Why Sergio Ramos Rejected Arsenal Before Joining PSG
Sergio Ramos, a Spanish defender, turned down an offer from Arsenal before joining PSG on a free transfer.
Ramos was on the verge of signing a one-year contract with Real Madrid when he was told he had missed the offer deadline.
After leaving Real Madrid this summer, the prolific centre-back signed a two-year contract with the French club.
Ramos had been approached by a number of great teams, including Arsenal, but he was convinced by the PSG vision and could not refuse it.
Arsenal attempted to sign the defender ahead of next season but was turned down by the star player.
Arsenal offered the 35-year-old a two-year contract worth €17 million (£15 million/$20 million) per season, but he turned it down because Arsenal will not be in the Champions League next season.
Ramos agreed to sign a two-year contract with PSG worth €12 million per season, with bonuses, bringing his annual compensation to €15 million (£13 million/$18 million).
