While the former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur forward thinks Ramos would add ‘steel’ to the backline, he thinks a deal is unnecessary.
Berbatov has been impressed with how Bailly has handled himself since returning to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and thinks he can be a ‘rock’ at the heart of the United defence.
And if Bailly maintains this level of ‘focus’ and remains injury free, Berbatov thinks United don’t need to enter the transfer market for a new centre-half.
‘I have always said that United need another defender, but looking at the recent performances of Eric Bailly, if he stays focused and injury free then he can be a rock at the back of defence,’ Berbatov told Betfair.
‘But if United are going to buy someone, especially at this point in the season, them to be a perfect fit for the team. I don’t think they need anyone at the moment.
‘I have read the reports about Sergio Ramos and there is a lot of speculation about his future.
‘He could bring a lot of experience and steel to any team. Although he is 34, he is still a top player and United could do a lot worse.
‘Maybe they are arguing about money because it always comes down to money, but both sides should think long and hard about it because the grass isn’t always greener.’
