Former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos ended his long association with the club and his next destination is set to be Paris Saint-Germain. The centre back has reportedly agreed to a two-year contract with the Ligue 1 club.
Sergio Ramos, who was part of the Los Blancos for 16 seasons, announced his departure from the club last week. The two parties apparently could not reach an agreement over the length of the contract, which led to his exit.
Sources in France claim that Ramos’ brother and agent Rene Ramos was in Paris on Thursday morning to finalize the deal.
All that is left in the deal is the medical, which will be scheduled soon. Following successful completion of the medicals, the 35-year-old will be unveiled by the club and will partner alongside Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos at the heart of the defence.
The reports suggest that the veteran has been offered a one-year contract with the option to extend it for another 12 months. Moreover, he is expected to take a pay cut as well.
Ramos was apparently presented an ambitious process by PSG’s sporting director Leonardo.
PSG mean business during the off season
The 2029-21 season was a bleak one for the Ligue 1 giants as they failed to capture the league title and also bowed out of the Champions League stage in the semi-finals.
While PSG are expected to make a statement to reclaim the league, their focus as always will be for their maiden Champions League title. The side have come close in the recent past and even made it to the finals last year, only to be defeated by Bayern Munich.
After Thomas Tuchel was sacked in December, the club appointed Mauricio Pochettino, and they are on the lookout to improve their squad across all the departments.
They have already sealed deals with the Milan duo Gianluigi Donnarumma and Achraf Hakimi. Moreover, PSG were able to hijack a transfer and rope in Giorgino Wijnaldum into the club as well. After securing Neymar’s contract as well, the only major question that remains is the future of Kylian Mbappe.
