Sergio Ramos's Departure From Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos is already history at Real Madrid , past, not present, of the team he has led in recent years with his captaincy and his football. At the age of 35 and after a bad season personally, his legend will continue to be written in another book whose location is unknown for now. The fact is that Ancelotti will start his new adventure without the player who made him champion in Lisbon. Here are the pros and cons of one of the summer pumps whose scope can only be determined over time. 

The pros of Ramos' goodbye

Football opportunity

Its hole, or sinkhole if you like, will allow others to grow and take on that football space left by the 4th. The optimal performance of Militao and Nacho was already seen in the final stretch of this last season , who grew up to show that with confidence its level grew exponentially. Similarly, Alaba, who can also play central, will enjoy more opportunities. Varane is anyone 's guess. Without Ramos, he could assume that leadership, the same one he already exercises in France , but his future is very up in the air. Ancelotti therefore, he will no longer have to face sitting down with a player of his weight, who may have been a substitute for sports reasons. Same problem that Luis Enrique has gotten rid of.

High tab

The Real Madrid saves which until now was one of the highest records of the workforce, in the second single step behind Bale. With the delicate economic situation of the club due to the pandemic, it is a certain relief, especially in anticipation that a mega crack ends up arriving, call it Mbappé, which will break the salary ceiling.

New leaders

After six years as captain and team and dressing room boss, it is time for other players to step up. Beyond the fact that the bracelet falls on Marcelo , who has one year left on his contract and does not start as a starter, players of the relevance of Kroos, Casemiro, Courtois or Modric will have more weight, in the same way that the Spanish nucleus of Carvajal, Nacho and Lucas , Ramos's gifted students in terms of coexistence and wardrobe management, also have the opportunity to inherit that space.

Soap operas are over

For months, and even years, they have been talking about the renewal of Ramos . A tension that has flown over the white present for too long, and that even supposed some friction from the club with Zidane as long as the Frenchman positioned himself in favor of the camero. The fact of having renewed only one year would have been the first step to start the speculation that in 2022 it would be free again. Therefore, end the tensions.

And when Sergio Ramos woke up, Real Madrid was no longer there. The first half of 2021 has been difficult and absolutely unexpected for the former Madrid captain. The Andalusian thought that, as in Augusto Monterroso's micro- story, he would meet The Dinosaur, Madrid, once his reflection time was over, no matter how long it might be. What Ramos did not expect was that " expiration date " on the renewal offer or a consummate full stop after months of hints, errors, leaks and bad luck. This is the story of a breakup.

After the controversy surrounding their latest renewal, Ramos and Real Madrid came to the current negotiation with highly studied profiles. On the one hand, the offer from China that the Andalusian had put on the table in 2019 to pressure the board had not liked the club, despite the fact that the center-back ended up signing and ensuring that "he would play for free here." On the other side, the situation of the defense of the Whites at the beginning of the season placed the Andalusian in a position of strength . Varane was far from his best moment and Militao did not live up to expectations, so the future of the center of defense continued to depend on Ramos. The one with BedsHe bet hard, but time has given and taken away reasons.


As this newspaper was able to confirm, before Christmas the footballer assured the club that if it was not possible to renew for two years, he would leave. It was a meeting, a talk, a conversation (call it what you want) face to face between Florentino and Ramos , the main and almost unique actors of this game. " Father and son," as both are always called. They have loved each other, they love each other and they will love each other, but this time they have not reached port. They will meet again, for sure.

Sergio Ramos rejected that first offer of a year with a salary reduction, which has been made to all those over 30 in the squad, and the professional relationship died there. There were no more movements by Madrid. Ramos, whose surroundings began to tempt the managers of PSG and City, expected a reaction from the club that never came and was injured. As if that were not a little misfortune, the center-back forced to add international appearances with Spain against Greece and Kosovo just before the Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool.and he relapsed from his knee problems, disappointing the noble zone of the Bernabéu and putting the first foot out of the stadium. His absence broke all the schemes and settled the idea of   the future project of the Chamartín team: Militao exploded, Nacho performed at the highest level, the signing of David Alaba was made and the club withdrew a renewal offer that the captain, on the horn, ended up accepting


“A week ago they told me it had expired. I was surprised, "Ramos himself acknowledged at yesterday's press conference, in which Florentino was not by his side, something that the central defender would have liked. The Andalusian clarified, from his point of view, some of the doubts of recent months: "I have never wanted to leave Madrid", " money was never a problem , it was a matter of years of contract, I think I have won"," I do not want confrontations "... And a resounding" sooner or later I will return."

In the Madrid directive there has been some debate regarding the decision. Among Florentino's strongest men there were votes for and against the renewal, which has caused some pressure in recent weeks. Some voices considered that losing Ramos after Zidane's departure and with Cristiano still in the fan's mind was not the best idea, even more so when in a few months the new Bernabéu will be released .

Benzema, Modric and perhaps Marcelo will be the greatest icons of that historical moment that Florentino has been waiting for years. It is his great work and he sees himself with the strength to assume it without Cristiano, without Zidane and now without Ramos, the three great exponents of his second term. On the other side of the president's table, others trusted, and trust, in the necessary change of scenery that the dressing room needs and in the project of young promises, with Militao now leading the defense. The same project for the future that blew up part of Zizou's post . In addition, the negotiations for the salary reduction for this course have been one of the main points of friction. Some considered that Ramos, who has seen his friends Modric and Lucas Vázquez renew, has not played in favor of the club in that management.
