Cape Town - Real Madrid are refusing to entertain the idea of allowing centre-back Sergio Ramos to leave the club.
Manchester United's attempts to lure Sergio Ramos have been KO'ed by Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez, according to Guardian.
The English newspaper report that Ramos met with Perez, who informed the defender that he will not be allowed to leave the club amid interest from the Red Devils.
The Old Trafford club have reportedly had two offers rejected by Madrid with the club putting a "not for sale" sign on the experienced player's head.
It seems unlikely that Ramos will be able to push through with a move to Manchester United after being told that making a public demand will merely anger the club's fans and not change the club's stance on the matter.
Ramos has two years left on his current contract at the Santiago Bernabéu.
