Sergio Ramos has lifted the lid on last summer’s potential switch to Manchester Utd.

Ramos was pondering a move away from Real Madrid – he said that money was never the main objective, and he maintains that he always wanted to stay at the Bernabeu.

Subsequently he signed a new long term deal, and he said that he would like to retire with Los Blancos.

He told Spanish radio programme El Partido de las 12:

“There was a firm offer, on paper. For a moment I thought about a change of scene, but Real Madrid was always my priority. I felt disappointed, but not due to economic problems like people said.

“I have not heard about (interest from Chelsea). Many things have always been said.

“Flattery from big clubs is always good as this is because you are doing well, but if the fans and my club want me.

“While my fans and my club want me, my first thought is to retire here.”
