And Ramos was quick to pay tribute to the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, who said in an open letter it was time for a "new cycle" in his career.
"Cristiano, your goals, your numbers and everything we've won together speak for themselves," Ramos wrote on Twitter.
"You have earned a special place in the history of Real Madrid. As Madridistas we'll remember you always.
"It's been a pleasure to play alongside you. Big hug and good luck!"
