After rejecting £280,000-a-week Arsenal contract in July, player could now be released
Back in July, Sergio Ramos signed a two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain, rejecting a contract offer worth £280,000-a-week from Arsenal.
That was according to Goal, who revealed that Ramos opted to follow his 16-year spell at Real Madrid with a new experience in Paris, not Arsenal.
Since making that decision, things haven’t exactly gone to plan for the Spaniard, and PSG could now make a big decision.
What’s the story?
Well, according to Le Parisien, PSG could now terminate the 35-year-old’s contract, as he’s yet to actually play a single game.
Ramos has struggled with injuries at the Parc des Princes, and was also struggling at Real Madrid earlier in 2021.
As a result, he has played just six competitive games this calendar year.
Those at PSG are now starting to realise they may have made a mistake in glossing over the severity of his injury.
Arsenal dodged a bullet with Sergio Ramos
Just imagine the uproar if this situation was going on at Arsenal.
Supporters would be furious with Edu for bringing a 35-year-old to the Emirates Stadium on a massive salary, and for nothing in return.
Luckily, Arsenal escaped after being rejected by the World Cup winner.
It would’ve been a catastrophic move, to say the least.
This is speculative, although that huge salary may have prevented Arsenal from doing other deals in the transfer market.
Now, the Gunners are far better off with the impressive duo of Ben White and Gabriel Magalhães, as Ramos remains on the sidelines in Paris.
