Sergio Ramos has officially left Real Madrid, as his farewell press conference was held on Thursday.
After 16 glorious years at Spanish capital, the 35-year-old leaves the club, with his future still uncertain.
Ramos revealed he ended up accepting Los Blancos’ offer of a one-year contract on a reduced wage, but it was ‘too late’, and he will now move on for free when his contract expires at the end of this month.
However, the Spanish international could have left the club previously, in 2015 in particular, when he was offered the chance to join Manchester United.
“Did I feel cheated [by Madrid]? No, but I did feel disappointed for a while. There were some troubles that came to an end. Flattery from big clubs is always good as this is because you are doing well, but the fans and my club want me.”
The Los Blancos skipper has already ruled out Barcelona and Sevilla as potential destinations, meaning he is almost certain to leave La Liga having spent all of his career in his homeland.
