Sergio Ramos has signed for French giants Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer after his contract at Real Madrid expired this summer.

The Spanish legend left Real Madrid at the end of June, when the club decided not to renew his contract.

Ramos has signed a two-year deal at PSG that will see him stay at the club until 2023, when he will be 37-years-old.

The centre-back was left out of Spain's European Championship squad due to an ongoing injury, but it is expected that he will be fit to join up with his new side once the tournament is over.

Ramos missed large chunks of 2020/21 through various injuries, playing just 15 league games and 21 in total last season.

However, PSG feel his experience and know-how of winning trophies is vital in their bid to finally win the Champions League for the first time.

Alongside Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma is also expected to be announced as a new signing in the coming days.

Ramos at Real Madrid

Ramos joined Real Madrid back in 2005 and played 671 games for the club, winning five league titles and four Champions League trophies along the way.

He was a fundamental part of 'La Decima', and played a crucial role in helping the club win three Champions League's in a row between 2016 and 2018.

Once talisman Cristiano Ronaldo left the club, he, alongside Karim Benzema, stepped up massively, and his absence was noticeably felt last season.

In total, he scored over 100 goals for the club, which is an incredible feat for a centre-half.

He reportedly left the club on good terms, and with no bad blood between him and Florentino Perez, and he will join up with his new teammates in the coming days.
