There is ‘no chance’ of Manchester United or Liverpool signing Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos.
The Spain international is out of contract at the end of the season at the Bernabeu with reports claiming the defender has rejected Real’s offer of a new deal.
United and Liverpool are among the clubs to be linked with a move for the 34-year-old but according to The Athletic, neither will make a move to sign the veteran with the expectation he will eventually sign a new deal in Madrid.

Arsenal are reportedly lining up a move for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon.
The Guardian report Arsenal have already held intital talks with the player’s representatives having heavily scouted him during his time in Ukraine.

Manchester United turned down the chance to sign Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic this season, according to reports.
Jovic joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 in a deal reportedly worth €60m but the Serbian has struggled to make an impact in the Spanish capital. Marca now report the 23-year-old is poised to rejoin Eintracht Frankfurt on loan until the end of the season.
It could all have been very different, however. Fabrizio Romano reports United were offered the chance to sign Jovic ‘months ago’ but turned it down, with the club signing Edinson Cavani on transfer deadline day last September.

Mesut Ozil’s agent is hopeful the Arsenal playmaker can agree a move to Fenerbahce can be completed soon.
Ozil has made no secret of his admiration for the Turkish giants in recent days and while there have also been talks with MLS side DC United, a move to Turkey this month appears to be edging closer.
“Ozil is not an ordinary Fenerbahce supporter. He’s a fanatic. He would only come to Turkey to play for Fenerbahce. I hope it will happen,” Sogut told beIN Sports Turkey.
“This transfer needs a process. It would be wrong to say certain things before something happens, but I hope it will happen. I always say that. Everyone understands what Ozil wants to do after his latest tweets.”
