Paris Saint-Germain is determined to try to transfer Sergio Ramos for free, as his contract at Real Madrid ends today (Wednesday) on June 30.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez made it clear that Los Blancos wanted to keep their captain, but by the time he accepted their offer for a one-year contract extension, it was too late.
Now, according to L’Equipe, talks between Ramos’ camp and PSG have intensified in recent days, with the two sides not far off to reach an agreement.
However, as was the case with Real Madrid, Ramos’ desire for a two-year contract has been a hindrance.
PSG had originally offered the 35-year-old a one-year deal, but he is convinced he wants to sign a contract that will keep him at his next club for the next two seasons.
The Parisians are not the only ones interested in signing Ramos, although the Marca newspaper understands that there are two other clubs eager to secure the services of the free agent.
The French newspaper L’Equipe claims that an agreement between PSG and Ramos can be reached for a one-year agreement with the option for a second, with there being no issues regarding the financial side.
PSG sporting director Leonardo is determined to bring Ramos to the Parc des Princes, but he has made it clear to the Spaniard that he will not secure a place in the starting line-up as he will have to fight with Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos for a place on Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
Ramos will officially become a free agent today (June 30), but he already had his farewell ceremony at Real Madrid on June 17.
There have been plenty of rumors about Ramos’ future, but it seems increasingly likely that his next club will be PSG.
