Sergio Ramos reveals how Neymar influenced his PSG move amid Arsenal, Manchester City interest

Neymar was Paris Saint-Germain’s secret weapon in their signing of Sergio Ramos.

The Spaniard revealed that any doubts he had about a move to France were put to bed by the Brazilian.

Ramos, 34, was monitored by Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Arsenal, Man City and Chelsea after he left Real Madrid on a free transfer last month.

Arsenal were reportedly desperate to land the veteran defender to replace David Luiz, offering him £15m per annum.

Manchester City also tabled eye-watering package to lure Ramos to the Etihad.

In an interview with L’Equipe, and reported by AS, he explained: “Neymar convinced me before signing for PSG.

“Before signing for a new club, it is always helpful to talk with several players, or with Leonardo or Al Khelaïfi.

“They all convinced me in their own way.”
