Sergio Ramos appeared to take a dig at his former team Real Madrid after completing a move to join Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday.
The legendary 35-year-old centre-back left Los Blancos at the end of last month following 16 glorious years as his contract at the Bernabeu expired.
He was linked with a whole host of elite clubs, among them Manchester United and Chelsea, but has now put pen to paper on a two-year deal with PSG.
After the move was confirmed, Ramos took to social media to share a picture of himself holding a PSG shirt.
And he sent a pointed message towards his former employers as he tweeted: "The best place to keep on dreaming, the best club to keep on winning. We're going to fight with everything we have for everything. Allez PSG."
Sergio Ramos has signed a two-year contract at PSG
Ramos left Madrid under controversial circumstances, and he insisted at the time that he did not want to depart but was driven out by president Florentino Perez.
Speaking at his farewell ceremony he said: “I would like to clarify that I never wanted to leave Real Madrid, I always wanted to continue here. The club offered me the chance to renew my contract, but with COVID and everything it kept being put off.
“Then in the last months the club made me an offer of one year, with a drop in salary. Money was never a problem, the president knew from my mouth that my issue was contract length — I wanted two years, for me and my family.

“I was never told that there was an expiry date to the offer. I thought it was just part of the negotiation – as always has happened over 16 years. But then I was told time had run out.
“I don't know why this offer had an expiry date, without being told, while there was a negotiation. Maybe I misunderstood, but nobody had told me the offer could be withdrawn."
On the signing of Ramos, PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: "Today, Paris welcomes one of the greatest players of our era. We are delighted to announce that Sergio Ramos has joined us.
"Sergio is a complete footballer, one of the best defenders in the history of the game. He is a born competitor, a leader and a true professional. His vast experience and ambition is in perfect synergy with those of the club."
Ramos will wear the No.4 shirt at the Parc des Princes, and will hope to inspire the club to their first ever Champions League title next season.
PSG have also completed the signings of Georginio Wijnaldum, Danilo Pereira and Achraf Hakimi this summer, and Mauricio Pochettino is building a formidable looking squad in the French capital.
