Brazilian Ronaldo wants Coutinho at RM

Former Brazilian superstar Ronaldo has declared that he would like to see Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho join Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old playmaker has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain in recent months but is under contract at Anfield until 2020, although former Madrid striker Ronaldo would love to see his old club make a move for his compatriot.

"I would like to see Coutinho at Real Madrid, the Liverpool player," Ronaldo told Onda Cero when asked who he wants to see Madrid sign.

The 40-year-old also said he believes that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world at the minute, just pipping Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

"They are three great players,"  continued Ronaldo.

"I would also include Luis Suarez as he is playing very well. This is the most common question in all interviews – I don't know if it is just for me, or for everyone, but when we ask this question we forget that they are three great players.

"It is so difficult to choose just one as the best. They are very, very good. At the moment I will choose Cristiano as he is playing for Real Madrid, but we cannot forget how good Messi and Neymar are, and we must respect these players for the entertainment they bring us."
