Rio Ferdinand: Why Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger will not join Manchester United


Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger will not join the Red Devils in the summer.

The 36-year-old believes that the two are chasing new contracts with their respective clubs and that their agents have started all the rumours ahead of next month's summer transfer window.

Ramos has a £142m buy-out clause in his contract and Schweinsteiger has been urged by Germany legend Franz Beckenbauer to stay at the Bundesliga club.

"Ramos to Manchester United? It ain't happening. He ain't going to Manchester United," Ferdinand is quoted as saying by

"He's at Real Madrid with, I think, a new contract coming up.

"Maybe the agent is putting [rumours] out saying he wants [to leave] so Real Madrid come back in with a bumper offer and he signs on the dotted line. Happy days.

"I remember when I was at United and there were rumours he [Bastian Schweinsteiger] was coming to Manchester United; he wanted to come, he loves the club and sees himself as a Manchester United player, allegedly.

"Then he signs a new deal at Bayern Munich.

"I get the same feeling with the Ramos deal. It's not necessarily the players but the people looking after them bartering around for a new deal so they use other clubs sometimes.

"Schweinsteiger is in the [Ryan] Giggs and [Steven] Gerrard mould. He is a one-club man and I'm sure he would like to end his career at Bayern Munich."
