Ramos joined Paris Saint-Germain with Leo Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum and Achraf Hakimi. So far, it can only be said that the acquisition of the latter was a bull’s-eye. Messi and Wijnaldum are yet to show their best in Paris, and Donnarumma is still battling for a place among the publications with Keylor Navas in a race where there is no clear favourite.
Ramos, on the other hand, neither plays nor trains with the team. Immediately after his arrival at the Parc des Princes, there were voices straight from the dressing room that the players were even impressed by the charisma and professionalism of one of their teammates when Zlatan Ibrahimovi came to the French capital. But so far, the contribution of the world and European champion to the development of the pilot project for Qatari investors has ended.
All because of a calf injury, which ruled him out of the May Champions League semi-final match against Chelsea, it has yet to be averted. Paris Saint-Germain doctors do not even offer when the player will return, because every time he increases the intensity of training and puts a load on his leg, he feels pain. Rehabilitation has no effect.
“Paris Saint-Germain doctors have expressed their doubts about the ability of Sergio Ramos to return to the highest level since the first search of the Spaniard,” FIFA journalist Abdoulaye Bolem wrote on Twitter. This could mean that during the standard medical checks that are carried out at every transfer, the Paris club owners ignored the doctors’ evaluation and signed a contract with a player who may never return to his perfect form.
Ramos has signed a contract until 2023, under which he collects £15m net per year. For several months now, the Qatari people have been paying a fortune for a great defender whose merits are in no way related to their club. There is a fear that the pictures of the Spaniard from the presentation after the move will be his last in the Paris Saint-Germain shirt.
