Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Sergio Ramos has revealed that he wants to extend his contract with the club beyond its current expiration in 2023, as well as play beyond his 40th birthday.

Ramos moved to Paris as a free agent last summer following his departure from Real Madrid after 16 seasons with Los Blancos. But despite the fanfare surrounding his arrival, the four-time Champions League winner has struggled to get minutes on the pitch.

Injury problems, which also hampered his final season with Real, ensured Ramos was unable to make his debut until late November and he has played just seven times in all competitions all season – only recently returning from his latest spell out of action.

Ramos was even noticeably heckled by PSG fans when he appeared off the bench during a win over Lorient earlier this month, but started on the road against Clermont Foot last time out.

However, the difficult circumstances haven’t pushed Ramos to want to leave and he seems to be embracing the challenge of ensuring his time at the club will be a success.

The player, who turned 36 at the end of March, has revealed that he is keen to extend his overall career into his forties but specifically wants to stay at PSG in the shorter-term.

“I’d like to play for another four to five years at a high level, and then experience something else,” he explained to Amazon Prime. “I have a two-year contract here in Paris [and] we’ll try to make that three! One more, and then we’ll see.”

Extending his contract would see Ramos stay at Parc des Princes until the summer of 2024.
