Paris Saint-Germain have been left red-faced after their website published a story confirming the signing of Sergio Ramos before the deal has been made official.

The Spaniard is currently a free agent after leaving Real Madrid after a 16-year career in the Spanish capital.

The World Cup winner enjoyed huge success in his time at Santiago Bernabeu, winning five La Liga titles and the Champions League on four occasions.

He is a legendary figure at the club, but he would eventually leave in fairly acrimonious circumstances.

With Ramos' contract set to expire in June, both the player and Real Madrid were locked in talks throughout the season over a renewal.

Ramos wanted a two-year deal, while the club were only willing to offer a one-year deal due to his age.

The Spaniard would eventually accept the one-year deal, only for Real Madrid to say his decision came too late, which led to his announced departure.

He had previously been linked with Manchester United but, according to reports from France, it is Paris Saint-Germain who have won the race for his signature.

The deal as apparently done, as a now-deleted article confirmed that Ramos will be wearing the number four kit, according to Goal.

What did the article say?

"This number four, I appreciate it a lot out of superstition, because I had it from the start of my career, and then it accompanied me throughout my life, continued me, brought good luck, and a lot of victories," Ramos said.

"Now number four is part of me as a person and as a professional. For me, it's a privilege to be able to wear this number in such a great team, Paris Saint-Germain. So it will necessarily be very special to be able to wear my number here in Paris."

FootballTransfers previously detailed how the PSG dressing room was split over the acquisition of Ramos.

Defenders Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe are reportedly unhappy that their playing time may decrease.

However, Ramos' former Real Madrid team-mates Angel Di Maria and Keylor Navas are apparently looking forward to reuniting with the Spaniard.
