Ramos excited by Isco to Madrid rumors

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has lauded Malaga starlet Isco's abilities amid speculation linking the youngster with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Premier League giants Manchester City is locked in a battle with Madrid for the 21-year-old's signature, and Ramos is convinced he would make a great addition to the Blancos squad should he opt to move to the Spanish capital.

"Isco is a great player and we always aspire to reinforce with the best. It's a joy [to hear rumors of a transfer]," the experienced stopper told Onda Cero.

Ramos is currently preparing for Spain's Confederations Cup semi-final with Italy on Thursday, and while he is relishing the prospect of facing hosts Brazil in the final, the 27-year-old has warned his side to be on point against the Azzurri.

"It'd be a dream to play a final with Brazil in Maracana but before you get to that stage you have to play the semifinal against Italy," Ramos continued. "Italy bring us good memories, they are a great team, it will hopefully be a nice game.

"We want
to be the champions but we will have to approach the match very humbly with a lot of respect for our opponents."
