Sergio Ramos to Leave the Galacticos this Summer

by Sola Legend

A press conference would be held on Thursday to officially announce the departure of Real Madrid captain after 16 years at the club.

A short statement on the club’s official website read: “Real Madrid CF announces that tomorrow, Thursday, June 17, at 12:30 pm, there will be an institutional act of tribute and farewell to our captain Sergio Ramos, with the presence of our president Florentino Perez.

“After that, Sergio Ramos will appear before the media at a telematic press conference.”

Ramos joined The Galacticos from Sevilla in 2005 and made 671 appearances for the club, winning five La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, four Champions Leagues, and four Club World Cup trophies.

It was during his time at the club that he also won the 2010 World Cup with Spain along with back-to-back European Championships in 2008 and 2012.

However, injuries have taken their toll in the most recent crusade as he played just 21 times as Real lost out in the title race to city rivals Atletico while also losing at the semi-final stage of the Champions League to later Champions Chelsea FC.

The 35-year-old struggled with muscle injuries and a knee problem that required surgery, which meant that he only played once since March – the 2-0 Champions League semi-final second-leg defeat to Chelsea on May 5.

It also meant Ramos lost a place in Spain’s squad for Euro 2020 as manager Luis Enrique decided to select no Real players in his team.

Spanish press reports have frequently questioned Ramos’ long-term future at the Bernabeu with the club management keen on making major modifications to the playing squad this summer.

Ramos will be without a contract by summer and a host of top clubs are already reported to be eager to sign him.
