherever he ends up. I would favour United in the race, simply because I only think Real will let him go if they manage to buy Ronaldo.
