Real Madrid have announced that skipper Sergio Ramos will leave the club when his contract expires on June 30.
New Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti wanted to keep the legendary defender at the club, but the Spaniard wanted a new challenge after 16 years at the Bernabeu.
Alongside President Florentino Perez, Ramos will be honored in a tribute on Thursday before addressing the media later.
Ramos only played two games in 2021 after undergoing successful knee surgery in January and was left on the bench for the last game of the season against Villarreal.
He was not included in Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for Euro 2020 due to a lack of form and fitness due to a series of insignificant injuries.
This is breaking news. Further updates will follow shortly.
