Paris Saint-Germain have signed Sergio Ramos on a two-year deal after his contract at Real Madrid expired at the end of last season. Ramos spent 16 years at Real Madrid. During his time in the Spanish capital, he won four Champions Leagues, five La Ligas, and four Club World Cups.
“I am very happy to join Paris Saint-Germain,” Sergio Ramos said after completing his move to Paris Saint-Germain. “This is a big change in my life, a new challenge and it’s a day I will never forget. I am very proud to be a part of this ambitious project, to be a part of this squad with so many great players. Paris Saint-Germain is a club that has already proven itself at the highest level. I want to continue to grow and improve at Paris and help the team to win as many trophies as possible.”
Ramos revealed earlier this month that he wished to stay on at Real Madrid. He was initially offered a one-year extension but the Spanish defender was holding out for a two-year contract extension. When that did not arrive, he accepted the one-year extension but was told that that option had expired. Ramos recently underwent knee surgery which ruled him out of Euro 2020. It meant that this was the first Spanish squad at an international tournament that did not include a Real Madrid player.
“Today, Paris welcomes one of the greatest players of our era. We are delighted to announce that Sergio Ramos has joined us,” PSG chairman and chief executive Nasser Al-Khelaifi said. “Sergio is a complete footballer, one of the best defenders in the history of the game. He is a born competitor, a leader, and a true professional. His vast experience and ambition are in perfect synergy with those of the club.”
