Ramos welcomes United link

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has admitted he is flattered following reports linking him with a move to Manchester United. The versatile Spain international has reportedly been targeted by Sir Alex Ferguson as the ideal man to bolster his defence as he can play at either right-back or centre-half. The 22-year-old has been one of Real's most consistent performers in each of their last two title-winning seasons following a €27million move from Sevilla in 2005. But despite admitting he is happy the Bernabeu, the 34-times capped international has suggested that a move to Old Trafford would interest him. "It is a good sign that such big teams are interested in me, but not I have no ideas about that," said Ramos. "I have a good contract with Madrid and I am focussed on the Spanish team. "When the European Championships finish we can see what happens." United have also been linked with a move for Ramos' Real Madrid team-mate and Brazil international forward Robinho. Meanwhile, speculation continues to link United winger Cristiano Ronaldo with a world-record transfer fee switch to the Spanish giants.
