Much of the list is made up of the experienced defender’s glittering list of achievements, both personally and with his club and country.
Scoring 100 goals in 660 appearances for Los Blancos and he has won 22 trophies for the club including five La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns.
Real Madrid news recently has focused on the concern for the club in the position, particularly when Ramos is absent, with it being highlighted how Madrid have lost seven of their last nine matches in Europe without the central defender.
The Spain international has missed the recent La Liga clashes against Villarreal and Alaves and also sat out the Champions League ties against Inter and Shakhtar Donestk, while he will now also sit out this weekend’s crunch league trip to his former side Sevilla.
With Ramos out of contract in the Spanish capital next summer and celebrating his 35th birthday in March, Madrid may now be beginning to plan for life without their talismanic captain, but there are plenty of reasons for his renewal.
