Real Madrid have confirmed that Sergio Ramos will leave the club after 16 years.

A press conference is set to be held tomorrow to bid farewell to the club captain whose contract expires at the end of this month.

statement from the club read: “Real Madrid announces that tomorrow, Thursday 17 June, at 12:30 pm, an act of tribute and farewell to our captain Sergio Ramos will be held, which will be attended by our president Florentino Perez.

“Sergio Ramos will then appear before the media in a virtual press conference.”

Ramos was apparently offered an extension, but he refused to take a pay cut, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up next season.

The 35-year-old defender will depart as a club legend, having helped Real Madrid win several Champions League titles and La Liga trophies.

His contribution to winning the coveted La Decima will always be considered as one of the best moments in Real Madrid’s history.

Ramos will probably be disappointed to leave the club after failing to win a single trophy this past season. He would have liked to leave on a winning note, but it has been a difficult campaign for the Spanish international.

He made just 21 appearances in all competitions for the club last season because of injury problems, and he was left out of Spain’s Euro 2020 squad as well.

Since joining the club from Sevilla in 2005, the centre back has played over 670 games for the Spanish giants.

The likes of Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain and Sevilla are thought to be keen on signing him on a free transfer, and it remains to be seen how his future unfolds over the next few weeks.
