Sergio Ramos targeting a FIFTH Champions League title at PSG as he insists they are ‘very close’ to finally ending their wait for European glory… after joining from Real Madrid
- Sergio Ramos has signed for Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Real Madrid
- Ramos left as a free agent and a host of clubs from across Europe swooped in
- PSG have never won the Champions League but he thinks that will change
Sergio Ramos believes he has a very good chance of winning the Champions League with Paris Saint-Germain.
Ramos departed Real Madrid after his contract was allowed to run down, and a host of elite clubs from across Europe unsurprisingly tried to snap up the free agent.
The veteran centre-back has signed a two-year deal at the Parc des Princes, and he is said to have viewed the offer from PSG as one he simply could not rebuff.

‘What I noticed the most about this club is its strength,’ he told PSG TV when explaining his decision to join the French giants.
‘The thirst for winning that the players have. They want to come to a club like this.
‘They have already played in the Champions League final, they are very close to being able to win it and that is something that attracts me. It can only be a perfect marriage.
‘If I can contribute to it, that would be wonderful for me. It is a dream to think about win my fifth Champions League and the first for our club.’

He left the Bernabeu after failing to agree fresh terms. Madrid were unwilling to meet his request for a two-year deal, as they were only open to a one-year extension.
This has long since been club policy, and Madrid also reportedly wanted Ramos to agree to a wage cut to his lucrative £10m per season earnings.
But PSG were open to his desired contract, and Ramos will bank €12m (£10.3m) a season, with bonuses taking his overall salary up to €15m (£13m).
