Paris Saint-Germain defender Sergio Ramos could play his first match for the Parisiens against Manchester City after being included in their squad for Wednesday’s clash.
Ramos signed for PSG on a free transfer in the summer following the expiry of his Real Madrid contract.
The Spaniard enjoyed a legendary career with Real, spending 16 years at the Santiago Bernabeu, winning four Champions Leagues, five LaLiga titles and four Club World Cups.
He also made 671 appearances for Los Blancos, scoring an impressive 101 goals.
However, injuries limited Ramos to only 21 appearances in all competitions last season and have hampered his time with PSG as well.
The 35-year-old has successfully trained for three weeks without any setbacks and was named in Mauricio Pochettino’s 23-man squad for the trip to Man City.

PSG are one point behind City in Group A and know a win at the Etihad will secure their place in the first knockout round.
Meanwhile, Pochettino has been lined with the Manchester United job following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And Rio Ferdinand doubts that the Argentine would leave PSG during the season as he is “a man of integrity”.
“I don’t think that Pochettino leaves PSG during the season,” Ferdinand said on his Vibe with FIVE YouTube channel. “He’s a man of integrity, he’s a man of respect.
“I think he’s grateful for the opportunity to be at PSG and as a man, I think he’ll just say: ‘If they want me that bad they’ll wait’.
“I think from the media that we saw over the last couple of years when he was out of work, that for him Man United is the pinnacle, is the club he’d love to get to, get his hands on and guide the club.
“He’s got a lot of stuff going on at PSG so you have to be respectful in that sense.
“It’s about what PSG want as well because they’re not the kind of club that will just relinquish their manager.
“I’m putting money on Pochettino, for the end of the season, start of next season, my money’s on Pochettino being manager.”
