According to El Nacional, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are looking to sign Rafa Marin from Real Madrid as a replacement for Sergio Ramos.
Marin, 20, plays for Los Blancos’ youth academy. He has made 58 appearances for RM Castilla this season and is considered one of the brighest prospects of the Madrid giants’ academy.
Ramos, meanwhile, is in the final months of his contract with the Parisians. His future remains uncertain, as the Spaniard is yet to receive a renewal offer from the Ligue 1 giants.
He joined PSG from Real Madrid in 2021. After an injury-plagued first season, the former La Roja captain has found his feet this season. He has made 37 apperances across competitions for Christophe Galtier’s team, helping keep 12 clean sheets.
However, with Milan Skriniar set to arrive from Inter Milan in the summer, Ramos could be deemed surplus to requirements and allowed to leave. The Parisians are reportedly courting Los Blancos’ academy product Marin as a potential long-term replacement for Ramos.
