Back in 2009 Sergio Ramos revealed his dream of patrolling the Real Madrid midfield despite the fact that the Spanish giants signed the Spain international from Sevilla for his defensive qualities. Ramos had started out at right-back but soon adjusted to become a stubborn centre-back, one who was occasionally used as a defensive midfielder by Juan Ramon Lopez Caro and Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

"I am improving and I practice a lot in training, but I am not [David] Beckham," he told Spanish newspaper...
