Real Madrid might have readied David Alaba as a potential Sergio Ramos replacement. But Los Blancos are also contemplating a swap deal with Sevilla to shore up their backline.According to The Real Champs, the La Liga giants are interested in swapping Isco with Sevilla’s defensive rock Jules Kounde. With Real Madrid apparently making the centre-back position a top priority in the summer, there are few better options than the French defender at the moment.Kounde rose through the ranks at Bordeaux before joining Sevilla in the summer of 2019. He has been on Real Madrid’s radar ever since and is already one of the top five defenders in the La Liga at the moment. The Frenchman was indispensable for the Red and Whites last season, making 40 appearances and playing a key role in their Europa League triumph. This season, Kounde already has 23 games under his belt and has also scored two goals.The centre-back position is increasingly becoming an area of concern for Real Madrid, with Raphael Varane’s future also in doubt at the moment. Los Blancos believe that allowing Isco to join Sevilla might convince the Andalusian club to let go of Kounde.The 22-year-old gave a glimpse of his talent against Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey, netting a goal and then churning up a world-class tackle to stop Frenkie de Jong from scoring. Kounde certainly showed the world why Real Madrid are eager to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu.Real Madrid’s swap offer might not convince Sevilla Jules Kounde There is no doubting Isco’s attacking talents. But it is also true that the Spaniard has not set the stands on fire for more than a year now. Isco has failed to break into the Real Madrid team of late, and it is not known whether he is highly rated by Sevilla. Jugen Lopetegui might be willing to consider a reunion with the player. But the Red and Whites already have a plethora of attacking talents in their arsenal. In such a case, Isco might struggle to find game-time ahead of Suso, Papu Gomez and Joan Jordan.Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and Manchester City are all interested in Sevilla centre-back Jules Koundé. Sevilla expect his €80m release clause to be triggered this summer. The decision that the player will make is still unknown. #MUFC [@diarioas]— mufcmpb (@mufcMPB) February 11, 2021Sevilla’s midfield is better stocked than their backline, which means they would have to replace Kounde if he leaves. But finding an able replacement who won’t leave a dent in their pockets looks next to impossible. So Madrid’s offer of a straight swap with Isco might not be lucrative enough for Sevilla to consider.

Guti says Real Madrid did not give him enough opportunities to advance his career
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Real Madrid legend José María Gutiérrez Hernández, popularly known as Guti, has hit out at the club over what he described as unfair treatment.Speaking in an interview with fellow club legend Jorge Valdano, Guti said:“I think the have the doors to Real Madrid closed. Not for my part, but for theirs. As a coach, they did not give me the opportunity to show in Castilla that one day I could make the lead to Real Madrid. For that reason, it was the right time for me to leave. I had already been at Juvenil A for two years,”“The first year at Real was very good and the second not so much, I needed a greater challenge,”“I did not leave because they didn’t give me Castilla, I left because Real Madrid and Castilla had their benches occupied. I wanted to continue to advance in my career. If I had continued one more year at Juvenil A, I would have taken a step backwards.”Guti came through the Real Madrid academy, spending nine years within the system, before making his first-team debut in 1995.Over the next 15 years, he played his way into becoming a club legend, with 542 appearances made in all competitions. He, however, failed to truly fulfill his potential, owing to disciplinary issues, as well as the presence of several world-class players in the dressing room.He departed the Santiago Bernabeu in 2010 and spent two years with Turkish side Besiktas before announcing his retirement in 2012.He returned to Real Madrid to coach the youth team for five years, but left in 2018, having not been given opportunities to progress up the managerial hierarchy. A six-month managerial spell was undertaken at Segunda side Almeria before he was sacked in June 2020. Zidane's job as Real Madrid manager could be under threat owing to inconsistent results Zidane is under pressureZinedine Zidane is unarguably the most successful manager in Real Madrid's recent history. His record on the bench is likely to be matched in the nearest future but recent results have done little to make his position safe.A poor start to the season had seen his position under threat, with reports suggesting that Florentino Perez is considering alternatives. His players, however, rallied behind him, with a strong run in December seeing Real Madrid top their UEFA Champions League group. Los Blancos also got back into the La Liga title race.Despite that, they have failed to build on that momentum and are currently seven points behind Atletico Madrid, having played two games more. Real Madrid also suffered the embarrassment of being eliminated from the Copa del Rey by a 10-man third division side Alcoyano.Considering the volatile nature of the Real Madrid managerial position, it is not far-fetched to suggest that Zidane could find himself out of work if results don't improve fast.
