Manchester United and Real Madrid are involved in a high stakes stand-off as the futures of David De Gea and Sergio Ramos continue to dominate the headlines.


The latest reports in Spain suggest both clubs are refusing to move in their valuations of the two players, with Real Madrid declining an invite to up their offer for goalkeeper De Gea as he has just one year left on his current United deal.

Meanwhile, United are reported to be standing firm with their €40m valuation of Ramos, with both sides waiting for the other to move in their opening offers.


It means De Gea and Ramos may well be set to take part in the pre-season tours planned by United and Real Madrid with speculation over their respective futures continuing.

Meanwhile, Southampton sources have confirmed that no fresh offer has been received from Manchester United for their French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, who trained again with his current club on Tuesday.

Some reports earlier in the week had suggested that Schneiderlin was due to travel to Manchester for a medial as early as today (Tuesday), but they proved to be wide of the mark.
