Sergio Ramos is set to bring the curtain down on his legendary career at Real Madrid with a press conference at Valdebebas on Thursday.
After a remarkable 16 years at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the next big question is: where will Ramos be headed to next?
In spite of his injury-plagued season, in light of his hunger, ability and physicality that belies his 35 years of age, he would be a brilliant asset for any side for at least another two years.
He could move to Italy, where the taxation system is attractive, or to England, having flirted with both Manchester United and Manchester City in the past?
For now, Paris Saint-Germain do not appear to be interested and the same situation applies in China, despite Ramos having appeared to be close to a move to China two years ago.
Ramos could potentially return to Sevilla, where his wife currently lives and works. Although he would face opposition of a significant portion of the club’s fanbase, it could be a possibility.
For all of the uncertainty around his future, what seems out of the question is his retirement from football, having repeatedly stated that he still sees himself competing at the top level for years to come, as well as the fact that he is aiming to play at the World Cup in Qatar next year.
