Real Madrid and Sergio Ramos won’t be signing a contract extension after all.
After months of negotiations, both parties decided to call it quits for good.
The club’s official statement read, “Real Madrid CF announces that today Thursday, June 17, at 12:30 pm, an institutional act of tribute and farewell to our captain Sergio Ramos will take place, with the presence of our president Florentino Pérez.
“Next, Sergio Ramos will appear before the media at a telematic press conference.”
Ramos leaves The Galacticos after 16 years at the club. He has not signed with any other club and a return to Sevilla has been written off already.
Sergio Ramos will NOT join Sevilla. It’s never been an option, they’re not interested in Ramos and the comeback is not even considered. He’s in talks with another club, not Sevilla. ⚪️🇪🇸 #Sevilla #Ramos #SergioRamos

Ramos won four Champions League titles, 5 La Liga and 4 FIFA Club World Cups amongst other honours at Real.
“Ramos is what I call a personality leader,” former – and current – Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti wrote in his book ‘Quiet Leadership’. “A leader with strong character, who is never scared, never worried, and always positive.”
