Former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is set to undergo a medical before signing for Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year contract shortly after leaving Los Blancos this summer.
The 35-year-old Spaniard is one of three signings that the Ligue 1 giants are looking to complete this summer after agreeing transfers for full-back Achraf Hakimi and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Ramos spent close to two decades at Real Madrid, 16 years precisely, played 671 games, won 5 La Liga titles and 4 European Cups but failed to agree with president Florentino Perez for the extension of his deal at the club.
It can be recalled that he missed most of the second half of last season due to a series of muscle injuries as well as a knee problem that required surgery.
In 2021, he has played just 7 games for Real Madrid and Spain combined. Therefore, it came as a little shock when he was excluded from the Sapin squad for the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament. Regardless, PSG believe in his fitness levels.
Donnarumma is also a free agent after the expiration of his contract with AC Milan and he has agreed a deal with PSG until 2026. Meanwhile, he’s representing Italy in Euros and will be between the sticks when they face Spain in the semifinals on Tuesday for a place in the final.
The Ligue 1 giants are also paying an initial €60m (£51.3m) to Inter Milan for Achraf Hakimi plus €10m in add-ons. He’s also contracted to the club until 2026.
The 22-year-old Morocco international progressed through the ranks at Real Madrid and is one of the players leaving the title-winning Inter Milan side to enhance the club’s financial stability.
