Amid rumours suggesting the potential arrival of Erling Haaland, Manchester City are expected to offload a few of their star attackers in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The list is topped by Gabriel Jesus, who has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular even in the current setup and could fall further behind in the pecking order next season. It has compelled him to look for an exit from Etihad at the end of the season.

Real Madrid are regarded as one of the clubs in contention to sign Gabriel this summer, with the Spanish giants currently in the market for attacking reinforcements.

The situation has gotten even more interesting as Real Madrid are set to lock horns with Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

Speaking ahead of the game, Gabriel Jesus has lauded his international teammate Vinicius Junior, stating: “I’m a fan of Vinicius Junior.”

The Manchester City attacker continued by praising the atmosphere at Santiago Bernabeu and why he and his teammates will need to be at their hundred percent in order to prevail in this encounter.

“You have to impose the rhythm because at the Bernabeu they have magic”, he added (h/t Marca)

Given the links with Real Madrid, it is easy to link Gabriel Jesus’ comments to his potential desire to play for the Whites next season. But when asked about his future, the attacker denied commenting, suggesting it is not the right time.

“It’s not time to think about this. You expect me to say this, but it’s true. Now is the best moment of the season. I want to enjoy, to keep focused on my team, with my teammates, to fight for the Premier League.”

“I won it with my teammates three times and I know how that feels and I want to have that feeling again. And then, of course, we also have the tough game on Tuesday against Real Madrid (in the Champions League) and that is my focus.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
