Sergio Ramos is joining Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, according to RMC Sport correspondent Mohamed Bouhafsi.

The 35-year-old reportedly agreed to a two-year contract with PSG on Thursday, one day after his deal with Real Madrid officially expired. He spent the last 16 years with Madrid and captained the club for the past six seasons.

Manchester City and Bayern Munich were reportedly monitoring the situation, but any hopes they may have had of a breakdown in talks seemingly evaporated Thursday.

Ramos, who's never played club football outside of Spain, said in June that Madrid withdrew their offer of a one-year extension before he could accept it.

"In recent months, the club made me an offer of one year with a lower salary, and I want to emphasize that money was never a problem," he told reporters at his farewell press conference. "I wanted two years for continuity, for me and my family. There was never a financial issue.

"When I finally decided to accept the offer of one year and a lower salary, I was told the offer had an expiration date that I was not aware of."

Ramos is expected to become PSG's third free-agent signing of the summer after goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

Les Parisiens are also reportedly closing in on the acquisition of full-back Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan for around €70 million.

Ramos made 671 appearances for Madrid, winning 22 titles.
