After being out of the game for some weeks due to a muscular injury in his left leg, further misery has been added to Sergio Ramos’s season as he has tested positive for Covid-19.

This setback however does not makes any difference for the tie against Liverpool as he was not included in the squad due the muscle injury incurred on 1st April while he was on international duty.

He will not be traveling with the squad to support his teammates for the second leg of UEFA Champions League quarterfinal as he will be home quarantined for a period of 7 days .

Last week another Real Madrid player Raphael Varane was out of the squad because he also tested positive for this virus on game day against Liverpool.

Sergio Ramos has been an integral part of both Real Madrid and Spain over the last decade.

Ever since the departure of Iker Casillas, he has captained the Real Madrid side which went on to win 3 Champions League in a row, a feat which was never accomplished before.

The bad news for Real Madrid fans is that a lot of reports in Spain suggests that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season as his contract expires this summer. It will be a big loss for the club as whenever the 35- year old footballer is not on the pitch, Real Madrid fails to play the brand of football they are expected to play.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will do whatever is there in his power to renew his contract but the chances are very slim as for years Sergio Ramos has made it clear that he someday wants a  new adventure
