Speaking in an interview with GQ Spain (h/t COPE), Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has claimed that Manchester City are the best football team in the world.

The 23-year-old forward’s statements come amidst some speculations over his future after he had left the doors open for an exit in a different interview earlier this week.

Only earlier today, we reported that Rodrygo was a player that Manchester City like, with their manager Pep Guardiola understood to be an admirer of the way the Real Madrid forward plays.

Now it appears that the admiration is mutual as the Brazilian international, who scored against Man City in the UCL, has claimed that they are the best team in the world.

“For me, it is the best team in the world, the one that plays the best football,” said Rodrygo.

In fact, the Real Madrid ace even went on to state that the team knew that Man City were much better than them during their match-up in the Champions League this season.

“To be honest, we knew they were better,” he remarked.

The Brazilian’s statements are likely to ruffle some feathers at Real Madrid, especially given that they come only a couple of days before they play the biggest game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UCL final.

As for his future, there have been rumblings about his continuity for a while now, with Kylian Mbappe’s arrival expected to impact his game-time.

However, it was suggested that Rodrygo confirmed earlier today that he does not plan to leave Real Madrid this year.

Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni is currently with the French National Team in preparation for the upcoming European Championships.

Didier Deschamps and Co. were hoping that the defensive midfielder would make a complete recovery from the stress injury on his left foot in time for the Euros, but his situation does not appear as favourable any longer.

With the commencement of the competition approaching fast, the French setup are worried and must make a decision fast, as revealed by SPORT.

Long time out

Les Bleus are still living in the optimism that Tchouameni will make it back in time for the premier event. With every passing day, however, the Real Madrid star’s availability is looking more distant.

After all, the deep-lying midfielder last played over a month ago in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich. Since then, he missed four league games, the UCL final and two friendly games with the national team.

Should the Frenchman recover in time, there will be questions raised about his match-fitness and rightly so for 40 days is a very long hiatus in the world of football.

Urgent decision

The medical team of the French national setup have reportedly devised a specific plan to ensure that the youngster recovers at the earliest and is available for the event in Germany.

Deschamps, however, has a critical decision to make as he will not be allowed to make any changes to his squad after the tournament begins. His deadline, thus, is the 17th of June before his team’s clash against Austria.

The manager hopes to recover Tchouameni at all costs and will likely wait until the nth minute before taking a decision.

Should a replacement be required, a UEFA Medical Committee doctor will have to confirm that the injury is indeed as serious as the camp believe.
