The story of denying their neighbours the chance to lift the trophy for the first time. The constant battles with Barcelona, Ramos’ part in the Clasico rivalry, the countless inspirational messages to supporters, bleeding white, not red, for the club.
He fought his way into the centre of defence after playing as right back in his early years at the club, but once he earned his place, he was impossible to shift.
It was September 2005 when Ramos made his debut for Madrid, as a substitute under coach Wanderley Luxemburgo, replacing Francisco Pavon in a 3-2 defeat by Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu. There were high hopes for him then, having arrived for €27 million from Sevilla, but he has surpassed every expectation by a distance.
That summer, Ramos toyed with leaving, potentially joining Manchester United, although he eventually used their interest to eke more money from Madrid. The mood turned against him in the capital, but only very briefly. Going to war with Perez does not upset a fanbase who have often chanted for the president to resign.
