An English club might have saved PSG 80 ME!

An English club might have saved PSG 80 ME!

This summer, PSG made a big deal by acquiring Portuguese nugget Gonzalo Ramos. The 22-year-old Portugal striker has a big future with the Parisians. However, a year ago this transfer was almost impossible.

Gonzalo Ramos made an intimidating debut at PSG and if he still doesn't have the full confidence of Luis Enrique, his talent is unquestionable among the Parisian supporters. A surface fox, he managed to find fault three times in 8 starts. He scored a double against OM and a goal against Monaco, sorry. PSG acquired him on loan from Benfica during the transfer window and exercised a purchase option at €65 million (+€15 million in possible bonuses). For a maximum fee of €80 million, the Portugal striker remains in Paris until 2028. It is expensive but, in the current market, very good strikers are not on the streets, especially a player capable of scoring a hat-trick in the round of 16. World Cup Final.

So PSG have made a good bet for the future with 22-year-old Gonzalo Ramos. Unlike other big teams, the Parisian club is ready for the future in this strategic gaming industry. However, according to The Athletic, the Parisian move could not have been better. In fact, according to the English media, Jorge Mendes offered Gonzalo Ramos to Nottingham Forest a year ago. So at Benfica, three months before the Portuguese striker left for Qatar with his selection, he hadn't fully exploded into Europe's eyes at the time.

In the end, Forest opted to sign Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolverhampton. A natural choice as Ramos refused to join the recent promotion to the Premier League. Although we'll never know what would have happened by forcing the player to do so, it was enough to assuage the English club's chagrin. If he feels good at Benfica, Ramos has an agent in Jorge Mendes who knows how to convince his clients of potential transfers. PSG can thank the vision and patience of Gonzalo Ramos.
