Sergio Ramos signs for PSG on free transfer after bungling French giants accidentally announce move day earlyJuly 8, 2021
SERGIO RAMOS' move to PSG was accidentally leaked – by the French giants themselves.
The Real Madrid legend completed his move to Paris on Thursday.
But somebody at PSG appeared to have jumped the gun on Wednesday night.
An article announcing that Sergio Ramos will wear the No 4 shirt was posted on the club's website.
It was swiftly deleted – but not before the internet had already noticed.
Ramos said in the article: "This number four, I appreciate it a lot out of superstition, because I had it from the start of my career, and then it accompanied me throughout my life, continued with me, brought good luck, and a lot of victories.
"Now number four is part of me as a person and as a professional. For me, it's a privilege to be able to wear this number in such a great team, Paris Saint-Germain.
"So it will be very special to be able to wear my number here in Paris."
The Real Madrid legend is leaving after 16 trophy-laden years in the Spanish capital.
He has signed a two-year deal with the French giants after completing his medical.
The Spain international will be on lower wages at PSG than the approximately £310,000-a-week he earned at Madrid.
PSG sporting director Leonardo accelerated talks in the middle of June and progress has been made this week.

Former Clasico rival Neymar, described as a friend of Ramos, has reportedly urged the player to make the switch to PSG.
Mauricio Pochettino's side failed to win either Ligue 1 or the Champions League last campaign, falling short in the final weeks of both competitions.
The coach is said to want extra experience and leadership added to his squad this summer, with Ramos boasting over 700 club appearances.
It is said that he views Paris as a better location for his family of TV presenter wife Pilar Rubio and their four sons.
