Manchester United target Sergio Ramos has ruled out a move to two La Liga clubs after his Real Madrid exit was confirmed.
The Spaniard is set to leave the Bernabeu at the end of his contract this month, having spent 16 seasons with the club and won 21 major titles.
It has seen several clubs get linked with the 2010 World Cup and two-time Euro winner, including the Red Devils after months of trying to start talks.
But also among the interested parties have been El Clasico rivals Barcelona as well as the defender’s former side Sevilla.
Ramos, though, has said very directly that he will not consider either of the two La Liga sides.
In quotes shared via transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Ramos said: “I’m not joining Sevilla, this is not even an option.
“Barcelona? Impossible. You’ll never see me at Barca.”
Ramos faced the Nou Camp side in El Clasico 43 times, scoring five goals as he helped to record 15 wins from those matches.
But the standout stat from his matches against Barcelona comes in discipline, picking up 19 yellow cards, two reds and three straight reds.

While his career started in the south of Spain with Sevilla, graduating from the academy in 2003 to make 50 appearances.
Ramos’ availability has also reportedly piqued the interest of PSG, Juventus and United’s rivals Manchester City.
But the 35-year-old is not giving anything away, adding: “I don't know which club I'm joining yet. When I'll know, I'll be the first to announce it.
“It’s not time to talk about my future.”
Before a meeting between the Red Devils and Los Blancos in 2013, Ramos revealed that his father, Jose Maria, was a fan of his opponents at the time.
When asked by The Times which team his dad supports, he replied: "United. My family are Sevilla fans but he always had a soft spot for Manchester United."
