Sergio Ramos' exit from Real Madrid has been confirmed.

The 35-year-old will leave the Spanish giants after 16 years at the club, during which time he has won 22 trophies.

Ramos established himself as one of the best defenders in the world during his lengthy stay at the Bernabeu Stadium but has now chosen to seek a new challenge away from the club.

Speculation had been building surrounding his future after failing to agree a deal on a new contract, which will result in the Spaniard leaving the club for free.

But where will could Ramos end up next?

Daily Star Sport have explored his possible options below..

Manchester United

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Ramos' Real Madrid teammate Raphael Varane, but would be unlikely to pass up on the chance to sign Ramos on a free transfer..

United are searching for a central defender to pair Harry Maguire, with Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly not considered ideal partners for the England international.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still in search of his first trophy as manager of the team and would certainly benefit from Ramos' winning mentality, which is currently lacking.

Chelsea's purchase of Thiago Silva last summer has proven that experienced figures past their peak can still have a significant impact on a team.

PSG

Where do you think Sergio Ramos will end up? Comment below.

PSG's summer window has got off to a good start following the arrival of Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum on a free transfer – and Mauricio Pochettino may now be eyeing up a second bargain option.

Ramos would certainly be able to adapt to the pace and standard of Ligue 1 having competed in La Liga and could form an effective relationship with Marquinhos or Presnel Kimpembe.

The French giants would certainly be able to afford the high wage demands that the 35-year-old is likely to demand, making this move a real possibility.

Juventus

Ramos could follow in the footsteps of former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo by joining Juventus from Madrid.

The Serie A outfit slumped to a hugely disappointing fourth-placed league finish this season and will be looking to issue a response next campaign.

Massimiliano Allegri is back in charge at the club and will have identified players capable of reclaiming the title.

Juventus are known for their defensive qualities, but have conceded 30 goals or more in the past two seasons – something that hadn't previously occurred since the 2010/11 campaign.

Ramos could be a perfect leader to aid the development of Matthijs de Ligt.

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola had many battles with Ramos during his time at Barcelona, but may be willing to put that behind him when considering a transfer.

There is growing speculation that Aymeric Laporte could be leaving the club this summer, making this a position that may need addressing.

Like PSG, the Sky Blues would have no trouble matching any financial demands that Ramos may have.

Sevilla

A return to boyhood club Sevilla could be a tempting proposition for the five-time La Liga winner.

Ramos progressed through the club's academy as a youngster and left Sevilla for Madrid back in 2005.

Now approaching the end of his playing career, this move would enable the experienced defender to remain settled in his home country.

But Sevilla supporters may not be as supportive of a reunion, having held a grudge against Ramos ever since he left the club 16 years ago for the way his departure occurred.

Ramos, on the other hand, has already made clear his feelings for the club. He told ABC in 2015: “I’m Sevillista and I will be to the death.

"When I die, there will be two flags on my grave, one of Sevilla and the other of Madrid.”
