Sergio Ramos’ exit from Real Madrid was confirmed by the La Liga giants on Wednesday.
The defender is available on a free transfer and today’s edition of AS has looked at where he could end up next season.
Manchester City get a mention and the newspaper states the Premier League winners have gained more traction in recent weeks.
That’s because the 35-year-old’s entourage are in contact with the Citizens’ leaders for a ‘long time’, with an ‘aim of reaching an agreement’ to sign the defender.
Pep Guardiola has Rúben Dias, John Stones Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Aké as the four centre-backs at his disposal.
There have been rumours of Laporte wanting a move away from the Etihad and his exit could open the door for the English champions to sign Ramos.
For this reason, City ‘considered the possibility’ to sign a ‘veteran player’ and this is where Ramos fits the bill.
Despite his age, the Spaniard has suitors and his signing is viewed as a ‘market opportunity’ for top clubs in the summer window.
Apart from City, AS add Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain could emerge as other options for the centre-back.
