According to MARCA, Real Madrid have been joined by eternal rivals Barcelona in the race to sign Valencia midfield wonderkid Javi Guerra Moreno in the summer of 2023.

The 19-year-old joined Valencia from Villarreal in 2019 and has since made rapid strides through the ranks at the club. Guerra has featured 13 times for Los Che’s reserve side, scoring and assisting one goal apiece while he has one first-team appearance to his name, to date.

A versatile central midfielder, Guerra can play in the holding role or operate as a No. 8. The teenager has exhibited good technical abilities with the ball, has the capability to make line-breaking forward runs and can hold his own when not in possession.

All these attributes have seemingly put him on the radars of Real Madrid, who are always on the lookout for the best young talents in the country and across the globe.

Indeed, Los Blancos have set their sights on several young prospects such as Endrick Felipe of Palmeiras, Borussia Dortmund’s Youssoufa Moukoko, and Botafogo’s Matheus Nascimento, among several others.

Now Javi Guerra is also said to on the radars of the Spanish capital club, although they are likely to face stiff competition from rivals Barcelona. Having lost out to the Catalans in the race for Pablo Torre last summer, Real Madrid would be keen on landing the Valencia ace.

Guerra’s contract with Los Che expires at the end of the season, but they want to extend his stay at the Mestalla beyond 2023 and are reported to have tabled a long-term contract offer.

So, the decision is now up to Guerra and it remains to be seen if he opts to continue at Valencia or chooses a move away to Real Madrid or Barcelona come summer.

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.
