Randal Kolo Muani became a household name overnight last December, particularly on the night France faced Argentina in the final of the FIFA World Cup. The French side ended up on the losing end, but it was Kolo Muani who had a staggering chance to net the winner in the final minute.

Yet, if one were to turn back the clock and re-witness the final in Qatar, it would not take long to realise that the 24-year-old’s introduction in the 41st minute brought France back into the game. When coupled with his numbers at the club level, the youngster’s CV is promising.

According to reports from Santi Aouna (via Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid really like Kolo Muani. However, there is nothing advanced at the moment.

While the club have considered his name in the past, the operation promises to be a complicated affair because of his exorbitant price tag.

The 24-year-old has made 31 Bundesliga appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt this season, scoring 14 goals and providing 11 assists in the process. Further, he averages 1.3 key passes per game and has created 11 big chances.

Kolo Muani’s contract with the German side runs until the summer of 2027. Eintracht Frankfurt are aware of the market value of top-quality forwards and thus will not permit him to leave unless a significant offer arrives.

Los Blancos are already on the lookout for their next big striker, especially considering that the next season could be Karim Benzema’s final term at the club.

Dusan Vlahovic, Harry Kane and Goncalo Ramos are said to be prime contenders to arrive at the Bernabeu in June, but the club will first have to decide their stance on Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

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.
