Sergio Ramos' move to Paris Saint-Germain is nearing completion with the Spaniard to undergo a medical before signing a two-year deal.

It was recently confirmed Ramos would not be extending his stay with Real Madrid, bringing an end to a trophy-laden 16-year spell at the club.

The former Real captain claimed he intended to pen fresh terms at the Santiago Bernabeu - a move which would have seen him remain in Madrid until 2022 - but the offer made by the club had been taken off the table once he decided to accept the deal.

Since news of his exit became public knowledge a whole host of European clubs have been credited with an interest in the veteran centre back, yet PSG have remained as frontrunners in the race to secure his signature.

Said move is now one step closer to becoming a reality, with The Guardian reporting that Ramos will undergo a medical prior to signing a two-year deal at Parc des Princes.

While Ramos undoubtedly brings with him a wealth of experience having played top-level football for the last 17 years, questions remain over his fitness.

The Spain international featured just once for Real in the final two months of the 2020/21 season due to injury, and even then he picked up a knock in their Champions League semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

If Ramos can stay fit then he'll add experience and quality to the PSG backline as they look to wrestle their Ligue 1 title off Lille as well as competing in the Champions League.

Les Parisiens have wasted no time at all in making some big moves this summer, with Ramos' signing expected to be confirmed alongside the arrivals of talented Milan youngster Gianluigi Donnarumma and Inter's Achraf Hakimi.

Mauricio Pochettino's squad has also already been bolstered by the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum, while the club are working on a deal to secure the arrival of Moise Kean from Everton after his impressive loan spell last season.
