There are only eight games left on PSG's schedule and fewer than two months for the season to be over. Come June 2023, Sergio Ramos' deal with Paris Saint-Germain will come to an end but the club has not yet offered him an extension.
The veteran Spanish center-back is still waiting for PSG to offer him a new contract and is facing a summer in which he could be unemployed for the first time in his career.
Ramos, who arrived at Paris Saint-Germain during the 2021 summer transfer window, spent last season pretty much on the shelves because of different injuries but refound his mojo this campaign in the French capital precisely because of others getting injured.
Now established as a stalwart in the center of the Parisian defense, the international retiree is hella slow but still stout when it comes to tackling and bringing his presence to the football pitch. Sergio Ramos has appeared in 37 games in all competitions with PSG this season, logging a monster 2,978 minutes of play so far and entering Saturday's clash against Lens.
It's a staring contest between Sergio Ramos and PSG at this point
According to the Spanish radio show El Larguero, PSG have not yet offered Ramos a new contract to keep him in tow next season, thus turning him into a free agent come July as things stand.
One of the main problems PSG is facing is Ramos' alleged salary demands. The Spaniard, who earns around €12m per year, seemingly doesn't want to lower his salary going forward. According to journalist Andres Onrubia, speaking at the aforementioned show, that's something PSG won't accept.
A few days ago, L'Equipe revealed that Ramos has been offered "€30m net per year over two seasons by Al-Nassr," where former-teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is currently playing in Saudi Arabia. That, in line with the salary ranks published by the French newspaper on Thursday, would see Ramos triple his current salary at PSG.
It is obvious that PSG should never get into contract negotiations with Ramos and if he is so stubborn about keeping their high salaries intact.
This being PSG, though, you have to at least concede that there is a chance the Parisian board will end up paying whatever the veterans demand them to in order to keep the bright lights as shiny as they always are in the capital, if only for kicks and giggles.
