During the summer of 2005, Ramos made the move over to Real Madrid. He played well for the club but was not yet the star we know him as today. Playing primarily center defender, Ramos struggled early but learned quickly, helping Real Madrid win the Liga title in 2007.
At this point, Ramos had also been selected to play for the Spanish national team. When he made his first appearance with the team, he became the youngest player at the time to do so. When the 2006 world cup came around, he became Spain’s first choice as right back defender.
Ramos really began to hit his stride in 2008. The center defender, with his unusual knack for scoring goals as a defender, propelled his team to victory in the 2008 Supercopa de Espana. For the 2008 UEFA Cup, Ramos was a regular of the starting 11, pushing his team to the eventual win over Germany. At the end of the season Ramos was named to both the UEFA and FIFA Team of the Year. Between 2005-09, Ramos scored 24 goals.

Along with the recently acquired Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka, Real Madrid were expected to be the favorite to win the league title, but failed to do so. With a new manager for the 2010 campaign, Real Madrid played to expectations, taking home the Copa del Rey.
For the 2010 World Cup, Ramos played every minute of the tournament, leading the team to victory over the Netherlands, 1-0, in the final. In his following Real Madrid season, the new world champion led his team to the La Liga championship title. At this point, Ramos was hailed as one of the best defenders in all of professional soccer.

As well as the 2012 UEFA cup with Spain’s national team.
Ramos is without a doubt one of the greatest defenders to have ever played the games, and he’s still going. He will be a part of his third World Cup team for 2018, and is signed with Real Madrid through 2020.
