He was excellent last season.

Wouldn't be a bad move on a free in this current climate.

He’s still a good player who’d bring a winning mentality which is extremely lacking in our current squad. One has to look at Varane’s form without Ramos to see the impact he has at organizing and covering his partners. He would be a great addition to the squad.

It wasn’t long ago people were laughing at the idea of Zlatan and Cavani for us and Thiago Silva for Chelsea. All the same things were said in their respective threads; too old for the Premier League, looking for a last pay day and coming from either a farmers league or a 2 team league and look at their impact. Just because a player is over 30 doesn’t mean they’re finished.
But equally you’ve only picked examples of players who were relative successes. You could equally point to players like Schweinsteiger. That said, I think your defence is in desperate need of an organiser.

Yeah there is no doubt about that but my only worry is the lack of pace in that partnership with Harry, mind you if he is commenting on an offer from PSG then sounds like he has made up his mind to go there anyway

For a defender, he is as prolific as they come, I mean look at the numbers below: -

International: 170 appearances, 21 goals (1 WC & 1 EC)
UEFA club competition: 134 appearances, 16 goals (4 UCL titles)
Domestic competition: 576 appearances, 80 goals ( 5 La Liga titles and 2 Copa del Rey titles)

He is 35 in April this year, and what made him an excellent CB for Madrid beside his aggressive tackling and his ability on the ball is his Athleticism, would he still be able to keep up with EPL forwards? would he still have the same pace & power? not really sure.

But if we assume he is still physically capable to a certain degree, then he would be an astute acquisition, with his leadership qualities, assuming we do not offer crazy wages and it is for the short term, perhaps our defenders can learn a thing or two from him.

Thanks.

How fast is he these days? There's quite a few people in here saying he's not fast enough, so I'm wondering if he slowed down a lot as he's gotten older or is it just people in here thinking an older player is going to be slow? I haven't really watched you guys play for the last few years.
Sorry for the delay. At least recently you haven't missed much by not watching us. Actually it is difficult to answer. I guess it's not something I look at in matches.
I see him well but it is also true that it is a bit misleading to assess this until a real match with an important rival.
However he has recently had an operation for knee pain and will be away for a couple of months.

This is never going to happen.......we’ve moved on from these kind of signings.....

we need someone with pace who has years ahead of him.....Ramos today is not the Ramos of old.

we are being used (again) to bolster his contract negotiations with RM or to get a better deal at the likes of PSG.

Im not surprised RM are being much more cautious dishing out big final contracts when they see the mess Barca have gotten into
