Sergio Ramos will leave Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos is leaving Real Madrid after 16 years with Los Blancos, the club has confirmed.


The Spanish giants also announced a press conference will be held on Thursday, to bid farewell to the defender.


Ramos’ contract expires at the end of June and there have been reports Real were willing to give him an extension if he accepted a pay cut.


But the 35-year-old has decided to leave Santiago Bernabeu after 16 years.


“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,” an official statement read.


Ramos, 35, has struggled with injuries this season and has played just five times since the start of the year.


Ramos’ 21 appearances for Real Madrid in all competitions is his lowest in 15 seasons playing for the club.


The Spaniard joined Madrid from Sevilla in 2005 and is one of the club’s most successful ever players, having won five La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues and two Copas del Rey
