Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain have officially announced the signing of former Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos.
PSG announced Ramos’ signing in a statement released on their official website on Thursday.
The Paris-based club confirmed that Ramos has joined on a two-year deal.
“Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce the arrival of Sergio Ramos to the squad.
“The Spanish central defender has signed a two-year contract and is tied to the club from the French capital until 30 June 2023.”
Ramos made his professional debut for Sevilla FC in the 2003-04 season after emerging from the club’s youth academy before joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2005.
Over the next 16 seasons with Los Merengues, Ramos became one of the very best defenders in the world, scoring 101 goals in 671 matches in the Spanish capital.
Captain of Real Madrid between 2015 and 2021, he helped his side win four UEFA Champions Leagues between 2014 and 2018 and five Liga crowns (2007, 2008, 2012, 2017 and 2020).
With the Spanish national team, Ramos won the FIFA World Cup in 2010 and two UEFA Euros in 2008 and 2012. A regular captain of La Roja, he is the most-capped Spanish player (and European player) of all time with 180 appearances for his national team (23 goals).
Ranked sixth in the 2017 Ballon d’Or France Football, he has received numerous individual honours for his performances.
He has twice been named UEFA Defender of the Year (2017 and 2018), and has featured no less than 11 times in the FIFA/FIFPro World XI between 2008 and 2020 and was also named in the FIFA World Cup 2010 Team of the Tournament.
