There has been a lot of talk about Mourinho wanting to sign a right back instead of a center back (which I believe we should) and then put Sergio Ramos in the center with someone new on the right.

There has been a host of players being linked to Real Madrid which is always the case, no surprises there. Top name is Maicon, though I would love Real Madrid to consider Bosingwa as well. What Real Madrid really need is a left back. Lahm would have been a good choice or Fillipe Luis, who I think is far better than both Marceloa and Arbeloa.

Anyway, here is why I think it would not be in Real Madrid’s best interest to have Sergio Ramos as a center back instead of a right back:

  1. He would not have the space to showcase and unleash his creativity which has helped Real Madrid time and time again, especially in away games where Sergio Ramosdoesa trick or two, bombs down the right and puts in those menacing crosses like hell. If he is put to center back position then obviously that would not be possible, even it is possible then he would not be allowed to do that often.
  2. By having him as the right back, we would get an added advantage of a right back being good in the air which is a rarity I think. That would give us some more strength while defending air balls. Sign a quality center back, Lucio would be my choiceandletRamosplayontheright.
