Paris Saint-Germain have snapped up the services of Spain great Sergio Ramos. The Ligue 1 club announced on Thursday that they have completed a free transfer after Ramos left Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Sergio Ramos’s 16-year stint at Real Madrid came to an end last month as he left the La Liga side after failing to reach an agreement over a contract extension. Ramos was an influential figure at Real as he led them to 4 Champions League and 5 La Liga trophies.
The 35-year-old, who has signed a two-year contract, joins PSG after they finished second last season behind champions Lille in Ligue 1 and were knocked out in the Champions League semi-finals by Manchester City.
“Paris Saint-Germain is a club that has already proven itself at the highest level,” Ramos said.
“I want to continue to grow and improve at Paris and help the team to win as many trophies as possible.”
Ramos missed a large chunk of last season with injuries and was left out of Spain’s Euro 2020 squad but said when leaving Real that he was determined to keep proving himself at the top.
Speculation is rife that PSG are also close to signing Italy’s in-form goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer as the shot-stopper’s contract with AC Milan expired at the end of last Serie A season.
