Manchester City are reportedly considering offering Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos two year deal this summer.
The veteran Spanish defender will become a free agent by the time his current deal with Los Blancos expires this month.
He however looks ready to leave the Santiago Bernabeu after failing to reach a reasonable agreement with the Spanish League giants.

Meanwhile, sources close to Pep Guardiola claim the former Barcelona boss is looking for an experienced leader, with Ramos fitting the bill of what the manager wants according to SunSport and ESPN.
The Citizens reached their first-ever Champions League final this recently concluded season but failed to lift the title after losing 1-0 to Chelsea in Portugal.
Ramos on the other hand has won the silverware four times in his 16-year stay in the Spanish capital. Not only that, but he has also won the World Cup and Euro Championships with Spain.
The publication claims that he might be given an option for a one-year extension after the expiration of his initial two-year deal if all things go as planned.
Alternatively, he might be heading to their sister team in the Major League Soccer New York City for the optional extension.
However, negotiating is still ongoing with Real Madrid and they could finalise everything by the end of this week.
With Eric Garcia set to join Barcelona this summer, Ramos might be a good addition to the City centre-back department which already has the likes of Ruben Dias, John Stones, and Nathan Ake.
What Sergio Ramos said after he was omitted from Spain squad for Euro 2020
Legit.ng earlier reported that Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is not mad at Luis Enrique for omitting his name from the national team's preliminary squad.
The 35-year-old has had arguably one of the worst years of his career as he has struggled with injury and consistency through the 2020-21 campaign.
Since March, Ramos has only played once due to muscle injuries and a knee problem that required surgery and these factors were key in his omission, despite his undeniable quality in defence.
