Sergio Ramos has told Real Madrid players that he will be moving to Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in Spain.
Ramos is leaving Santiago Bernabeu on a free transfer this summer after a successful 16-year stint at the Spanish club.
Manchester United, Chelsea, AC Milan and PSG have all been linked with a move for the 35-year-old central defender.
But according to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope, Ramos has already told three of his Real Madrid teammates that he will be joining PSG this summer.
The report claims that Ramos has accepted PSG’s offer and turned down approaches from other teams, which includes Manchester United and Chelsea.
PSG, meanwhile, are believed to be keen to add experience to their defense after losing Thiago Silva to Chelsea on a free transfer last summer.
The French side are also interested in Raphael Varane, who is wanted by United. And speaking last week, Ramos said he wanted to remain at Madrid and even accused the club of taking away their offer of a new contract.

‘I’ve never wanted to leave,’ said Ramos. ‘The club offered me one year, with a drop in salary. I wanted two years, not for the money, for continuity for me and my family. The economic issue was never a problem.
‘Then I decided to accept the offer that I thought was on the table, of one year, but I was told that the offer wasn’t there any more.
‘They told my agent that the offer had expired a week ago. The truth is I don’t know why the offer expired, I can’t answer that. There was a negotiation and maybe I misunderstood.’
