Sergio Ramos has yet to debut for PSG since moving from Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos left Real Madrid for PSG in the summer in a much-publicised Bosman transfer.

It ended a 16-year association with Los Blancos for Ramos after a difficult final season saw the Spanish international captain struggle with fitness and form.

The move to Paris was considered at the time a fresh challenge for the player and a defensive problem fixed for the French giants as they pushed to reclaim their Ligue 1 title and finally go all the way in the Champions League.

And with the addition of Barcelona rival Lionel Messi to the PSG team, fans of European football were eager to see the old adversaries play in the same side.

It hasn't quite worked out so far for either player with Messi struggling to find the form that saw him considered one of the greatest ever players to play the game.

And Ramos hasn't even been seen in a PSG shirt with onlookers speculating he may be about to call time on his illustrious playing career.

Reports from France last week stated that Ramos could retire due to persistent injury problems.

Le Parisien claimed this week that PSG were open to cancelling the two-year contract Ramos signed upon his arrival in Paris, even though it would cost them £20m.

But now his brother has responded to these claims in an attempt to end the speculation.

Rene Ramos, who is his brother and agent, has rubbished those rumours. He told El Mundo: "Sergio Ramos is not planning to retire or break his contract.

“There is no doubt about Sergio. It's a physical problem, he will play when he can.”

The club's sporting director also hit out at the foreign media, blaming them for stirring trouble. After PSG's 2-1 win over Lille, Leonardo said: "We know Ramos has had an injury.

"The Spanish press are playing games, we all knew he had a problem. We know what's happening here."

Ramos is scheduled to return to training with PSG next week and could be due to make his debut against Nantes on November 20.
