Sergio Ramos has admitted that he is flattered by Manchester United's reported interest.

Defender happy to be noticed, but likely to stay with Real

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has admitted that he is flattered by Manchester United's reported interest. On Thursday, it was claimed that United were monitoring the Spain international's situation at the Bernabeu as manager Sir Alex Ferguson lines up a long-term replacement for Gary Neville. Ramos' brother, Rene, moved to play down the speculation, and the 22-year-old right-back has reiterated those comments, insisting he is happy with his current deal at Real. "It is a good sign that such big teams are interested in me, but not I have no ideas about that (a transfer)," Ramos told Marca.

Meeting

"I have a good contract with Madrid and I am focussed on the Spanish team. When the European Championships finish we can see what happens." Ramos' agent, Pedro Bravo, did admit that reports of him having recently travelled to England were true, but did not reveal whether he had met with United officials. "One thing I would ask is what clubs are not interested in a player like Sergio Ramos?" Bravo said. "It is true that on Monday I was in England. I have a good relationship with Manchester United."
