SERGIO RAMOS has reportedly agreed terms with Spain’s La Liga outfit Sevilla, where he began his career 18 years ago.

Fabrizio Romano, the respected Italian football expert, tweeted this evening, September 3: ‘Sergio Ramos to Sevilla, here we go! The verbal agreement has been reached on a short-term deal – despite proposals on the table from Al Ittihad and also Turkish clubs #Sevilla’.


UPDATE: Sunday, September 3 at 8:15 pm

LA LIGA outfit Sevilla have reportedly made a move to hijack a prospective move by Sergio Ramos to the Saudi Pro League.

The 37-year-old Spanish football legend was reported to have reached a verbal agreement with the Jeddah-based club, Al-Ittihad. That could see him joining a whole host of top European players who are now playing in the Middle East.

Since departing from PSG at the end of June, Ramos is without a club and is a free agent. According to a tweet from Santi Ortega in Cadena Ser’s Carrusel Deportiva, the iconic defender has had a change of heart and will return to the Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium where he began his glittering career.

SPANISH football legend Sergio Ramos has reportedly reached a verbal agreement to join Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad.

The iconic 37-year-old centre-back is currently a free agent after leaving Ligue 1 giants PSG. According to Rudy Galleti, the respected Italian sports journalist, Ramos will undergo medical checks with the club.

He tweeted: ‘#AlIttihad and Sergio #Ramos reached a verbal agreement for his transfer as a free agent, confirmed.  The CB will undergo medical tests soon.  If everything is good, the former #PSG player will join the club’.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of all time, Ramos is known for his exceptional tackling skills, aerial abilities and strong leadership qualities. He also has a phenomenal goalscoring record for a defender.

During his 16 seasons wearing the iconic white shirt of Real Madrid, he won five La Liga titles and lifted the UEFA Champions League four times, along with two Copa del Rey trophy victories.

After making his international debut for Spain at the age of 18, Ramos represented his country at four World Cups and three European Championships.

He captained his nation to victory in both the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championship in 2008 and 2012. The defender was named in the FIFA World Cup Dream Team in 2010, and the UEFA Euro Team of the Tournament in 2012.

Ramos could link up with Karim Benzema

Should he join Al-Ittihad then Ramos will link up once again with his former French international teammate and striker, Karim Benzema.

According to Foot Mercato, the Saudis are eager to sign another defender before the window closes, having already missed out on Real Betis defender Luiz Felipe.

His high-profile move from the Spanish capital to Paris on July 8, 2021, was not the best of experiences. Ramos spent most of the first half of his first season time sidelined with injury.

After recovering he fought his way back into the first team and helped PSG to another Ligue 1 title, with another one following the next season before his departure.
