Ramos ‘agrees two-year deal with PSG’ after leaving Real Madrid on free

Sergio Ramos has signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain following his release from Real Madrid.

The Spaniard’s 16-year spell at the Bernabeu came to an end in the summer after his contract expired.

Los Blancos refused to give into the 35-year-old’s demands after telling him he had to endure a pay cut due to the Covid crisis.

Ramos insisted he wanted to stay at Real but, in the last week before his deal expired, the club took their offer off the table.

It meant he had no choice but to leave Madrid, the club he has become a footballing legend with.

Commonly regarded as one of the best defenders of his generation, it is no surprise to see him snapped up so soon.

And PSG were always at the forefront for his signature with bundles of cash at their disposal and Ramos has signed a two-year deal with the French club.

According to RMC Sport, his brother and agent has been in Paris to finalise a disagreement.

The report also states that Mauricio Pochttino fended off interest from two Premier League clubs to secure the signing of Ramos.

Though not stated, Chelsea have been linked with the Spain international over the summer with Thomas Tuchel looking to bolster his defence.

And Manchester United have been interested in the centre-back over the years, though it is not mentioned if the Red Devils were involved this summer.

Ramos’ former partner at Real Madrid Raphael Varane is definitely on their shortlist and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to secure his signature as soon as a deal for Jadon Sancho is wrapped up.

RMC Sport also report that Ramos turned down one of the Premier League clubs despite their salary being a much higher offer than that being on show at PSG.

A medical is set to go ahead over the coming days before an announcement is confirmed.

The Parc des Princes outfit are desperate to win the Champions League and view the defender as a brilliant acquisition due to his experience in the tournament.

The veteran star has won the trophy four times with Real Madrid, adding to his five La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, four FIFA Club World Cups, three UEFA Super Cups and five Spanish League Cups.

PSG have already looked to make some early moves in the transfer window after tying Neymar down to a new contract.

They stole Georginio Wijnaldum from under Barcelona’s noses with a late bid and also have plans to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba.
