The Spanish defender is said to be on his way to joining the capital club, but this recruitment would divide within the locker room.
Paris Saint-Germain is very active at the start of the transfer market. After announcing the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum, the capital club are working on several files and are close to the goal in three major files. The first and not the least leads to Achraf Hakimi. The right side should join PSG very soon. The second is none other than Gianluigi Donnarumma. Free, the Italian porter has passed his medical examination and his signature should be formalized shortly.
Rumors, agreement reached between PSG and Sergio Ramos
And finally, the latest, and perhaps the most flashy: the recruitment of Sergio Ramos. According to information from RMC Sport, the Spanish defender has agreed to a two-year contract with the vice-champions of France. His brother was in the French capital this Thursday to complete the final details of this deal. The former Real Madrid captain would arrive in Paris in the coming days to undergo his medical examination and initial his contract. He would thus open a new chapter in his career, after 15 years of experience with the Merengue.
If the signing of Sergio Ramos would be a big blow for Paris Saint-Germain either from a marketing point of view, but also from a sporting point of view, it could cause problems as well. Of course, the signing of the 2010 world champion is a huge sign sent to the competition, but also internally, to Kylian Mbappé for example, who has kept asking for reinforcements to have a competitive team next season.
Not to miss
A problematic salary?
However, according to information from Le Parisien, not everyone in the PSG locker room would welcome the arrival of Sergio Ramos. The daily advances in particular that this transfer has “angered some players” in the locker room of PSG. The first concerned is none other than Presnel Kimpembe. The central defender trained at the club, indisputable holder in central hinge, will be the first to bear the brunt of the recruitment of the Spanish international.
Indeed, his arrival at PSG could call into question the status of the French international. Presnel Kimpembe, who had competed with Marquinhos and Thiago Silva in previous seasons, had seen his patience rewarded and had become the indisputable holder of the post. With Sergio Ramos in his paws, he can fear for his place, unless Mauricio Pochettino decides to line up a three-way defense, a scenario that cannot be ruled out.
PSG, Kylian Mbappé has made his decision for his future!
Another major problem is the club’s sports policy. Last summer, PSG let Thiago Silva go, the latter becoming too old and too expensive. However, Sergio Ramos at 35 and will cost even more than the former PSG captain. Here too, the policy of the leaders is surprising, especially as many wonder about the physical condition of the Spaniard and his ability to chain matches after a season truncated by injuries.
Finally, the last point mentioned by Le Parisien is purely financial. The Covid-19 pandemic has left traces in the finances of all clubs, including PSG. The financial aspect of every transaction will matter, including that of Sergio Ramos, even if he arrives free. The Spaniard arrives with a salary of 15 million euros which risks threatening the balance in the locker room according to the French daily. Sergio Ramos has not yet signed for PSG and despite all the positive aspects of his recruitment, his signing is already causing a lot of talk.
