Real Madrid Have Confirmed The Departure Of Sergio Ramos After 16 Years At The Club


It’s official. Sergio Ramos will leave Real Madrid after 16 years at the club. The end of an era.

In a brief statement on the club’s website, Los Blancos announced that there will be an institutional act of tribute and farewell to their captain on Thursday, June 17 at 12:30pm.

Ramos will be joined by club president Florentino Pérez at the ceremony before appearing before the media at a telematic press conference.

The Spanish defender, who made 671 appearances for Real in 16 seasons, lifting 22 honours, has been linked with a move for some time but the question remains; who will he join next?

It was reported last week that former club Sevilla have offered the 35-year-old centre-back a five-year deal.

That proposal from the La Liga outfit includes the possibility of Ramos remaining at the club in a different capacity once he retires, according to Spanish outlet El Primero Palo, with a salary of €7 million per year on the table.

Ramos has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United in recent months, as well as a surprise rumour involving Liverpool.

Back in January, it was reported that Ramos wanted a move to Manchester United after a chat with club legend David Beckham, who told him about life at Old Trafford during their time together in Spain.

And a few months later, he fueled the PSG transfer rumours by commenting on Neymar’s contract extension, as well as following a host of their current players.

He’s playing a game I didn’t think I’d see my captain play. Pretty disappointing
