If the deal goes through, which seems very unlikely as of now, it could prove to be a magnificent signing for Louis van Gaal as Ramos’s presence in the first team would motivate all the players and the 20-time English champions will get a very good leader at Old Trafford. Nicolas Otamendi rumors have calmed down as all eyes are monitoring Ramos’s situation at Real Madrid.
