PSG Agree Deal With Sergio Ramos
Ramos Rejected Advances From Premier League Clubs to Join PSG
Ramos will now join Mauricio Pochettino’s side after rejecting offers from Premier League clubs, including one which offered a higher salary than PSG. The Spaniard had been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City.
According to Bouhfasi, Ramos’ brother Rene, who is also his representative, was in Paris today to finalise the deal. A medical is expected to be completed in the coming days. The Parisians have also signed Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer with Achraf Hakimi expected to join the club soon.
Ramos left Real Madrid as the club captain after being unable to agree on a new deal with Los Blancos beyond this season. A difficult 2020/21 season plagued with injuries and poor performances led to his exit and omission from Luis Enrique’s Euro 2020 squad. He made over 700 appearances while at the Bernabeu and was the side’s captain during their last three Champions League triumphs.
Bouhafsi confirmed the news today on Twitter, saying: “#Ramos He has given his agreement to sign at PSG. The Madrid legend has rejected offers from English clubs, one that gave more money than PSG. His brother was in Paris today to finalize the player’s arrival. I should sign for two years in Paris.”
PSG Signing is Good News for Everyone
Real Madrid’s dire financial state means letting Ramos go was a necessary business decision. Manchester United’s reported pursuit of Raphael Varane means there is a better option available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer than the 35-year-old. Pep Guardiola has a strong defensive unit already and is more focused on forwards like Harry Kane and Jack Grealish.
Ramos can join a side that is threatening to win the Champions League soon, which would be the ultimate conclusion to a trophy-laden spell in football. The centre-back is almost guaranteed to finish his career with more domestic trophies in different countries before ending one of modern football’s great careers.
