Sergio Ramos, the veteran Spanish defender, had a tempting proposition on the table to extend his stay at PSG for up to two years, the player revealed in an interview conceded to Marca after his move to La Liga side Sevilla.

The Spanish football icon chose to heed the call of his cherished club in Spain instead of staying put in Paris or moving to the Saudi Pro League or the American MLS for the 2023/24 season.

Ramos, who arrived at PSG as a free agent in the summer of 2021, initially grappled with fitness issues but eventually established himself in Christophe Galtier's starting XI even though he struggled mightily to show any sort of top-tier level of play.

Sergio Ramos, now 37 years old, rejoined Sevilla FC, a club grappling with La Liga difficulties, where they currently occupy the 20th position with three losses in as many matches. Ramos expressed his pride and emotions regarding this return, emphasizing the significance of coming back to fulfill a dream after an 18-year absence.

Ramos revealed that he had the opportunity to extend his stance at PSG for an additional two seasons. However, the decisive factor in his choice was his penchant for following his heart and impulses rather than financial considerations.

The Spaniard adamantly asserted that he was never motivated by financial gain and that his decision to return to Sevilla was a heartfelt one.

Ramos said "That's why it didn't make sense for me to go to Saudi Arabia, or to go to MLS, or to go anywhere other than here. I waited, with a bit of hope, and it came in the 93rd minute."

At the age of 37, Sergio Ramos embarks on the final chapter of his illustrious career, once again donning the jersey of the club he started his career at before going on to become one of the greatest defenders in football history.
