Sergio Ramos will leave Real Madrid at the end of the month after 16 years at the Bernabeu, with the club confirming he will be given a farewell ceremony on Thursday.

The veteran centre-back is out of contract on June 30 and talks with the club over an extension hit an impasse long ago, with the 35-year-old unwilling to accept a 10% reduction in salary.

Ramos had also wanted a two-year deal, which Real were unwilling to sanction, and the defender has therefore opted to leave the Bernabeu on a free transfer.

Real Madrid confirmed that Ramos would be leaving on Wednesday evening and he will hold a farewell press conference tomorrow.
