PSG formalized Thursday the signing for two years, until 2023, of central defender Sergio Ramos. The former Real Madrid player arrives free in the capital, where the competition promises to be tough.
This time it’s official: Sergio Ramos is a Paris Saint-Germain player. As we revealed to you exclusively on RMC Sport, the capital club and the Spanish international had reached an agreement for a two-year contract. Free of any contract since his departure from Madrid, the best central defender of the last decade, now 35, lands in Paris. PSG formalized the signing of the Spaniard on Thursday. Ramos has initialed a four-year contract, until June 30, 2023. It is a huge blow that Paris Saint-Germain has achieved given the Sevillian’s service record with Real Madrid.
Legend of the Merengue club, with which he triumphed four times in the Champions League, and five times in La Liga, Sergio Ramos had formalized his departure from Real in mid-June. Very early on, his choice fell on Paris Saint-Germain, as much for the quality of life in Paris as the sporting challenge of winning the Champions League once again with a club that has dreamed of lifting it for so many years. . The 2010 world champion is coming out of a season disrupted by injury, with just 21 appearances.
Fierce competition in the defense axis
Not selected with La Roja for the Euro precisely because of this injury, Sergio Ramos may have revenge to lose both on himself and his former club, which is said to have left each other very angry . But Sergio Ramos will have a place to be made in Paris, because he arrives in a team where the Marquinhos-Kimpembe hinge is well established. The adoption of a plan with three central defenders by Mauricio Pochettino would allow these three to evolve together on the pitch next season.
Otherwise, the competition promises to be fierce in this sector of play, which also includes players like Abdou Diallo and Thilo Kehrer. At Paris Saint-Germain, Sergio Ramos will find former acquaintances of Real like Angel Di Maria and Keylor Navas, but also some Spanish compatriots, like Pablo Sarabia, Sergio Rico, Ander Herrera or Bernat. Although it is not clear that all these players will still be in Paris next season, as the club seeks to downsize.
