Sergio Ramos shouldn’t be concerned for his future after failing to get a new contract from La Liga giants Real Madrid. According to multiple reports, Ramos has already been approached by several high-profile European clubs, including Bayern Munich, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain.
Ramos will be a free agent this summer, and any club that signs him won’t have to pay a fee. This, alongside his stature in the game as arguably one of the best defenders of all-time, caused almost all top teams to at least inquire about his interest.
Still, it is believed that Ramos will take his time to look into his options before making a final decision. Reportedly, the wishes of his family are going to play an important role in picking his next destination.
So far, Man City is believed to be a favorite as they constructed a tempting offer for the 35-year-old star. The Premier League powerhouse is willing to offer Ramos a two-year deal plus an option for another year or a move to MLS, where he would play for their affiliate club New York City FC.
PSG is also in a good position, while Bayern is considered to have the weakest likelihood of signing him. Ramos believes that the language barrier and stark differences in soccer mentality could play a negative role in his accommodation in Germany.
Sergio Ramos spent most of his professional career with Real Madrid, signing with the club in 2005 from his childhood side Sevilla. He went on to make 671 appearances for Real, which places him on No. 4 in the club’s history while also scoring 101 goals despite playing a center back.
Ramos won 22 trophies with Real, including four UEFA Champions Leagues and five La Liga titles. He also has FIFA World Cup and two UEFA European Championship trophies with Spain’s national team.
