Like Messi, Ramos has also moved to Paris this summer and welcomed his former rival with open arms at the training ground.
The two players have continuously clashed in the El Classico for over a decade however they have now both joined forces to make up one of the most sensational Galactico squads in recent memory.
According to the Spanish publication El Pais, Ramos has even told Messi that he is welcome to bring his family to his home in Paris if he does not want to stay in a hotel.

Whilst Messi and Ramos are both not fit to start the season, the Argentinian superstar has spoken of his excitement of arriving in Paris: “I’m so happy to be here. I have a will to play and I still want to play and win as much as I wanted it at the first moment of my career.
“This club is ready to fight for all the trophies. This is my goal, to keep growing, keep winning titles and that’s why I’ve come here to this club. I hope we can make it happen.”
