You wait all summer for some central defender news, and then two come along at once! Just as we were reeling from the shock — BANG! — that Phil Jones will be with Manchester United for the foreseeable future, all of a sudden — KAPOW! — out of nowhere comes this fat, juicy slice of gossip pie.

... though that might well be last week's news.

Whether this amounts to a formal transfer request isn't quite clear. But perhaps we can move this transfer in a little closer, from "exceptionally unlikely" to "quite unlikely". Hell, we've had good weather. Let's nudge it to "in the balance". You deserve it.

Update! Here's the man himself. Hunter. Not Ramos. That would be silly.
