Paris Saint-Germain defender Sergio Ramos announced on Twitter that the contest against Clermont Foot on Saturday at the Parc des Princes will be his last with the French giants.
L’Equipe reported details on Friday that led to Ramos and PSG parting ways after two seasons. The French Media outlet notes neither party could find common ground on a contract extension.
🚨| Sergio Ramos could not find common ground with PSG. Paris offered him an additional year with a drastic reduction in his salary – insuffient for him. PSG were ready to keep him (but not at all costs) & have him in the rotation section for next season. 🇪🇸🔚 [@lequipe] pic.twitter.com/ja5tEk70Iv

The Ligue 1 side offered the 37-year-old an additional year with a drastic reduction in his salary; however, it was insufficient for the former Real Madrid captain.
PSG was ready to keep Ramos, but not at all costs, and have him in the rotation section for the 2023-24 season. The Spain international has displayed leadership qualities, but even being a leader has its financial limits with sporting advisor Luis Campos and Co.
As a result, it will be interesting to see whether Paris attempts to replace Sergio Ramos for next season, as they’ll have Marquinhos and Milan Škriniar occupying the right-footed center-back role.
