Sergio Ramos ‘informs Real Madrid “PSG have told me they will make a great team with me and Lionel Messi”‘ in a summit with president Florentino Perez with club captain listening to offers after rejecting a new deal
- Real Madrid have offered Sergio Ramos a new deal through until June 2023
- He is yet to sign and is reported to be holding out for the same wage agreement
- Ramos is out of contract in June and PSG are said to be keen to sign him on a free
- Defender has told the club that PSG want to sign both him and Lionel Messi
Sergio Ramos has ‘warned Real Madrid that Paris Saint-Germain are keen to create a super-team by signing him and Lionel Messi as he stalls on signing a new contract’.
Real Madrid are waiting with bated breath to see whether their legendary captain will extend his deal at the Bernabeu, with a deal on the table for him to sign. As it stands, the 34-year-old centre back – still a vital part of Zinedine Zidane’s starting XI – is out of contract in the summer, and he can currently speak to other clubs about a deal starting in June.
And one other club interested in stealing him away from Spain is PSG, who have reportedly told Ramos they want to add him and Messi to their already star-studded team with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Reports from Josep Pedrerol on Spanish programme El Larguero state that Ramos had a cordial meeting with Real president Florentino Perez before the Elche game, in which he said ‘I am not accepting the proposal you have made to me…and from now on I will listen to offers.’
Incredibly, it is claimed Ramos then went on to say: ‘Someone from PSG has told me that they are going to create a great team with me and [Lionel] Messi.’
Real Madrid have put an offer on the table to take Ramos through until the summer of 2023, when he would be 37, but multiple reports in Spain claim that talks have reached a complete stalemate.
The front page of Mundo Deportivo carries the headline ‘A Real mess’, detailing that Zidane and the club’s hierarchy are waiting to hear back from Ramos about whether he wants to sign the deal.

Meanwhile, Deportes Cuatro report that for weeks there had been a ‘total agreement’ over Ramos’ new deal, but now money has become an issue.
While Madrid believe that Ramos should take a substantial cut due to the current climate and the coronavirus pandemic, the player wants to continue with the same salary agreement.
Additionally, Mundo report that Real Madrid are so worried about losing their captain and starting centre back that they are already looking at both Pau Torres and David Alaba as potential replacements in the summer.
Torres is Ramos’ Spain team-mate and has shone at Villarreal, and there is a belief in Spain that he is the natural heir to the centre back throne at the Bernabeu.

Alaba, meanwhile, has been linked with both Barcelona and Real Madrid after an incredible decade at Bayern Munich.
Although there are significant issues off the pitch with their captain’s renewal – and the fact that both Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez are nearing the end of their deals – Real’s form on the pitch has certainly not been affected.
Los Blancos have won seven of their last eight games in all competitions, to climb back up towards the top of the LaLiga table.
They are, though, still two points behind their city rivals Atletico, who also have two games in hand and are becoming favourites for the title with Barcelona legend Luis Suarez leading the line.
