Continental glory continues to elude the Parisian club, but a new and distinguished squad member expects that situation to change soon.

Sergio Ramos insists his new club Paris Saint-Germain are “very close to” winning their first-ever Champions League trophy.

Ramos ended his nearly two-decade-long association with Real Madrid last month, dropping into free agency after letting his contract with the club run down.

The legendary defender, who had offers from a couple of Premier League elites on his table, was picked up by PSG on a two-year deal reportedly worth €20 million.

Having tasted Champions League success multiple times during his stay at Santiago Bernabeu, the 35-year-old now intends to help his new teammates taste the same.

“What I noticed the most about this club is its strength,” Ramos told PSG TV. “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.”
