Per a report from RMC Sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, former Real Madrid stalwart will sign a contract with Paris Saint-Germain in the coming days.

Ramos, of course, was linked to high-profile clubs like Bayern Munich and Manchester City. The 35-year-old legend, however, appears to have decided on a future in France. Ramos was reportedly set on signing a two-year deal that would provide some stability and security as he winds down his career. The veteran even stated that money was not as big an issue as the length of the contract last week:

Ramos will certainly be a valuable presence in the PSG lineup and many Bayern Munich fans were excited about the prospect of the star joining a new-look Bavarian side.

That scenario, however, will not play out. As a free agent, Ramos would not have cost Bayern Munich anything, but the cost of a salary — and that is probably where the two parties would not have come to an agreement.

The salary structure at Bayern Munich has come under fire of late and adding a player of Ramos’ stature might have upset things even more.
