Official: Sergio Ramos Joins PSG

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of Sergio Ramos on a free, following the expiration of his contract at Real Madrid.

The 35-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at the Parc des Princes, where he will reunite with former Real Madrid teammates Keylor Navas, Angel Di Maria and Achraf Hakimi, as well as compatriots Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico, Pablo Sarabia and Ander Herrera.

Ramos will wear the No.4 shirt for PSG and he becomes their third major signing of the summer, following the arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum on a free and Achraf for 60 million euros plus nine million euros in add-ons.

The four-time Champions League winner's experience will be vital as PSG go in search of their first-ever European Cup, with the hope being that Ramos, coupled with the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, could help push the French giants over the line in Europe's premier club competition.

Wednesday saw Ramos arrive in Paris to much fanfare, with supporters around France interested to see how the legendary defender performs following his exit from Real Madrid, where he has spent the last 16 years.

Sergio Ramos is a PSG player

Negotiations between Ramos' camp and PSG accelerated in the last week of June, as MARCA reported. Then, an agreement was reached for a two-year contract - something Real Madrid were not willing to offer their captain.

Ramos will therefore be 37 years old come the end of his contract, while his arrival will no doubt go down well with Neymar and Mbappe, with PSG still hoping to convince the latter to sign a new deal and remain in the French capital.

After missing out on Spain's squad for Euro 2020 and the Olympics, Ramos had to wait patiently in Madrid while his move to PSG was finalised. Ultimately, he placed an emphasis on remaining at the highest level, so a move to the Parc des Princes matches his ambitions.

Ramos has been training hard this summer as he looks to make an immediate impression at his new club, and we now know that he will be working under Mauricio Pochettino, someone who was often linked with taking charge at Real Madrid but who will now be able to work with the 2010 World Cup winner in Paris.
