The veteran defender is set to end his 16-year association with Los Blancos and receive a special farewell from the club.
According to ABC, Sergio Ramos will not sign a contract extension with Real Madrid, meaning he will become a free agent once his deal with the club expires.
Real Madrid is planning a special farewell for their club captain, during which he will be pictured alongside the 22 trophies he has won in his time in the Spanish capital.
Sergio Ramos joined Real Madrid from Sevilla in the summer of 2005. The 35-year-old developed into one of the best defenders of his generation during his time with Los Blancos.

Sergio Ramos played a massive role in Real Madrid’s La Liga triumph under Zinedine Zidane in the 2019-20 season.
His impact was limited during the course of the 2020-21 season due to several injuries. Ramos made just 21 appearances in all competitions for the club this season.
His lack of match fitness resulted in him being left out of Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for Euro 2020.
Real Madrid was reportedly keen to extend Sergio Ramos’ contract with the club. The Real Madrid captain was looking for a two-year deal with an increase in his current salary.
But Los Blancos were only willing to offer a one-year extension due to their strict policy of handing one-year deals to players above 30.
Sergio Ramos has firmly established himself as a club legend and one of the greatest players ever to represent Real Madrid.
Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos is unlikely to be short of suitors this summer. Manchester United, Manchester City, and PSG have monitored the veteran defender’s contract situation with Real Madrid.
Sergio Ramos has expressed an interest in playing in the Premier League in the past. Despite approaching the latter stages of his career, Ramos has proven that he still has the ability to perform at the highest level.
