Madrid.- The real Madrid announced this Wednesday the goodbye of his captain, Sergio Ramos, 35, who ends his contract with the white club on June 30 and has not reached an agreement for its renewal.
“Real Madrid 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 Pérez”, points out the statement released by the club.
Fourteen days after the end of Sergio Ramos’ contract, the two parties ended long negotiations in which they were never close to an agreement. The player’s wish was to sign a final contract with a minimum duration of two years and Real Madrid offered him one with a salary reduction.
Sergio Ramos leaves from Real Madrid as one of the great legends of its history. It came in exchange for 27 million euros in 2005, from Sevilla. After 16 years and 671 official matches, only Paco Gento won more titles with the white team than the Sevillian defender, who says goodbye as the second most awarded.
He leaves the white club after winning four Champions Leagues, five Leagues, four Club World Cups, two King’s Cups, three European Super Cups and four Spanish Super Cups.
He is the top scorer with 101 goals and the fourth player with the most games in the history of Real Madrid after Raúl González, Iker Casillas and Manolo Sanchís.
