Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Majo has revealed he has been offered the opportunity to sign Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos to boost his election campaign.

Majo is one of five people in the running to replace Josep Maria Bartomeu, who is standing for re-election.

Bartomeu and former president Joan Laporta are considered the main candidates to win the election that will be held on July 18 at the Nou Camp.

"Ramos has been offered to us for some time as an electoral opportunity," Majo said to the Spanish press on Friday. "We don't know if he has been offered to others (other candidates).

"But we are not going to play that game.

"We are not going to be the reason for Sergio Ramos and his brother to increase his value at Real Madrid.

"In our case, we totally discarded it."
