LIVE Transfer Talk: PSG talks with Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos hit a snag

Ramos is set to leave Madrid when his contract expires at the end of June and the French outlet claims that the PSG hierarchy have only offered only a one-year deal to bring him to the Parc des Princes.

The centre-back had looked certain to be headed for Ligue 1, but it seems a move could be on thin ice as PSG sporting director Leonardo is unprepared to offer the two-year deal he wants.

The former Los Blancos captain turned 35 in March and featured in just 15 La Liga games due to a number of injury concerns. He was also left out of Spain’s squad for Euro 2020.

Ramos is assessing approaches he has received from PSG, Manchester City and Bayern Munich before taking a decision on his future, multiple sources have told ESPN. He has also been previously linked with moves to Manchester United and Manchester City, with City reportedly proposing a deal that would also include him playing at New York City FC. El Chiringuito also reports that Chelsea have made him an offer.
