Juande Ramos is urging Real Madrid to break the bank for Aston Villa wing ace Ashley Young.

The Daily Mail says Young's form is attracting attention and Real Madrid boss Ramos has alerted his new club.

Young, 23, is unlikely to quit Villa Park even if the Spaniards stumped up a fee in the region of £27million.

The forward last month signed a new four-year deal. Villa boss Martin O'Neill has showered Young with praise recently, describing him as 'world class' and putting him on a par with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
