Sergio Ramos backed to end Real Madrid loyalty and sign for Barcelona

Former Barcelona icon Samuel Eto’o wants Sergio Ramos to do the unthinkable and leave Real Madrid for fierce rivals Barcelona this summer.

Ramos is set to leave Los Blancos on 30 June following the expiry of his contract with the Madrid club and has been linked with moves to clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spaniard has often proven to be a problem for Barcelona, but now Eto’o is urging either the French side or his former club to make a move for the defender.

Speaking to Spanish outlet AS, Ramos said: "Hopefully Sergio goes to PSG.

“If I could sign him for Barca, I would.

"If he goes to PSG, I will be happy and I know that he will help us win the Champions League, which is proving very difficult for us."

Ramos left Real Madrid after 15 years at the club where he won 22 major trophies and scored 101 goals.

The 35-year-old had an emotional farewell at the club where he discussed his contract offer.

“I am never moved by money…it was about years – I wanted two, just to be relaxed, for my family,” he said.

“I felt I had earned it, but it was not to be.

“I thought it was just part of the negotiation – as always has happened over 16 years.

“But then I was told time had run out.

“I don't know why this offer had an expiry date, without being told, while there was a negotiation.

“Maybe I misunderstood, but nobody had told me the offer could be withdrawn.”

However, despite leaving as a player, he said his relationship with Real Madrid was not over as he would return one day in a different role.

"This is not a goodbye, it's a see you later," Ramos said.

"Because I will be back."

Ramos has been linked with moves to England but PSG seems the likelier option.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea are eager to improve their defence but may be put off from a potential deal due to Ramos’ age, fitness concerns and hefty wages.

He missed much of the second half of the season which led to him being excluded from the Spain squad at Euro 2020.
