According to Sergio Santos, Real Madrid are exploring a move for Sergio Santos in the next summer transfer window. The Rayo Vallecano youngster is increasingly becoming a sought-after figure in Spanish football and the move to Santiago Bernabeu could soon be on the horizon.

Real Madrid’s desire to sign Garcia comes in the aftermath of his brilliant performance against the Whites last night. He was even voted as the ‘MVP’ for his performance, as he assisted Santi Comesana for the first goal of the night.

A left-back by trade, Garcia was on the books of Real Madrid’s youth setup from an early age. He was a part of the club’s U17, U18 and U19 setups before being promoted to RM Castilla in the summer of 2018.

He even featured in 59 matches for RM Castilla, before joining Rayo Vallecano in a €2 million deal last summer. The youngster moved to Vallecas in order to make a breakthrough in professional football.

The decision has paid off quite well, too, with Garcia emerging as one of the rising stars in the team right now. In 13 league matches, he has racked up two assists and has played a key role in the left-back position, showcasing immense technical and athletic qualities.

Real Madrid have been left impressed by Garcia’s rapid rise to prominence. They are considering a summer swoop to bring the youngster back to Santiago Bernabeu, as a potential long-term cover for Ferland Mendy.

Following the departure of Marcelo, the Whites have lacked depth in the position. Hence, the arrival of someone like Fran Garcia could prove to be beneficial in the long run.

Luring the 23-year-old away from Rayo Vallecano will not be a difficult task either as the club reportedly owns 50% of the player’s rights. The player himself might fancy a return to Bernabeu, as he looks to make a breakthrough in the senior setup.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
