Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos will extend his contract with the Spanish club until 2020, according to reports.

Marca report that a new contract between the defender and Real will be announced before August 23rd, the start of the Spanish season. Ramos has secured a significant raise, and this should end interest from Manchester United.

There were reports that United were favourites for Ramos's signature after he asked Real to negotiate with the English club after they put in two bids, one as high as £40 million, but both bids and Ramos's request was rejected, with president Florentino Perez unwilling to sell him after Iker Casillas moved to Porto this summer.

There are reports that having missed out on Ramos, United are now not interested in replacing him with another central defender from another club, but they have been recently linked to Everton's John Stones.
