It is the end. August 31, 2005 – June 30, 2021. A relationship of sixteen years, made of joys and sorrows, especially joys. According to information revealed by Marca, confirmed by the club itself, Sergio Ramos will announce tomorrow that he is leaving Real Madrid. The Casa Blanca captain will travel to Ciudad Deportiva, located in Valdebebas, and announce his decision to leave Madrid, less than two weeks before the end of his contract.
On June 30, Sergio Ramos’ contract with Real Madrid ends. The 35-year-old and club merengue have failed to agree on an extension. Florentino Pérez offered Sergio Ramos a one-year contract, with a 10% pay cut, but the international defender with 180 caps wanted to sign up for at least two seasons.
Real Madrid did not want a long-term contract
Madrid’s management, tired of the slowness of negotiations, decided to withdraw its offer of a one-year extension since the 35-year-old central defender did not want to lower his salary. On the side of Madrid, we do not want to leave each other angry. Quite the contrary. The Spanish press recently evoked the desire of the president to offer a farewell worthy of the player, who has stored twenty-two titles in the white jersey.
“Real Madrid CF announces that tomorrow, Thursday 17 June, at 12:30 pm, there will be an institutional act of tribute and farewell to our captain Sergio Ramos, in the presence of our president Florentino Pérez. Next, Sergio Ramos will appear in front of the media at a telematic press conference, ” announces Real Madrid, in a press release. The defender’s official farewell to the 671 matches for Real Madrid will be celebrated at the sports city of Valdebebas. Absent from Luis Enrique’s list for Euro 2020, Sergio Ramos was deemed a little short physically, after a complicated season. At 35, he will, in a few days, land on the market. And there is no doubt that the stables should jostle at the gate.
