Sergio Ramos looks to be heading towards Paris to join up with PSG for the next chapter of his career after leaving Real Madrid.
According to Spanish journalist Andre Onrubia Ramos, Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos could be heading towards a switch to Paris Saint-Germain in the coming days despite interest from Manchester United and Manchester City. The Spain and Real Madrid great will be looking for a new challenge, but it is a little beyond just football for him.
Sergio Ramos tiene bastantes probabilidades de jugar en el PSG la próxima temporada. El central tiene ofertas de los dos clubes de Manchester, pero económicamente es superior la del conjunto parisino. Además, París le atrae bastante como ciudad.

It is hard to say that Sergio Ramos’ best days are behind him, as the energetic defender has proved he still is a top player. After 15 years of football in the Spanish capital, Ramos has left Real Madrid, where he captained the side to numerous trophies.
Naturally, when a player of Ramos’ calibre becomes available, there will be some top clubs chasing such a signing. As expected, Manchester City and Manchester United were vying for his signature, but there are reportedly others in the race as well, notably Paris Saint-Germain.
Journalist Andre Onrubia Ramos has suggested via his Twitter feed that the defender is close to joining PSG, not only for the footballing project but for experiencing living in Paris. Ramos is not believed to be angling the last payday before retirement, as the defender believes he has plenty more to give in football.
However, the lure of Paris and the experience of playing for PSG was reportedly too good to decline. The duration of his contract and the wages he will as part of his PSG contract remain unclear, but it is understood that all parties concerned are happy with what’s on offer.
Incidentally, both Manchester United and Manchester City offered deals that eclipsed the pay-package PSG have put together. But, reportedly for Ramos, Paris had an appeal which Manchester lacked. In terms of football, though, the Premier League remains far more challenging than Ligue-1.
Will Ramos end up in Paris and help PSG to the elusive Champions League crown they have been chasing all these years? Or will the veteran defender go there looking for the last payday before hanging up his boots in what may be his final few years as a player? It all remains to be seen.
