Constantly hampered by his injuries to both calves since his arrival at Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Sergio Ramos finally seems healed and ready to play his first full season in the capital. With the World Cup in sight!
What if it was Ramos, PSG’s best “rookie” this summer?
Why didn’t Paris Saint-Germain push harder to snatch Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan?
Officially, because the Nerazzurri asked too much for the last year of the central defender’s contract, namely at least 70 million euros. Unofficially, Parisian decision makers may have decided to trust Sergio Ramos, while Presnel Kimpembe should not leave in the end. Because the Spaniard, finally rid of his worries in both calves, finally seems ready to achieve a full season.
Neymar-Mbapp, Ramos played a role of appeasement
Last summer, after signing a free contract from Real Madrid, he was quickly overtaken by his injuries, which did not allow him to play more than 13 games with his new club.

A player certainly confirmed, but who will obviously have the vocation to blow the holders. Because Ramos seems well on his way not to come out of the eleven, he whose leadership and speaking out are very much appreciated by the coach and his staff. In the confusion between Kylian Mbapp and Neymar, for example, he played a role of appeasement.
Ramos dreams of C1… and the World Cup
As revealed by Le Parisien, the Sville-trained player has slipped words of appeasement to calm the beginnings of an ego quarrel in the locker room, after the victory against Montpellier (5-2). Ramos, who imposes a natural respect despite the absence of an armband on his shoulder, is aware that the team will have to be united to achieve the eternal objective, namely to lift the Champions League. But before that, the native of Camas, who turned 36 last March, dreams of winning another trophy…
And it’s obviously not the Coupe de France: absent during the last Euro, the central defender is very keen to be called by Luis Enrique to compete in the World Cup in Qatar this winter, still according to Le Parisien. According to our colleagues, he spent some kind of agreement with the Spanish coach, who promised him that the doors of La Roja would reopen thanks to his renewed physical condition. For now, Ramos is keeping his end of the bargain. Regarding Luis Enrique, answer in a few weeks…
