Sergio Ramos’ Paris Saint-Germain debut draws closer and defender could face Manchester City alongside Neymar
| Breaking News Updates | Today Headlines
After being part of the star-studded transfer window, the last of PSG’s summer signings, Sergio Ramos could finally make his debut for the club.
The Real Madrid legend left the Spanish capital when his contract expired last season and signed a two-year contract with the Parisians.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side welcome Nantes as they seek to extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 13 points behind second-placed Lens.
While it should be a straightforward afternoon for the Parisians, it will be an afternoon Ramos should savor after being injured since joining the club.
The 35-year-old has been treating calf and knee cartilage injuries since signing for the club and could have almost been sent off early had he not shown progress in his recovery.
PSG were apparently looking to cancel their contract but those rumors never came to fruition and the Spaniard now looks set to appear in PSG’s backline.
Even when rumors of Ramos’ early departure circulated, former Real Madrid teammate Dani Carvajal supported him to overcome his injuries and eventually start for the Parisians.
“Sergio Ramos? I can understand what’s going on. He’s the first one who wants to come back as soon as possible,” Carvajal said.
“No one can doubt Ramos’ professionalism. I don’t think a club like PSG will end his contract but I would welcome him here with open arms. He is a very dear friend.
With Ramos set to make his Ligue 1 debut, provided he leaves the game unscathed, he could also feature in the club’s tantalizing fixture against Manchester City in the Champions League.
Against Nantes however, Ramos will not play with Neymar as he is preserved for their game against City due to a left thigh problem.
The Brazilian star is expected to recover from his injury in time for the clash against City.
