Real Madrid plans to undermine the power of Manchester City. They intend to hijack the two main ManCity players in the near future.
In the near future, ManCity wants to sign Manchester City full-back, Joao Cancelo. This plan comes after Ferlan Mendy’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu is unclear.
Mendy’s contract will expire in the summer of 2023. There has been no sign from Mendy to extend his tenure at the Santiago Bernabeu. This condition is enough to make Madrid anxious.
1. Cancelo is stunning
Therefore, Cancelo was targeted by Madrid as a replacement for Mendy. Cancelo’s consistent performance has captivated the Los Blancos management.
In addition, Cancelo also has advantages, namely versatility. Actually Cancelo is a right-wing defender. However, Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, replaced him as a left back.
A decision that bore fruit because Cancelo played so fluently and tactically as a left wing-back. Moreover, he is so smart and can be a creator in the ManCity game.
2. Madrid lost to Manchester City
Not only Cancelo, Madrid’s management also wants to target ManCity striker Erling Braut Haaland. AS launched, Haaland has long been targeted by Madrid.
However, in the summer of 2022, they lost to ManCity. However, Haaland will not be targeted in the 2023 summer transfer market, but in 2024.
3. Madrid was once considered Haaland
There is real potential for Madrid to sign Haaland. Because, Haaland’s father, Alf Inge, stated that Madrid was once considered one of his son’s destinations.
“ManCity is the best, Bayern Munich is second. Real Madrid is third, and Paris Saint-Germain is fourth,” said Alf Inge.
