After nearly two decades of donning the famous white shirt, the iconic center-back sets foot outside of Spain in search of a new challenge.

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of “one of the best defenders in the history of the game” Sergio Ramos.

PSG have secured the signature of Ramos on a two-year contract after picking him up on a free transfer.

The 35-year-old left Real Madrid with a plethora of winners’ medals earlier this summer after the two parties failed to find a common ground in the contract extension negotiations.

He will now look to further expand his trophy collection which at present includes five La Liga and four Champions League titles.

PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi told the club’s official website: “Today, Paris welcomes one of the greatest players of our era. We are delighted to announce that Sergio Ramos has joined us.

“Sergio is a complete footballer, one of the best defenders in the history of the game. He is a born competitor, a leader and a true professional.”

Ramos said of his move: “I am very happy to join Paris Saint-Germain.

“This is a big change in my life, a new challenge and it’s a day I will never forget. 

“I am very proud to be a part of this ambitious project, to be a part of this squad with so many great players. 

“Paris Saint-Germain is a club that has already proven itself at the highest level. I want to continue to grow and improve at Paris and help the team to win as many trophies as possible.”

Ramos becomes PSG’s third transfer of this summer after Georginio Wijnaldum and Achraf Hakimi.
