Sevilla's Adil Rami 'turned down Paris Saint-Germain move'

Sevilla defender Adil Rami says that he turned down the chance to join Paris Saint-Germain in the latter stages of the summer transfer window.

Sevilla defender Adil Rami has revealed that he turned down the chance to join Paris Saint-Germain in the latter stages of the summer transfer window.

The France international, who moved to Sevilla from AC Milan in the summer of 2015, was a key figure under now PSG boss Unai Emery at the Estadio Ramon last season.

Rami has said that he "had contact" with his former head coach after David Luiz was sold to Chelsea, but rejected the French champions due to concerns over a lack of playing time in Paris.

"I had contact with Unai Emery during the last transfer window about going to PSG," he told the Team Duga podcast. "But neither PSG nor I were 100% sure.

"It was very late [in the window], when David Luiz left for Chelsea [on August 31]. We discussed it. It made me think, but I kept a cool head. Today I need to play. Now I am at a club playing at European level. I know the qualities of central defenders already at PSG. I did not want to take risks."

Rami was part of the France team that reached the final of Euro 2016.
