Conor McGregor Invited To Train With Real Madrid After Social Media Back And Fourth With Sergio Ramos

We all know him for his deadly left hand, but it appears Conor McGregor's left foot ain't too bad either.

And after seeing what he's got in his locker, Sergio Ramos invited McGregor to a Real Madrid training session - and the Irishman accepted.

The duo's 'bromance' over social media reached new heights when Real Madrid skipper Ramos posted a video to Instagram impersonating McGregor's famous ring walk after rifling the ball into the back of the net during a training drill.

"What do you think, @thenotoriousmma," Ramos said in the post.

As expected, the video went viral with over eight million views on Instagram.

And it got even more traction when UFC megastar McGregor responded.

"Tasty into the top corner my bro! Hala Madrid," he said.

With former two-division UFC champ McGregor's comment getting over 43,000 likes, most fans probably expected the wholesome back and fourth between two sporting giants to end there.

But this is Conor McGregor we're talking about here.

The sweet-talking, tattoo-sporting superstar took to social media on Sunday to show the world his football skills - and he's not bad at all!

In what looks like some kind of makeshift backyard field, McGregor is seen taking venomous shots at a helpless goalkeeper (poor kid) in front of friends and family in Ireland.

Doing well to maintain his balance on the slippy grass in his designer shoes, the recently-retired 32-year-old manages to find the bottom corner with a few clean left-footed strikes.

He captioned the post: "What do you think @sergioramos?"

And, of course, the Spaniard replied.

"Class, mate!" Ramos said.

"Fancy a training session at @realmadrid? More than welcome to join us anytime."

While McGregor has been know to dabble in other sports, it appears he's keen to take the Spanish World Cup winner up on his classy offer.

"My brother, thank you," McGregor replied.

"The next time I am in Madrid I would be honoured."

With a young family to look after and a multi-million-dollar whiskey company to run, it remains to be seen whether 'Mystic Mac' will ever step inside the octagon again following his 40-second demolition job of Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone back in January.

For die-hard fight fanatics, witnessing the Irishman lace up MMA gloves one last time would be the ultimate dream.

But for the more skeptical sports supporters, seeing McGregor don the famous all-white strip of Real Madrid alongside the likes of Ramos, Gareth Bale and Zinedine Zidane would be iconic.

Whatever he does, you can guarantee people will be watching.
