Guti believes that Francesco Totti would not get a first-team place at Real Madrid because the club already have the best players in the world in his position.

Speculation that the Roma skipper could be joining Madrid at the end of the season, has been rife in recent days.

However, Guti believes that in Zinedine Zidane and Raul, Madrid already possess the best playmakersin the world.

“There would not be a space (for Totti), we already have the best in the world, Zidane and Raul,” stated the 27-year-old.

Guti has formed a combative midfield partnership with David Beckham this season, but the Spanish international insists he is happy to sacrifice his creative contribution for the sake of the team.

“I am very happy to be playing and bringing things to the team,’ Guti added

“I’m back into the groove, feeling fit and have adjusted on the field of play.

“I’m now in a position where I have to sacrifice myself for the team and shine less, but the important thing is to be first choice.

“Although others are taking the glory it’s a luxury to be in the starting XI.

“I am very different to Makelele, but Beckham and I understand each other very well.

“We are creative, but we press defensively to help the team.”
