Spanish defender and former Real Madrid player, Sergio Ramos, has penned a 2-year deal with French football giants, Paris St-Germain also known as PSG.
Ramos, who is now 35, was out of contract with Madrid in January 2021 and was reported to have considered offers from PSG, Manchester City and Bayern Munich with his family as his priority in making a decision in his move.
“I am very happy to join Paris Saint-Germain,” Ramos said. “This is a big change in my life, a new challenge and it’s a day I will never forget. I am very proud to be a part of this ambitious project, to be a part of this squad with so many great players.”
The defender had made it clear his desire to stay in Madrid, and wanted a two-year deal at the expiration of his contract with Real Madrid but saw negotiations fall through even after reportedly taking a pay-cut and agreeing to a one-year contract.
Ramos spent 16 years at Real Madrid, making 671 appearances for Madrid and scoring 101 goals while collecting five domestic titles and four Champions League trophies in his illustration playing time with the club.
