The Blancos captain’s future is the subject of much debate heading into the summer transfer window, with his current deal at Real Madrid set to expire at the end of June.
PSG want to improve in all positions
Mauricio Pochettino has expressed the rumours linking Sergio Ramos with a transfer to PSG, noting “we want to improve in all positions.” The Blancos captain’s future is the subject of much debate heading into the summer transfer window, with his current deal at Real Madrid set to expire at the end of June. However, the Blancos have yet to reach an agreement with their club captain for an extension, and PSG are one of several clubs reportedly following the situation closely. Pochettino refused to confirm whether the French champions will try to bring Ramos but did concede that they will be in the market for quality reinforcements after a tumultuous 2020-21 campaign. “Sergio Ramos to PSG? I’m not going to answer because everything could be misinterpreted. Sergio is a Real Madrid player,” the PSG coach told reporters.
Zidane wants Ramos to stay at Madrid
“But I can say that, like any squad, we want to improve in all positions.” Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has said he wants Ramos to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu in the long term, believing that the 35-year-old can play at the top level for at least another five years. However, the Frenchman was unable to give any news of a possible renewal for the Spaniard in March, as he told the media: “I want to be honest and have to say I don’t know what will happen to him. We want him to stay here. He will always be an important player, and I want him to stay here; that’s what I will say as a coach.” Club president Florentino Perez was equally vague when asked about Ramos during an interview in April.
“I love Sergio Ramos, but we have a terrible financial situation at Real Madrid,” he said. “Nobody invests money into this club. Will he leave the club? I didn’t say that; a lot can happen.”
