Manchester United have lined up two World Cup winners Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sergio Ramos as their summer transfer targets as they weigh up the prospect of losing goalkeeper David de Gea to Real Madrid.

Real defender Sergio Ramos, 29, is contracted with the Spanish giants until 2017, while Bayern Munich midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger’s deal runs until 2016.

The deal to sign 2010 World Cup winner and two-time European championship (2008 & 2012) medalist, Ramos, from Real has been reported as part of a deal that will see goalkeeper De Gea, 24, move to Spain.

The Independent reports that Ramos, a central defender who can also play as a right full-back, has not been impressed by the Santiago Bernebeu outfit’s willingness to allow his contract to run down into its final two years.

Signed from Sevilla for £19.3m in 2005, the defender has a €200m (£46.5m) release clause inserted in his contract. Real, who recently named Rafael Benitez as their new manager will understandably expect a fee in case of a part exchange deal with De Gea.

Ramos has made 445 appearances for Real and scored the injury-time equalizer which forced extra time in their Uefa Champions League triumph over Atletico Madrid in 2014. He has 128 international caps.

German World Cup winner, Schweinsteiger, 30, is a one-club player having being with the Bavarians all career. As well as winning the Champions League in 2013, he has won eight Bundesliga titles.

Former Bayern manager, Louis van Gaal, is keen to boaster his squad following a fourth-placed finish in his maiden Premier League campaign.

United have already secured the services of Dutch midfielder Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven for £31m.

They have also shown interest in Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, who however sees their interest as “flattering.”
