Real Madrid midfielder Guti has declared that he would love to see veteran Brazilian full-back Roberto Carlos return to the Bernabeu.

Carlos stated earlier this week that he would play for Madrid for free after leaving Fenerbahce at the end of the season and now his former Blancos team-mate has said he is in favor of the idea.

"Roberto is a great left sided player. I'd welcome him with open arms. We would be delighted if he comes, but it's up to the club," Guti told AS.

On his own role at the club, Guti admits he is surprised to be playing as much as he has so far this season. He said it is getting harder to make the first eleven and added that he may still play for another club, even though the soon to be 33-year-old has two years remaining on his current deal.

"Every year is more difficult because some great players come in, but as long as I feel I am useful in Madrid I will stay.

"I've said on some occasions I would like to play in England someday, we'll see. There are also exotic leagues, besides playing, you can learn about other cultures. There are clubs which I could not play for and Atletico [Madrid] and Barcelona are two of them."
