A recent report from Diario SPORT has offered an update on the future of Pablo Munoz, who is regarded as one of the most talented players to come out of Spanish youth football in recent years.
Munoz currently plies his trade with Rayo Vallecano. An attacking midfielder by trade, the youngster has been scoring goals for fun in the youth leagues of Spanish football, notably bagging 19 goals in the Madrid Honor Division last year.
He has continued to impress onlookers, and it appears his performances have not gone unnoticed either, with Barcelona among the clubs keen on his services.
The Catalans reportedly attempted to sign the youngster last year. But the player opted to renew his contract at Rayo Vallecano. The club are expected to make another attempt to sign the attacking midfielder, but this time around, they are set to face stiff competition from Real Madrid.
According to the aforementioned report, Los Blancos have been monitoring the progress of Pablo Munoz lately. They consider him an ideal sporting prospect, who has the potential to become an asset for the club in the years to come.
Given Barcelona’s excellent record of nurturing young Spanish players, Real Madrid have a daunting task on their hands in their quest to sign Munoz.
However, with the Whites also enjoying a boom in youth development in recent years, they could make a strong case for becoming the next destination for the Rayo Vallecano starlet.
The player is yet to make a single appearance in competitive football so far, but as he continues to perform well in the youth divisions, it could only be a matter of time before he takes the next big step in his career.
Real Madrid want to bring radical changes in Spanish refereeing system – report
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.
