The Staggering Fee PSG Would Need To Pay If Sergio Ramos' Contract Is Terminated
| Last updated
Ramos arrived in the French capital in the summer on a free transfer, but the Spaniard has not made his official debut for PSG.
The 35-year-old defender, who missed Spain’s Euro 2020 campaign in the summer, has been sidelined with a calf injury he picked up in July.
Concerns over Ramos’ recent string of injuries has led to PSG considering the potential termination of his contract, according to Le Parisien.
The French newspaper claims that the Ligue 1 club believe that signing the former Los Blancos star might have been a mistake and are weighing up their options.
However, PSG would be forced to make a huge payout thanks to Ramos’ two-year deal.
According to reports, Ramos inked a contract that would earn him a whopping £20m (€24m) ahead of his contract expiring in 2023.
PSG would need to come to an agreement with Ramos ahead of ending his contract, but the Spain international could walk away with a hefty payday.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum and Lionel Messi all arrived on a free transfer in the summer alongside Ramos.
Alongside the aforementioned quartet, PSG snapped up the highly rated Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan for a fee believed to be around £54m.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed last month that Ramos had not started training with his squad amid recovering from his injury.
“Unfortunately, Ramos hasn't started training with the squad yet,” he told Radio Marca.
“He is close, though. We hope that it will be as soon as possible. We're happy with how he is progressing.
“He's a great champion and nobody can doubt his competitive instinct and footballing ability.
“Things aren't going well for him, but he can deal with it.”
PSG, who are currently top of Ligue 1, will return to action on Wednesday when they travel to the Red Bull Arena for their Champions League clash with RB Leipzig.
