Former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has revealed his desire to play alongside Kylian Mbappe in Paris Saint-Germain.
Ramos hailed Mbappe as one of the best footballers in the world, and as such, he would like to play alongside the 22-year-old forward.
Spanish Giants Real Madrid make for a long-term admirer of Mbappe and are said to be monitoring his contract situation at PSG.
When asked if he would advise Mbappe to make the switch to the Spanish side, Ramos answered in the affirmative but stated his desire to see the Frenchman stay.
Ramos admitted that great players have to play in Real Madrid, but he wants Mbappe in his team. Ramos reiterated his desire to win, and for that, he needs great players like the 22-year-old striker.
Sergio Ramos left Real Madrid at the end of last season after his contract was allowed to wind down. According to Ramos, he was offered a contract renewal at Madrid, but he waited too long to accept the offer.
When he was pressed on the possibility of Madrid doing more to keep him at the Bernabeu, he replied that he couldn't answer the question. Ramos instead chose to focus on the new project with PSG and how he was easily swayed by the French club despite having other suitors offers from Spanish teams.
Ramos said PSG's sports project, coupled with his adventurous nature, helped him decide on the French club. He also acknowledged the affection he got from club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, Coach Pochettino and the board in general.
Paris Saint-Germain would be looking to go a step forward by winning the Champions League next season.
