Dimitar Berbatov reckons a transfer move for Sergio Ramos “would work out well” for Man Utd after the success of Thiago Silva’s deal at Chelsea.

Ramos has been at Real Madrid for 15 years, racking up an impressive 660 appearances, winning five La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.

Silva had been at Paris Saint-Germain for eight years before his summer move to the Premier League and his leadership skills has helped Chelsea shore up their defence this term.

OPINION: Champions League Winners and Losers

And Berbatov thinks Silva “has proven that it is never too late to move to the Premier League” and reckons Ramos could make an impact at Man Utd.

Berbatov told Betfair: “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.

“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.

“I see him as a Real Madrid player, however, and I think player and club will find a solution and he will stay. I’ll be surprised if he leaves, but if things don’t work out then I’m sure a lot of clubs will be interested in him.”
