Real Madrid and Barcelona are already going head-to-head in their pursuit of Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick. However, it seems like the two La Liga giants have another common goal in the transfer market in the form of Borussia Dortmund ace Youssoufa Moukoko.

Indeed, as per SPORT, Barcelona have entered the race to sign the 17-year-old prodigy who is already being pursued by Liverpool, Real Madrid as well as Paris Saint-Germain.

Moukoko has emerged as one of the most promising young players in the German Bundesliga, especially in the ongoing campaign, during which has netted three goals and set up four more for his teammates from 15 appearances.

Just 17 years old, the youngster is also a regular for the German Under-21 national team and has scored six goals in five matches for them.

Moukoko’s current contract with Borussia Dortmund stands to expire in the summer of 2023. It has sparked a plethora of interest in the teenage sensation, with Real Madrid among the clubs keen on signing him.

Los Blancos already raided the Bundesliga for a young forward this past summer, signing Iker Bravo from Bayer Leverkusen. And they wish to do so again by landing Moukoko when his contract with Dortmund runs down.

Given that Karim Benzema has no natural backup in the No. 9 role, Moukoko can be signed and groomed by the reigning champions of Spain and Europe. Despite his young age, he has some degree of experience at the highest level, having played over 50 matches for Dortmund.

However, the competition from the likes of Liverpool, Barcelona, and PSG will make things difficult for Real Madrid.

The report adds that Liverpool could be best-placed to sign Moukoko, thanks to the presence of former Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp. With Barcelona also now entering the picture, Los Merengues will have their task cut out if they wish to land the 17-year-old striker.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
