This would put a spanner in the works for Manchester City…
Pep Guardiola is never one to shy away from the spectacular and when it comes to doing what’s right for his side, he is always one to pull out what’s needed. Manchester City, with all their financial backing, can rest assured they are in safe hands.
Where Pep feels Manchester City need the most work is, perhaps unsurprisingly, their defence. The defence is always the most pivotal area of any Pep Guardiola philosophy, so a lot of work and money has already been invested into this Citizens backline.
But, truth be told, they were hit heavily by the departure of club legend Vincent Kompany, and many would argue they have yet to truly replace the Belgian brick wall. This claim is hard to be disputed because in his prime, there weren’t many defenders in the world better than him.

But there was certainly at least one, and that is the best defender in the world of this generation, Sergio Ramos. The Spaniard has been bossing the backline at the Santiago Bernabeu for many years now but his contract is soon to run out.
According to a new report from ESPN, City are closely monitoring the situation involving Sergio Ramos, and they hope to sign the Spaniard on a free deal this summer. This would be City’s best bit of business for some time as the 34-year-old still has fuel left in the tank.
Signing Ramos would make City the most complete outfit in the Premier League, as they will finally match Liverpool in their monstrous defence. Virgil van Dijk could finally have a competitor as the best defender in the league, although there’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition.
Do you think Manchester City will sign Sergio Ramos on a free transfer?
