Former-Real Madrid star Guti thinks Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could play together on the same team.

The recently retired Spain international is keen to swap his boots for the boardroom, and is looking for a role as a sporting director.

And the Bernabeu legend revealed he would have no problem finding room for the world's two best players on his team.

"Who I would sign out of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi? Whoever would come," Guti told Spanish newspaper Marca.

"They are both a cut above, they're the best in the world. If I could have both of them, I would. I believe they could play alongside each other, because they don't play the same position."

Ronaldo and Messi traded goals in last weekend's El Clasico at the Nou Camp. The 2-2 draw split the four goals between the two main Ballon d'Or candidates in a thoroughly entertaining La Liga match.

But the draw kept Barcelona eight points clear of Real Madrid. While still early in the season, Jose Mourinho will be concerned with his side's form, while in contrast new Barca boss Tito Vilanova will be satisfied with his side's fast start.

Messi and Ronaldo ran away with the Pichichi top-scorer award race last season, and the two superstars already have eight goals each.

But they have company this season - Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao also has eight goals already this campaign, and the Colombian forward has admitted he's looking to challenge the Messi and Ronaldo La Liga stranglehold.
