Why Sergio Ramos could stay at PSG

Sergio Ramos’ contract at PSG expires in June. The serious injury suffered by Presnel Kimpembe in PSG’s Ligue 1 match against Marseille last Sunday at the Vélodrome could, however, see Ramos stay at the club.

The 27-year-old French centre-back ruptured his Achilles heel and will be out until the autumn at least. The worst-case scenario, depending on his progress, could see him remain on the sidelines until the end of the year. This could lead to PSG extending the 36-year-old’s deal in Paris.

Luis Campos, the club’s sporting adviser, has given no clues about Ramos’ future. In the summer, PSG will bring in Milan Skriniar and his signing was seen as a possible farewell to Ramos. However, Kimpembe’s injury puts the club in a different position than what he might have imagined a week ago. Negotiations have not, however, intensified and do not look set to do so until the second leg against Bayern Munich is decided, according to AS.

This season, the former Real Madrid captain has put the injuries that prevented him from performing consistently last term to one side. He had made 33 appearances in all competitions, 22 in Ligue 1, and established himself as a leader in the club’s dressing room. The next few months look set to be decisive in deciding the future of Sergio Ramos.
