Paris Saint-Germain are closely monitoring Sergio Ramos’ situation at Real Madrid and could prise the defender away from Bernabeu with a bumper offer.
Sergio Ramos’ future at Real Madrid is once again up in the air! The experienced centre-back could become the next victim of the club’s policy that refuses to offer more than a year contract to players who are aged 30 or above. Ramos, whose contract expires at the end of the ongoing campaign, is facing a similar problem and PSG are ready to pounce on the opportunity, according to a report made by AS.
The French giants are very much aware of the contract situation revolving around the Spaniard. Although the player has been quite outspoken regarding his wish to retire at Real Madrid, he is hoping the club to offer him a two-year contract extension, which is causing a bit of discrepancy at the moment.
Real Madrid are willing to hand him a one-year contract with an option to extend the deal to a further year, but it would include clauses that will allow the club to terminate the extension in the event of a potential injury.
The Spanish giants have made only one exception to their policy when they offered Cristiano Ronaldo a three-year contract at the age of 31. Although Ramos is pretty much still in Zinedine Zidane’s plans and is considered as one of the best European defenders of all time, they have cited coronavirus as a reason behind their reluctance in offering a two-year deal.
PSG, meanwhile, are more than willing to offer a three-year contract to Ramos in the summer. It would see him earn a whopping €20 million-a-year, which is significantly higher than the €12 million he currently earns at Real Madrid.
It appears Les Parisiens have lacked the experience and composure at the back this season, following the departure of Thiago Silva to Chelsea in the summer. And with Marquinhos often being preferred in the holding midfield role, they are in desperate need of someone who can provide assurance in central defence alongside Presnel Kimpembe.
Ramos could be an ideal signing for PSG, as it would appeal to Thomas Tuchel tactically, while it could cause displeasure among the Real Madrid fanbase, which has already grown divided following the departures of Ronaldo and Iker Casillas. However, the Spaniard still remains an unlikely option at this point for PSG, who can make a pre-contract offer to the 34-year-old in January.
