1 January 2021. Sergio Ramos He’s facing a year when whatever comes his way is charged with positivity. Flight. Renew it with real Madrid, a club that is (and always will be) an absolute legend) and comes close to being the Real Madrid player with the most trophies. The choice is a captain, and a general.
