Ramos keen on Reyes Real Madrid switch

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos wants his friend and Spain colleague Jose Antonio Reyes to join him at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Reyes has been linked with a move back to his homeland for over a year with contradictory quotes coming from the player himself.

Arsenal are reluctant to sell and while Madrid are thought to be interested, no firm bid has been forthcoming from Spain.

And defender Ramos, who like Reyes started his career with Sevilla, believes the forward would be a good addition to Fabio Capello's squad.

'We all know Reyes and we know he is a great player,' Ramos told the club's website.

'For me it would be be a joy if he signed for us.

'At the moment he has not said anything and we do not know what will happen. These are things he will have to decide but he would be a good addition to our team.

'I have said to him that although I have only been here a short time it is a beautiful city, and that not every player is lucky enough to have the chance to sign for the best team in the world because every player wants to play here.'

Ramos revealed his own future is being discussed with the club.

The 20-year-old took time to settle in his first season after moving to Madrid for nearly £20million last summer but has been linked with a move to England.

However, Ramos insists he is happy in the Spanish capital.

'The interest of great clubs is always flattering. I am proud to belong to the best team in the world and if everything continues to go well I will be very happy to continue here.'

The right-sided defender confirmed his advisors are discussing a new deal with sporting director Pedrag Mijatovic.

'I have given my all this year. My brother and my representative are speaking with Pedja and I trust him totally.'
