Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid latest transfer news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the day surrounding the Galacticos!
#3 Guardiola and Pochettino
Real Madrid target Mauricio Pochettino might have dropped a bomb on the Galacticos as he has claimed that he targets a long term stay with the Lilywhites. The Merengues have been targeting a move for the Argentine manager but it seems as though they might find it very difficult to sign him.
Mauricio Pochettino stated that he hopes to stay for the next two decades with the North London outfit as he is very focused at the club and wants to win trophies there.
"I hope, or I wish, to be here 20 years and decide to leave or to finish my career here," Pochettino was quoted as saying.
"I am so focused here, and want to help the club to achieve what the club want to be in history."
"It would be fantastic. I am so happy to be here. I am so happy to work in that pressure. Why not?"
Meanwhile, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has expressed his delight at Real Madrid being interested in a player that graduated from the academy at the Etihad.
The former Barcelona manager also hoped that the youngster gets playing time at the Santiago Bernabeu, which he didn’t get at City.
“We wish him all the best. Of course, going to Real Madrid is not a bad step and hopefully he can get the minutes he didn't get in the last period for many reasons,” he said.
“On the other side, again, congratulations for our academy, they are working so well and in the end, this is what happens, important teams in Europe want to sign our players because it's working really well.”
