Sergio Ramos tells Man Utd star Paul Pogba door is open for Real Madrid move – EXCLUSIVE | Football | Sport
Paul Pogba has been told the ‘door is open’ for a move to the Bernabeu by Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos.
The Manchester United midfielder attempted to push through a transfer this summer but Old Trafford bosses stood firm and kept hold of their £89million man.
However, Ramos would like to see the Frenchman join him in La Liga in the near future.
“I think Real Madrid always has the door open for good players such as him,” Ramos told Express Sport.
Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has been heavily backed in his second stint at the Spanish giants.
Over £270million was splashed out on the likes of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Eder Miliao ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
But Ramos still feels Pogba would bring much-needed attacking quality to Los Blancos, who have won just one of their opening three league games.
He added: “For me, Pogba is one of the great players.
“He is different and he has shown his value at Juventus and now Manchester United.
“I think he brings balance to a team. He has a great offensive influence and he has this amazing physique.”
Meanwhile, Ramos also opened up on the public perception that he is master of the dark arts.
The centre-back came under fire for injuring Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah in the 2018 Champions League final, which Madrid won 3-1.
Ramos said: “I respect everybody’s opinion and it is true that sometimes people misjudge me.
“When I play against a tough rival is the most thrilling thing that can happen to me and something that I look forward to.
“When you have to go against a nice forward player or striker you have this nice duel and of course inside the right context where you don’t want to harm anyone, and with the right intention and the right heart.
“It is a game, you go to win and try to defend yourself but always inside you have respect.”
Ramos was speaking at the premiere of his new Amazon Prime docuseries, El Corazon de Sergio Ramos, which will be released on September 13.
