Sergio Ramos has lavished praise on Cristiano Ronaldo, calling his Real Madrid teammate 'the best in the world'.
The Portugal interational has been linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu this summer, with the 28-year-old's contract at the club set to run out in 2015.
And the Spanish full-back has admitted that he is desperate for the forward to renew at Los Blancos.
“Last season, for me, he was the best in the world,” Ramos told Mundo Deportivo. “He deserves to win whatever he wants to win.
“I hope the club directors are trying to renew his deal to keep him at Madrid.”
