Louis Saha reckons Sergio Ramos would be an ‘amazing’ signing for any team and reckons he could make an even greater impact than Thiago Silva has done at Chelsea.
The defender is a free agent after leaving Real Madrid this week having spent 16 years with the La Liga side.
Manchester United are tipped to be his next landing spot after they made an attempt to sign the Spain international in 2016, but the four-time Champions League summer will have a host of clubs after him.
And former Old Trafford striker Saha reckons the centre-half would be a shrewd piece of business for any club as he’s a proven winner.
Which club will Sergio Ramos join after leaving Real Madrid? Comment below
He told gamblingdeals.com: “If you see the impact of Thiago Silva at Chelsea, the impact of Sergio Ramos would be the same, or maybe even bigger.
“The guy is known for that type of leadership, has the ability to step up and score a lot of goals, he’s one of the best ever goalscoring defenders.
“He’s a big player on the big stage. If you want to win trophies, he’s as strong a signing as Thiago Silva, and there are few players who can galvanise a club like this.
“I think he’ll be an amazing signing.”
Ramos has been linked with a return to former club Sevilla, but he doesn’t feel it’s a viable option.
He was also quizzed about a shock move to Barcelona, but the Spain international says a switch to Madrid’s rivals is “impossible.”
He said at his farewell press conference: “We never thought in any moment about any other team. Since January I’ve been on market, so there have been some calls, interested clubs. But we never had in mind leaving Real Madrid. From now, we will look for a good option.
“Sevilla is the other club of my heart, had marvellous time there. But today I am not thinking about that option. Barca would be a resounding no, impossible to see Ramos in a Barca shirt.
“These have been difficult months, not easy at all. I am fully happy when I’m on the pitch. But now I can say I am recovered, really looking forward to competing again.
“There are no hard feelings, no problems. This will always be my home, always be in my heart.”
Ramos revealed he turned down an offer from Man Utd five years ago but was flattered that a club of their stature was keen on signing him.
In an interview with COPE, he said: “There was an offer from United. I considered changing for a while but Real Madrid was always my priority and there were no economic reasons.
“Did I feel cheated [by Madrid]? No, but I did feel disappointed for a while. There were some troubles that came to an end.
“Flattery from big clubs is always good as this is because you are doing well, but the fans and my club want me.”
