Sergio Ramos’ football fate remains shrouded in mystery even after the market closure in Europe. Despite rumors linking him with a Sevilla return in recent weeks, the Spain defender remains without a team and may now be considering one last gamble in his career as Saudi Arabia continue to tempt him.
According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, Saudi Arabia-based team Al Ittihad are considering signing the 37-year-old veteran centre-back. The proposed offer would consist of a two-year contract with a release clause. This option represents an attractive alternative for Ramos, who is also considering offers from Turkey.
