Real Madrid’s triumph over Borussia Dortmund last night at Wembley meant Los Blancos have now sealed the prestigious Champions League trophy for a record 15th time.

For many of the Real Madrid stars, it was the sixth individual UCL triumph, which is a feat of its own. Reacting to Real Madrid’s win last night, a slew of former players congratulated the team on this historic achievement.

Sergio Ramos & Varane on Real Madrid’s UCL triumph

Among the former players congratulating Real Madrid were the former centre-back pairing of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.

Most recently plying his trade for Sevilla, Ramos posted a photo of four of his former teammates Dani Carvajal, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Ramos highlighted the fact that each of them has won six UCL titles, amounting to a combined tally of 24 titles.

Reacting to a post about Real Madrid winning the 15th UCL title, Ramos also tweeted, “A true love story. Don’t try to understand it. Congratulations.”

Raphael Varane, meanwhile, revealed that he was in the stadium to watch the final against Borussia Dortmund.

Currently plying his trade for Manchester United, Varane posted a photo with his kid, who was wearing the Real Madrid shirt. “Hala Madrid, again and again. The 15th is already here,” he wrote on Instagram.

It must be noted that both Varane and Sergio Ramos are set to become free agents this summer, as both their contracts with their respective clubs will expire at the end of the season.

Given their strong ties with Real Madrid, a fan can be forgiven for wanting both to make a sensational return to Santiago Bernabeu next season.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
