The 48-year-old who won two Spanish League titles during his five-year reign with the Blaugrana spoke to Betfair on the topic as reported by SunSport saying:

"A player has to be professional, and if you have good offers, I don't think it's okay to hear them.
"Of course, Sergio Ramos would be a good signing for Barcelona. It would be historic and it would be controversial because of Sergio Ramos' history with Real Madrid."

Meanwhile, it might be very difficult for Ramos to join a rival club having given 16 years of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spanish defender has won four Champions Leagues, five La Ligas, and several other domestic and continental silverware since he joined them in 2005.

He (Ramos) has also won the FIFA World Cup and two UEFA European championships in 2008 and in 2012. earlier reported that Sergio Ramos has promised to accommodate Lionel Messi in his home if the Argentine decides to join Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old's future at Barcelona remains uncertain despite having about three months left on his current deal.

He tried forcing his way out of the Catalan club last August but made a U-turn to avoid legal battles with his employers.
