​​Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has declared Neymar to be one of the top three players in the world as ​speculation with regards to the Brazilian's move to Los Blancos grows towards the closing of the summer transfer window.

Madrid are reportedly in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over the transfer of the Brazilian forward and could beat Barcelona to his signature and as reported by ​Marca, Ramos spoke highly of Neymar after his team's 1-1 draw against Real Valladolid in ​La Liga on Saturday.

He started by stating, "Neymar is a top player, among the top three in the world."

The Spanish national team's captain continued, "Talking about signings is a lack of respect for this great team. These things are always talked about at Real Madrid and even more so when the transfer window is open. Players must be cold with these things."

Revealing what currently needs to be done after a busy summer transfer window, Ramos stated, "We're going to move forward with those that we have. We all need to be connected. Reactivating players like [Gareth] Bale or James [Rodriguez] is another solution."

Finally talking about the drawn match, Ramos concluded, "It hurts (the draw) because it was the first match at the Bernabeu and we wanted to play well and dedicate a victory to the fans."
