PSG defender Sergio Ramos is close to making his long-awaited debut for his new club. The Spain international is in keen to get back out on the pitch after several months on the sidelines but it also aware of timing his return correctly.

Ramos on the way back

Ramos is currently undergoing his own pre-season with his recovery plan well underway. There is, however, still no fixed date, although those close to the player say that he is on the way to a return. PSG are not putting pressure on the experienced defender. The French club's directors and coaching staff don't want him to rush back and risk further damage.

After a difficult year, Ramos is eager to make his comeback and repay PSG for the trust they have placed in him by signing him on a two-season contract. Ramos played his last match on 5 May at Stamford Bridge in Real Madrid's Champions League semi-final second leg defeat to Chelsea.

The Spain captain underwent surgery on 6 February for an internal meniscus injury in his left knee. The surgery was performed by Dr Manuel Leyes, under the supervision of Real Madrid's medical team. Ramos then returned in March to line out for Madrid and the Spanish national team before returning to the sidelines until May.

Seeking international cap record

Ramos' is now looking to put his injury issues to one side and become a regular in the PSG starting eleven and from there return to the national team with his sights firmly set on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The 35-year-old has played 180 games for Spain and is just five games away from beating Egypt's Hassan Ahmed international record of 184 games for Egypt.
