Could Manchester City and Real Madrid be set to battle it out off the pitch this summer?

Next month will see Manchester City and Real Madrid battle it out in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. The two sides have faced off in the previous two seasons in the semi-finals of the competition. Their rivalry has grown into a hotly contested one ahead of next month’s fixtures. But could the two teams also be set for a battle this summer for the signature of Bayern Munich star Jamal Musiala?

Fichajes reports that the world champions have closely monitored Jamal Musiala for some time. They further report that Manchester City could make a move for Musiala this summer. Furthermore, Fichajes reports that City would face stiff competition from Real Madrid for the signature of Musiala.

It is no surprise to see Manchester City and Real Madrid linked to a player of Jamal Musiala’s calibre. The playmaker is one of the elite young attacking midfielders in European football. Given his impressive performances for Bayern Munich, he appears to be the ideal player to slot in either in Pep Guardiola’s squad or with Carlo Ancelotti’s men. With his proven pedigree and immense potential, he does appear an ideal candidate for both teams. If he does become available, it would be expected that two of Europe’s biggest clubs will be at the front of the queue for his signature.

Manchester City and Real Madrid have become rivals on the pitch in recent seasons. It now appears that their rivalry may now move to off-field matters based on the report from Fichajes. It is no surprise to see that the two clubs appear set to battle it out for one of Europe’s hottest young prospects. Given the two clubs standing in the game, it may also become a fixture of transfer windows in the future.
