Sergio Ramos is set to join Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.
The veteran opted to leave Real Madrid after his contract expired last month.
According to RMC Sport’s Mohamed Bouhafsi, the former Los Blancos skipper will move to PSG on a two-year contract.
Ramos has been a transfer target for Manchester United in the past, but they are currently pursuing his former teammate Raphael Varane.
The Frenchman is at the crossroads of his career as his Madrid contract expires at the end of next season.
He either has the option to extend his stay with the Spanish giants or move to a new club.
Earlier today, ESPN reported that the Red Devils are close to finalising a deal to bring Varane to the Theatre of Dreams.
However, PSG were also thought to be interested in acquiring his services.
If Ramos does end up in Paris, it is highly unlikely that Pochettino will also sign Varane.
The former Tottenham Hotspur manager already has two high-quality centre-backs, Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos, at his disposal.
This clears the path for United to sign Varane.
The Premier League club needs to wrap this deal up as soon as possible.
If they stall, Madrid may offer a much-improved contract to Varane which could compel him to stay in Spain.
