According to SPORT, Real Madrid have identified Villarreal defender and Barcelona transfer target Juan Foyth as a potential transfer target for the summer window.

Real Madrid look set to enter the market for a new right-back in the summer as concerns grow over Dani Carvajal’s form, fitness, and longevity. Carlo Ancelotti has Lucas Vazquez and Nacho Fernandez as backups, but neither are natural full-backs.

There has been no decision made on the permanent signing of Vinicius Tobias, who has been doing well for the Real Madrid Castilla team.

So, despite some reports suggesting otherwise, it seems like Real Madrid will scan the market for a new right-sided full-back.

Chelsea ace Reece James had been touted as a target, but the Englishman is unlikely to leave in the summer.

Now, it seems the Merengues have set their sights on Foyth and have already sounded out his entourage about the possibility of a summer move.

It must be noted that Barcelona have been pursuing the signing of the 25-year-old Argentine international since last summer. However, Financial Fair Play issues have become a major impedance in their path to land the right-back.

The situation is likely to remain the same for Barça this summer as well, as they are currently not in a position to meet Villarreal’s €54 million demands for Foyth, which is the value of his release clause.

Amidst this, Real Madrid have entered the fray to sign the 25-year-old, who won the FIFA World Cup 2022 with Argentina.

While Los Blancos have sounded out Foyth’s entourage, they are yet to take a firm decision on whether they wish to sign him or not. The report states that Real Madrid have the financial muscle to pull off the deal, but could back out if they feel the asking price is too steep.

The reigning Spanish and European champions are also understood to hold an interest in Joao Cancelo despite having turned down the chance to sign him in January. It remains to be seen whether they go after Foyth or Cancelo or decide to stay with their current right-back options.

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.
