Andres Iniesta says he would like to play alongside Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and Malaga attacker Isco at Barcelona.

Andres Iniesta says he would like to play alongside Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and Malaga attacker Isco at Barcelona.

The Barca star has played alongside Ramos in the Spain national side for years, while Rosaleda starlet Isco has been impressive form this season.

When asked at the sixth edition of the World Sports Gala who he would like to bring to Barcelona, Iniesta rooted for his two compatriots.

“I’ve always liked Sergio Ramos,” he told Mundo Deportivo. “He’s very impressive. And I like to look at the upcoming players, such as Isco.”

Iniesta said he misses working with Pep Guardiola, who left Camp Nou as head coach last year, and admitted it is difficult working without current boss Tito Vilanova, who is absent due to his recovery from cancer treatment.

“I do miss Guardiola because I like working with people who have done great things and he did,” the Ballon d’Or nominee said.

“It becomes more complicated without Vilanova, but we are all working hard. I hope everything goes well.”

The 28-year-old has helped Barca comfortably top La Liga, and Iniesta reiterated his desire to remain at Camp Nou for the entirety of his professional career.

“I want to improve every year,” he added. “To maintain our level and compete with the others (at Barca), I have to be the best.

“My desire has always been to finish my career at the club. I feel very good here. I’ve been here for 12 years and I want to retire here, but my performance will decide if that happens.

“When two parties want the same thing, it should not be a problem.”
