German publication Der Spiegel released another part of their Football Leaks series, claiming Ramos failed a drug test after the 4-1 win over Juventus in the 2017 final.

The report claims the Spanish defender did not declare he had taken dexamethasone ahead of the final in Cardiff.

Los Blancos released a statement on Friday evening deny the accusations published in the German publication.

The statement read,"In relation to the information published by Der Spiegel referring to our captain Sergio Ramos, the club states the following: 

1. Sergio Ramos has never breached the anti-doping control regulations. 

2. UEFA requested timely information and closed the matter immediately, as is usual in these cases, after verification by the experts themselves of the World Anti-Doping Agency, AMA, and of UEFA itself. 

3. Regarding the rest of the content of the aforementioned publication, the club does not pronounce itself before the evidence of its insubstantial nature.
