Real Madrid star Ronaldo invites Ramos anger over Florentino recommendation

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is pushing president Florentino Perez to make a late signing.

And the Portuguese is ready to go against the opinion of captain Sergio Ramos to see Real's squad strengthened before next week's transfer deadline.

Diario Sport says Ronaldo, assessing the makeup of Real's team as he works his way through a late preseason, believes they're a centre-half short.

Like coach Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo isn't convinced by Jesus Vallejo and believes a more experienced centre-half needs to be added. A view not shared by Ramos.

And Real's No7 has expressed his concerns to president Perez in recent days, urging him to move for an option like Aymeric Laporte (Athletic Bilbao) or Marquinhos (PSG) before next week's deadline.
