Real Madrid are reportedly keeping close tabs on Manchester City’s greatest talent. Los Blancos are keen on acquiring the midfielder next summer.

It seems like Real Madrid has adopted an entirely new recruitment and transfer policy over the last few years. From just signing galacticos for enormous sums, Los Blancos have now turned their attention towards signing younger players with immense potential. Players such as Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, Ferland Mendy, Brahim, Luka Jovic, and so on are prime examples.

Having said that, a report from the Mirror states that Real Madrid has their eyes set on one of the most promising midfield talents. The player in question is Phil Foden of Manchester City. The England international is reportedly concerned over the lack of game-time at the Etihad Stadium.

Meanwhile, according to the report by Mirror, Real are confident about signing Foden next summer if his current situation at the club worsens. However, a move to the Santiago Bernabeu certainly won’t benefit Foden in any way as he might face the same situation he already does at Manchester City.

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric will remain as undisputable starters next season as well, meanwhile, players such as Federico Valverde and Martin Odegaard would also have an important role during rotations.

Eduardo Camavinga has also been shortlisted as a potential signing and several top sources have confirmed that Los Blancos will go all-in for the Frenchman next season. Having said that, the competition at Real is equally difficult as it is at Man City for Foden. Foden’s potential move to Real Madrid next summer could turn out to be something as similar to Luka Jovic’s situation. To compete for a starting spot as with an indispensable squad member.

In my opinion, a move for Foden certainly will not benefit any of the parties. Instead, a move in 2022 or 2023 could be a better idea rather than rushing into a transfer next summer.
