Reports over the weekend have suggested that Malaga’s playmaker Isco has agreed a deal to move across to the Santiago Bernabeu for next season, where he will find an enthusiastic new teammate in Ramos.
“Isco is a great player and anything that can strengthen us when playing at the highest level is always a positive,” Ramos reflected on Onda Cero this week.
The defender was talking after helping Spain reach the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup, where thanks to a 3-0 win against Nigeria that guaranteed top spot in Group B, they will face Group A runners-up Italy.
“It would be a dream to play in the final at Maracana against Brazil, but first we must win against Italy.
“Italy brings us good memories, it is a team that we know perfectly. They are a great team, hopefully it will be a nice game.
“Against Nigeria the team did a great job. We have suffered a significant physical toll, but we will do the necessary work so as to be at our best for the next game.
“Going forward we have played that make a difference, when they have an opportunity they rarely fail.”
