There is drama here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by talkSPORT that Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester City could well be set to miss out on Sevilla’s Geoffery Kondogbia after the player declared his love for Real Madrid.
It was only this week in the tavern that we were talking about both Arsenal and Manchester City’s interest in the midfielder and now it seems that both are set to miss out on the £7 million rated player who they have been watching closely.
Roberto Mancini and Arsene Wenger are set for a massive blow after reading the player’s comments where he makes it perfectly clear that a move to fellow La Liga club Real Madrid is exactly what he favours.
The player admitted to Telefoot that: “It is always a pleasure to know people are interested in you.
“Madrid? That makes me dream but it is only a rumour for now. I want to play in the Champions League. My preference? Since childhood (it has been) Real Madrid.”
Of course a move has to work both ways and there could still be hope for the Premier League clubs given that Real Madrid will certainly be swapping managers in the summer, yet despite this point they have already been watching the player who is known to be a favourite of Florentino Perez.
Will Kondogbia earn his move to Real Madrid? Let us know your thoughts below.
