Mañana será un día especial, mañana diré adiós a otra etapa de mi vida, adiós al @PSG_espanol.
No sé en cuántos lugares uno puede sentirse como en casa pero, sin duda, el PSG, su afición y París han sido uno de ellos para mí. pic.twitter.com/961LqCYvQc

“Thank you for two special years in which I was able to play in every tournament and give my all. I will face new challenges, I will wear other colors, but first, and for the last time.”
PSG chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi issued a statement about Ramos’s departure, saying: “We would like to express our immense gratitude to Sergio Ramos for the two years he has spent with us. Sergio’s leadership, team spirit, and professionalism, combined with his experience at the highest level, make him a true football legend, and it was an honor to have him in Paris. Everyone at the club wishes him all the best.”
Was Sergio Ramos’ 2 years stint at PSG successful?
Sergio Ramos spent 16 years at Real Madrid, during which time he won five LaLiga titles and four Champions League titles. He then moved to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021 on a two-year deal.
During his two years with PSG, the 2010 World Cup winning defender made 57 appearances and helped the club win the Ligue 1 title both times. In addition to that, Ramos also won the 22/23 French Super Cup with Les Parisiens.
Despite these achievements, Sergio Ramos failed to fuel PSG’s desire to win a Champions League trophy. The club was knocked out of the UCL in the round of 16 in both years.
Which club could sign Sergio Ramos?
Not many clubs can afford to sign Sergio Ramos, despite him being a free agent, particularly due to the high salary that comes with his name. The 37-year-old defender’s experience can be useful to any team in the world, however.
Ramos has drawn interest from Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr. It is not a far cry that the 37-year-old will follow his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, in joining the middle-east.
Manchester United can particularly benefit from the services and experience of the veteran defender, where the veteran could also pair up with his former teammate Raphael Varane.
Nevertheless, whichever club he decides to join is sure to benefit from having such an experienced player with a winning mentality in their squad.
