Report: Sergio Ramos considering offers from Bayern Munich, Manchester City and PSG

Should Bayern Munich make a move for the defender?

Real Madrid legend recently left the club after his contract was not renewed. Although 35-years-old, the centre-half is still regarded as one of the best in the business and therefore has a lot of suitors in terms of his future team. Among them, according to ESPN, are Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

This is not a terrible list considering the three clubs are arguably all in the world’s top five best outfits. One might even say all three are an upgrade on Real Madrid at the current point in time.

Ramos does want to decide his future promptly, therefore it should be clear in the next few weeks which club the Spaniard will end up at. One of Ramos’ primary concerns for his transfer is his integration into the new country he finds himself and family considerations. For this reason, a move to Germany is seen as difficult due to the tough language and cultural change.

BFW analysis

Forgetting the fact Ramos might not even want to play for Bayern anyway, I personally don’t think Bayern should be offering Ramos a contract. Firstly, Bayern already have a few solid centre-backs in their ranks. Furthermore, money seems quite limited in Bavaria and Ramos’ likely salary would rank among the highest in the squad. This seems like a waste of valuable funds. Not to mention a player who lacks the class and decorum expected of a Bayern player.

Finally, Ramos is 35 and therefore goes against Bayern’s entire transfer philosophy. The club would be better served to buy a younger, more long-term option instead of the aged Ramos.

However, it appears not everyone agrees with me that Ramos would be a terrible option for the club:
