Sergio Ramos is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders in the world, if not in history itself. The Real Madrid captain is famed for his aggression, goalscoring ability and Panenka penalty-kicks.
The Spaniard has won 21 major honours in his career, including four Champions League and La Liga titles. He’s also made the FIFPro World11 a record ten times for a defender.

How does Ramos spend his money?
Sergio Ramos and his wife, Pilar Rubio, purchased a plot of land in the La Moraleja area of Madrid in 2017 for a reported €4.2m. They’ve since invested a further €12m to build a new mansion. And while the couple have released no details, Spanish TV programme ‘Ya es mediodía’ obtained images (via AS Diario).
Ramos, meanwhile, has closely observed the construction of his new 1,500-square-metre residence. Apparently, the 34-year-old visits every day for updates on its progress. He also reportedly owns another two mansions in Spain. So he won’t be going homeless anytime soon.
