PSG to sell Sergio Ramos?

Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to part ways with Sergio Ramos, despite the former Real Madrid star only joining the club in July, and his replacement may already have been identified too.

PSG had an eventful transfer window ahead of the 2021/22 season, during which they secured the signatures of Los Blancos and Barcelona's respective captains, Ramos and Lionel Messi, in a bid to reclaim the Ligue 1 title.

While most of the new signings have already begun forcing their way into Les Parisiens' starting XI, however, Ramos remains the only new face that is yet to make his debut for the club, with a number of injury issues having forced him to stay on the sidelines.

Spanish outlet El Nacional has now reported that the PSG hierarchy is "starting to get fed up with him", and are now considering selling him next year.

The Spain international's contract with the French club is only set to expire in 2023, but there are reportedly already concerns that the injury problems will only become more prevalent, with the 35-year-old in the latter stages of his career.

Per Cadena SER, the centre-back's road to recovery "is not going well, it is not going badly either, but it is not going well. It is going slowly", leaving Mauricio Pochettino unsure of when the veteran will return to competitive action.

It is further claimed that a key factor in the emergence of a potential exit for Ramos is Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger, whose contract in London is set to expire at the end of this campaign.

Les Parisiens president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is said to have set his sights on the Germany defender, who has reportedly rejected a contract offer worth €8.5 million (R147 million) a season from the Blues to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Rudiger is believed to want closer to €12 million (R208 million) a year, an amount PSG already pay for Ramos' services, according to El Nacional.
