Most notably, Ramos played his part in Real winning four Champions League titles in recent years, and even scored in two final victories against rivals Atletico Madrid.
It’s not yet clear where Ramos will go next, but one imagines the veteran centre-back will have plenty of suitors as he remains one of the finest in Europe in his position.
