After getting their hands on Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, Paris Saint-Germain will still achieve big hits in this summer transfer window. Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan) and Moroccan side Inter Achraf Hakimi are expected, as is Sergio Ramos. This Thursday afternoon, RMC Sport argued that the Spanish defender and the capital club had reached an agreement around a two-year contract. Good news, but not necessarily for everyone.
If we are to believe the information disclosed by The Parisian this Thursday evening, the arrival of the former captain of Real Madrid at PSG is not unanimous. The Ile-de-France daily argues that this transfer has quite simply “angered some players” … Starting with the French international Presnel Kimpembe, unbreakable in central hinge and who therefore risks having competition from this summer in defense. But that’s not just the problem.
The salary, still a problem to come?
While the Parisians let Thiago Silva go free at Chelsea last summer, the arrival of Sergio Ramos challenges more than one in the locker room. The method of recruiting leaders is indeed surprising, Sergio Ramos being, as we recall, 35 years old. And at that age, many people wonder about his physical condition and his ability to chain matches. Unfortunately, this is not all.
Last point mentioned by our colleagues from Parisian : salary. The Covid-19 pandemic having strongly impacted club finances, the financial aspect is increasingly important. And with an annual salary of 15 million euros at PSG for Sergio Ramos, the balance in the locker room is threatened, writes the French media. The Spain international is not yet a PSG player but his arrival is already causing a lot of talk.
