Sergio Ramos will leave Real Madrid this summer after 16 years at the Bernabeu.
A stunning career that saw him win five La Liga titles, four Champions League titles and countless domestic titles in the Spanish capital will come to an end when his contract expires at the end of the month and talk has already begun about where he will be playing his football next season.
It seems as though the bookies have made their mind up on his next destination though, despite Ramos himself stating that he didn’t know where he’d be playing yet in the upcoming campaign.
According to Oddschecker, Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to sign the 180-cap Spanish international. At best price 11/10 with William Hill, Ramos is expected to join Mauricio Pochettino and former Real Madrid teammate Angel Di Maria in the French capital.
PSG missed out on the Ligue 1 title to Lille on the final day of last season and are looking to bolster their squad to get their title back, while also pushing to be successful in Europe once again after reaching the final in 2020 before a semi-final exit this season.
Pushing them for his signature though are Manchester United, who are the second favourites for his signature. According to reports they could look to make a move for the Real Madrid skipper on a free transfer and put the money towards other areas of the squad, although they are prioritising his teammate Raphael Varane after making a £50million bid for him.
Manchester City are still expected to be in the race according to the bookies, although we revealed that the club have no interest in pursuing a deal for him.
Ramos’ first club Sevilla have also been linked with a move for the legendary defender, although Ramos admitted in his farewell press conference that they aren’t an option for his return while he also declared it “impossible” to see himself at Barcelona.
Juventus and Chelsea are also priced up as potential destinations but are both long shots and seem unlikely.
It seems as though it’s between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United for his signature currently, with both teams desperate to improve their defensive options and having the funds to make a deal happen. He’s certainly not a priority for the Premier League side, but the bookies have him as an option nonetheless.
