CONOR MCGREGOR is set for some rough and tumble with the Real Madrid squad after accepting Sergio Ramos’ invite to train with the squad.
The retired UFC superstar was invited to head to the Spanish capital after showing off his footy skills on social media.
It all started after Ramos impersonated McGregor’s iconic strut after scoring a screamer in training before asking the Notorious on his opinion.
McGregor, 32, then responded by showing him a video of himself burying a few shots in the bottom corner.
Ramos responded: “Class, mate! Fancy a training session at Madrid?
“More than welcome to join us at anytime.”
Not one to turn down an opportunity, McGregor responded: “My brother, thank you.
“Next time I am in Madrid, I will be honoured.”
McGregor has previous experience in football following his spells for amateur sides Slieveamon United and Yellowstone Celtic before becoming a star in the Octagon.
Speaking last year, he said: “Throughout my youth, I was big into football.
“I played striker or midfielder. If you were to sum me up as a player, I was efficient, devastating and slick – similar to my fighting style.
“Skills learned at this youthful age playing football – teamwork, leadership, commitment, dedication and discipline – without a doubt transferred over into my combat sports vocation.”

And he is now on his latest venture after helping set up a local pub team called Black Forge FC in Dublin.
McGregor recently spent his birthday recently in France with partner Dee Devlin, but teased a comeback by commenting “stay ready” on his Instagram.
The southpaw has not fought since beating Donald Cerrone in January before announcing his retirement in June.
