Sergio Ramos’ verdict on Paul Pogba as defender set for PSG medical

Sergio Ramos is reportedly set to undergo a medical in Paris, ahead of completing a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Ramos is currently a free agent, following the expiration of his deal with Real Madrid, and ESPN are reporting that he has agreed a two-year contract with the Ligue 1 club.

PSG have already completed the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer from Liverpool and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and Inter Milan star Achraf Hakimi both look set to make the move to the Parc des Princes.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has also been linked with a move to PSG, with French outlet RMC Sport reporting that ‘discussions are taking place with his entourage’.

The report also states that Pogba is ‘more and more open’ to joining PSG, with his future at Old Trafford in doubt.

Pogba is out of contract with United next summer and he is yet to agree an extension, meaning the Red Devils could look to sell him this summer in order to avoid losing him for free.

“I have one year left on my contract, everyone knows that,” Pogba recently said. “There have been no concrete proposals for extensions. I’m still in Manchester.”

Should Paul Pogba leave Manchester United this summer? Comment below

Should PSG complete the signings of both Ramos and Pogba this summer, the veteran defender will surely relish the chance to play alongside someone he once called “one of the great players”.

Speaking back in 2019, Ramos told the Daily Express : “I think Real Madrid always has the door open for good players such as him.

“For me, Pogba is one of the great players. He is different and he has shown his value at Juventus and now Manchester United.

“I think he brings balance to a team. He has a great offensive influence and he has this amazing physique.”

Speaking after his exit from Madrid was confirmed, Ramos said: “I’d have liked to have said goodbye at our stadium but hats off to the club and the president.

“I couldn’t have wished for a better send-off. I’d have liked to have felt the fans’ support because there’s a bond that’s been there for many years and a link that nothing and nobody can take away.

“Ultimately, the circumstances are what they are and COVID-19 means that my departure is a bit different, but I feel privileged to have experienced this chapter, about the things I’ve won here and the affection I felt in what was such a special event.

“On occasions I’ve said in my close circle that I believe Real Madrid and Sergio Ramos to be the perfect married couple. These are life circumstances and things pan out as they have to.

“There are things we can’t change and you’ve just got to accept the present. I’ve got to look for another club, happiness and perform to my best, which is what excites me most, and try to add more silverware to my trophy haul.”
