Sergio Ramos might find himself reuniting with Cristiano Ronaldo, as the 37-year-old is rumored to be considering a striking move to Al Nassr.
Currently unattached due to the conclusion of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, Ramos has spent two seasons in France, amassing 58 appearances and netting six goals. His time in Paris saw him secure two league titles.
Undoubtedly, Ramos is most renowned for his 16 seasons at Real Madrid, where he accumulated an impressive array of trophies, including four Champions League titles.
Having enjoyed nine successful years together at Real, both Ramos and Ronaldo could potentially experience a reunion in Saudi Arabia with Al Nassr.
