Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov believes that his former club should make a move for Real Madrid skipper, Sergio Ramos as a move to Old Trafford "would work out well", should he not agree to a new contract with the Los Blancos.

Ramos' contract with Madrid expires in the summer of 2021 and as things stand he will become a free agent next January considering that he is yet to agree to new terms with the Spanish club. Real for their part remain optimistic that their best player will sign a new deal and eventually retire at the Bernabeu.

Berbatov though believes that the Red Devils should make a move for the 34-year-old as he is "world class" and has plenty of football left to give.

"There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Sergio Ramos, according to reports both the player and club are yet to come to an agreement on a new contract. With Ramos 34 years old, they are probably fighting over a one-year or two-year contract," he told Betfair.

“Thiago Silva, who is even older at 36 years old, has proven that it is never too late to move to the Premier League and so far it is working out well for the Brazilian. I'm sure if Ramos wanted to move to a club like United then it would work out well for him too. He's in great shape, he's still a world-class defender and in my opinion there's still a lot of football left in him."

Ramos who is in his 16th season with Madrid is widely hailed as one of the best defenders in the history of the sport, winning everything there is to for both club and country and no doubt would be a valuable addition to United's defence, if they do manage to lure him to England.
