Barcelona joins Real Madrid in the race to sign free transfer midfielder in January.
In the competition to recruit Valencia midfield wonderkid Javi Guerra Moreno in the summer of 2023, MARCA reports that Real Madrid and archrival Barcelona have joined forces.
The 19-year-old transferred from Villarreal to Valencia in 2019 and has since advanced quickly through the team’s levels. Guerra has made one first-team appearance to far, although he has played in 13 occasions for Los Che’s reserve team, where he has scored and assisted on one goal each.
Guerra, a skilled central midfielder, can play as a holding midfielder or as a No. 8. The young player has shown good technical skills with the ball, the ability to make line-breaking offensive runs, and the ability to hold his own without the ball.
All of these qualities have reportedly caught Real Madrid’s attention, who are constantly searching for the brightest young talents in the nation and around the world.
Indeed, Los Blancos have their eyes on a number of youthful possibilities, including Matheus Nascimento of Botafogo, Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund, and Endrick Felipe of Palmeiras.
The Spanish capital club is reportedly now interested in signing Javi Guerra, however they will undoubtedly face fierce competition from rivals Barcelona. Real Madrid would be interested in signing the Valencia star after falling short to the Catalans in the hunt for Pablo Torre last summer.
Guerra’s contract with Los Che ends at the end of the current campaign, but the club reportedly has a long-term contract offer on the table and wants to keep him at the Mestalla past 2023.
Guerra must now make a decision; it will be interesting to watch if he decides to stay at Valencia or decides to leave for Real Madrid or Barcelona in the summer.
