Ramos leaves the club having won four Champions League titles, five Liga trophies and two Copa del Rey titles, being Real Madrid’s second most honored player just behind Paco Gento.

The defender signed for Real Madrid in 2005 and became the best defender to ever wear the club’s white shirt. His leadership skills and his natural ability to perform at the big stage will go down in history.
