Barcelona captain Carles Puyol would love to see Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos join him at the Nou Camp.

Puyol has nominated Ramos as the player to succeed him at the heart of Barca's defence.

"I think it would be a very complicated operation and that Madrid would be wrong to let him go," said Puyol. "But he would be a fitting heir to me.

"He is a great defender."
