The value of Ramos is recognized
Having achieved a lot of success with his old team Real Madrid, Ramos came to PSG in 2021 when he was in the “afternoon” age in the world of players. Signing only a 2-year contract with Ramos, the PSG leader from the beginning did not dare to risk a long-term cooperation with the Spanish defender.
This is also understandable, because Ramos is no longer in a prolific stage. In his current position, his sudden decline in form because of age can happen at any time.
In fact, even in his first season in France, Ramos made the host team stand still. Because of frequent trouble with injuries, the player born in 1986 played only 13 games throughout the season.
With what happened, the faith that PSG had in Ramos was of course significantly reduced. However, they now feel reassured as the veteran defender shows more and more that he is still worth using. If last season Ramos almost did not contribute anything to PSG, this season, his playing frequency has increased significantly. The proof is that from the beginning of the tournament, Ramos had 39 matches, including 36 matches in the beginning.
Ramos plays so much, proving that he is being trusted by the host team. When the value of Ramos is recognized, it is understandable that the leaders of the Parc des Princes team seriously consider extending his contract.
Had to reduce salary to stay
To score points with the leader, Ramos has really made great efforts in the past time. Even if PSG lost to Bayern Munich with a total score of 0-3 after two matches in the 1/8 round of the Champions League, he still deserves praise for playing well.
That’s professionally, but in the dressing room Ramos also knows how to build credibility. He has a voice full of weight and still shows class in big matches. Therefore, PSG has a reason to extend the tie with him for at least 1 year.
In addition, the fact that central defender Presnel Kimpembe suffered a serious injury (to be out of action until November) is also a motivation for PSG to negotiate an extension with Ramos. Not to mention, the midfielder that the Paris team is targeting is Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan) who has had back surgery. Skriniar’s unstable health made PSG ponder whether to continue to care about the Slovakia player or not.
In short, the leadership of PSG has changed the view of Ramos in a positive direction. However, in order to extend the contract, the player who has won 4 Champions League titles with Real Madrid must also accept to sacrifice his own interests.
Specifically, he had to reduce his salary to share the financial burden with PSG. It should be known that PSG is in need of narrowing the salary fund because it has been warned by UEFA for violating the financial fair play law. Ramos is currently pocketing 800,000 euros/month regularly. This is not a small number for players who do not have many years of use. PSG understand this, so they do not accept Ramos to keep his income just to try to keep him.
Ramos can follow Ronaldo to Saudi Arabia to play football
If he leaves PSG, Ramos may move to play in Saudi Arabia, with the next stop being Al Hilal. According to the Spanish media, Al Hilal is willing to pay Ramos a salary of up to 30 million euros per year if the parties cooperate. In case Ramos accepts, he will have the opportunity to face Cristiano Ronaldo, a teammate who has been with him for many years at Real Madrid. Currently CR7 is playing in Saudi Arabia for Al Nassr.
