French club Paris Saint-Germain [PSG] has announced the signing of former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos who walked away from the Spanish capital as a free agent.
Ramos has signed a two-year contract, tying him to the French club till 2023. The confirmation by PSG gives credence to Citizens Alert’s report of July 2, where we reported that the defender had agreed to a two-year deal after intense negotiations between the club and the player’s agent and brother Rene Ramos.
PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi described the defender as a “complete footballer,” and further said he was “proud to see him in PSG’s jersey.”
Sergio Ramos joined Real Madrid from Sevilla in 2005 before going on to spend 16 years at the club, featuring 671 times and scoring 101 goals in the process. Ramos is also the player with the highest red cards in Madrid’s history.
The centre-back who is known for his controversies and most times violent tackles had wanted to extend his ties with Real Madrid by renewing his contract, but the capital club jettisoned the idea, forcing the player to move to France after ignoring offers from Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich.
