Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos was in Milan yesterday. AS says Ramos was in the Italian city for a whirlwind visit, which included lunch. AC Milan are being linked with Ramos, who is contracted to Real until 2013.

A new deal to 2017 worth up to €6.5 million-a-year has been agreed with Ramos' representatives, but remains unsigned.

News of Ramos' visit yesterday could force Real into pushing for Ramos to ink his new deal as soon as possible.
