Manchester United on alert as Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos 'hand in' transfer requests at Real Madrid

The pair reportedly put in the request after Real lost 1-0 to rivals Atletico Madrid at the weekend

Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos have reportedly handed in a transfer request, putting Manchester United and a host of other European clubs on high alert.

Spanish news outlet Sport has reported that Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos have handed in their transfer requests at Real Madrid.

The pair, delivered the news in person to Real president Florentino Perez after Real's 1-0 defeat by neighbours Atletico Madrid last weekend, it has been reported.

Spanish media are reporting a crisis at Real who are third in La Liga, 12 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Defender Ramos was the subject to a summer-long transfer saga at Manchester United and rumours that Ronaldo could return to Old Trafford have persisted.

The forward played for United between 2003 and 2009 before his then-world record £80m move to Real.

The Portuguese scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Old Trafford side, and won three Premier League titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup and one Champions League in a trophy-laden spell at the club.
