Manchester City and Everton both keen on Arsenal target White

PSG and Ramos in advanced talks

Sergio Ramos has entered ‘advanced negotiations’ with Paris Saint-Germain regarding a free transfer this summer.

The defender is officially a free agent after his Real Madrid contract expired on Wednesday. Therefore, PSG have stepped up their efforts to sign him. A final decision is expected in the coming days.

Despite Ramos wanting a two-year deal, PSG have allegedly offered him a one-year contract with an option for a second year. The 35-year-old would also have to accept a pay cut to join the Parisians. [ESPN]
