Real is the past, and judging by the information from Spain, the future of Sergio Ramos is Paris Saint-Germain. A few hours after the official parting with the club where he spent 16 years and won 22 trophies during that time, Madrid's AS found out that the experienced defender could move to Ligue 1.
The news published by the influential daily states that the managers in charge of taking care of the career of the former Spanish national team player offered the client to the rich from Paris and that he finds this option extremely attractive.
In the past weeks, while negotiations with Real were still ongoing, it was mentioned that in case of failure, Sergio Ramos could go to Manchester United, Chelsea, or PSG. This is where the circle of serious candidates for his signature ends.
Bayern does not want to give him the salary he had so far, Manchester City is covered in defender positions, Juventus is no longer as financially powerful as before - especially since Cristiano Ronaldo is still on his payroll.
Barcelona is out of the question because of a long-standing rivalry with the Catalans, and Sevilla - who tried to bring him backdropped out just during today's address when Sergio said that, with all his love for the club in which he affirmed himself, he was not thinking about that option.
That is why Paris Saint-Germain is the first favorite to sign him. To make an already strong team even better. As states the reasons that suit Ramos and point out that Sergio would not have a problem adjusting, because his former teammates from the royal club (Kaylor Navas, Angel di Maria) and the Spanish national team (Pablo Sarabia, Sergio Rico, Ander Herrera) are at the Princes' Park.
In addition, Paris is only an hour away from Madrid by plane, so Ramos would be very close to his family, which is extremely important to him. In addition, if negotiations are reached and there is a salary on the table, it should be borne in mind that in France there is a law in force that allows foreign players benefits in the amount of 30 percent of net earnings, consequently, a former Real member could only save more than if, for example, he continues his career in England.
Spanish media wrote back in January that PSG is offering Sergio Ramos a salary of 15,000,000 euros per season. The player said that money is not as important to him as the duration of the contract. He insists on at least two years of cooperation.
Eventually, by 2024. One more thing, very important: since the departure of Thiago Silva to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain has been looking for a leader. On the field and in the locker room. No matter how good the footballers are, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe do not have that leadership. Sergio Ramos has.
