Mourinho Contacts Sergio Ramos But Turks Overtake Roma

The Rome hypothesis still remains strong for free agent Sergio Ramos. The Spanish icon is without a club since his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired at the end of the previous season, and the Giallorossi are in search of a center-back, which means both parties could pair up for at least one season.

As per Tuttomercatoweb (via VoceGiallorossa), there have been contacts from Roma’s end via Jose Mourinho with the Real Madrid legend. Ramos is keen to stay in Europe and has two clubs on his back at the moment, with Turkish giants Galatasaray also in the picture and perhaps ahead of Roma in the race.

Determined to stay in Europe, Ramos has so far ignored and rejected advances from Saudi Arabia and MLS in particular. He reportedly has multiple offers waiting for his answer. As a free agent, Ramos is free to join any club even after the transfer window shuts close.

Mourinho and Ramos worked together for three seasons in the Spanish capital, as they conquered Spain with one La Liga, Copa Del Rey, and Supercopa de Espana title each.

Our Take on the Ramos-Roma transfer talk

A world-class defender and leader, Ramos possesses the utmost qualities to enhance Roma’s sturdiness at the back as Mourinho searches for reinforcements. It is a transfer that could very well play in the favor of Roma, especially as a sixth addition to the center-back position after Evan Ndicka, Gianluca Mancini, Chris Smalling, Diego Llorente, and the injured Marash Kumbulla.
