It is difficult to get used to, but Sergio Ramos is a PSG player. He will remain a PSG player until his contract runs out in 2023. The French club have reinforced their squad with formidable signings this summer: Achraf Hakimi, Donnarumma, and of course Ramos himself. The rumors are rife with a potential move for Paul Pogba as well. The former Real Madrid captain is excited to begin working with his new team and had a message for Kylian Mbappe when giving an interview to various Spanish outlets.

“I want Mbappe in my team. Everyone is free to make their own decision. We are a big club with a magnificent project.All great players must go through Real Madrid at some point in their career, but right now I want him at my side. I personally want to play with the best in the world, and Mbappe is among the best. I also have a great desire to play with Neymar, whom I have played against many times when he played for Barcelona,” Sergio Ramos explained.

Asked what would happen if he were to play against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, Ramos was respectful of his old club. “Real Madrid is the best club in history. I would never celebrate a goal against Madrid. Above all, it is in my heart and they deserve my respect. I would not celebrate it, not even a win, because they would not deserve it, also because of the fans,” he emphasized.

Finally Ramos was asked about how he feels about the decision to join PSG and whether Real Madrid did enough to keep him. “I am very happy with the step I have taken. Looking back is wrong. I am adventurous, and leaving a comfort zone is always important.
