Manchester City to battle Real Madrid for La Liga defender?


Manchester City will go head-to-head with Real Madrid for the signature of Real Betis defender Junior Firpo, according to a report.

Manchester City will reportedly go head-to-head with Real Madrid for the signature of Real Betis defender Junior Firpo in this summer’s transfer window.

Junior only made his first-team debut for Betis in February 2018, having come through the youth system.

The 22-year-old has been plagued by injuries since the latter stages of 2018, but has still made 22 appearances for his Spanish club during the 2018-19 campaign.

According to reports in Spain, City are prepared to battle Madrid for the left-sided player, who can operate in both defence and midfield.

Firpo is believed to have a £43m release clause in his current deal, which is due to expire in June 2023.

While City have struggled in the left-back position this season, Madrid have also had their own problems with neither Marcelo nor Sergio Reguilon convincing for long periods.
