Real Madrid aims to challenge Manchester City’s advantage in the pursuit of Manchester United’s standout player, Kobie Mainoo, as a potential successor to Luka Modric, proposing a contract worth 200 million euros.

Real Madrid curtails Man City’s advantage by eyeing Manchester United’s ‘caviar’ Kobbie Mainoo to replace Modric with a 200 million Euro contract.


Real Madrid is reportedly considering Manchester United’s Kobbie Mainoo as a replacement for Luka Modric after failing to secure a ‘mouth-watering’ player from Manchester City.


Real Madrid eyes Man Utd ‘caviar’ as Modric’s successor over ‘mouth-watering’ Man City star.


Modric, who has spent 12 years with Madrid, earning five Champions League titles and three La Liga crowns, is a club legend.


Phil Foden ‘impossible’

The Croatian star has not been offered a new contract and might leave in the summer, though manager Carlo Ancelotti has proposed a coaching role if he stays at the Bernabeu.


Regardless, Madrid is searching for a replacement, and Spanish newspaper Nacional reports that president Florentino Perez is eyeing Mainoo, as signing top choice Phil Foden is seen as ‘impossible.’

Foden scored a stunning goal at the Bernabeu on Tuesday, impressing Real Madrid, but Perez acknowledges he won’t be able to lure him away from City.


Mainoo means ‘excellent caviar.’

Mainoo, described as ‘excellent caviar,’ has caught Madrid’s attention and is considered on par with Foden, despite only making his United debut this season.


The source elaborates, “Mainoo is a complete soccer player.” With an ideal physique, the Englishman can play wide, arrive in the box from the second line, has excellent shooting ability, and contributes defensively.

Perez is investing in young talent, and Jude Bellingham’s successful start in Madrid will likely increase his desire to sign more young English players.


Mainoo scored a remarkable goal in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool, but United legend Gary Neville thinks the 18-year-old still needs to improve his midfield positioning after failing to do “the basics of the game” alongside Casemiro.


“Look where Mainoo is—he’s ahead of the ball on a throw-in. For a central midfielder, I always think – and Bruno Fernandes had to run back,” Neville told Sky Sports.


“Forget about that [man-marking system], forget about Mac Allister, and don’t get ahead of the game. You can always work up to that one. He’s moving up there now; it defies logic and is fundamental to the game.


“He doesn’t need to be chasing across the pitch right now.” Garnacho and Hojlund can handle that. Look at the area behind him, alongside Casemiro. Mac Allister has entered that space. Just the basics.


“Look where Casemiro and Mainoo have gone; it opens up a passage there. To be honest, it’s really basic. The absolute basics. It’s so simple to play against Manchester United’s midfield.


“It’s the most odd and peculiar, and if you’ve ever watched football or played midfield – or any position on the game – you know these are the kinds of things you learn as a 12-year-old. Bruno has gone there, and he has no chance of getting near that pass.”
