Manchester City wants to kidnap the most important man in Real Madrid sports

It seems that Manchester City coach, the Spanish Pep Guardiola, is very interested in the idea of ​​​​attracting a key player from Real Madrid who has played an effective role in the team’s successes for many years.

City came very close to winning the English Premier League title for the fourth time in a row and the tenth in its history, after its victory last night over Tottenham 2-0.

Coach Guardiola’s men will have to perform well and win their last league match of the season against West Ham at Etihad Stadium, on Sunday, May 19.

Although the 2023-2024 season has not ended yet, the Citizens are already preparing for the summer transfer window, which will perhaps have a surprising name, according to media reports.

The French website “On Mondial” reported that City, led by Guardiola, has already begun to tempt Real Madrid’s Italian physical trainer (Antonio Pintos) with an “indisputable” offer, although no further details have been provided at the present time.

The best physical trainer in the world

Pintos, 61 years old, is considered the best physical trainer in the world currently and one of the most important elements of the Real Madrid team for many years, with whom he won three Champions League titles (2017, 2018, 2022) and created a wonderful reputation for himself that aroused the interest of Manchester City.

According to the French source, Guardiola convinced Ferran Soriano, City’s executive director, to exert every effort in an attempt to sign Pintos, and to make an attractive and irrefutable offer.

Pintos’ training methodology aroused the interest of the largest clubs in the world. Some of the key points in the Italian’s physical preparation include: preventing injuries and overexertion, increasing resistance, and improving the workload.

The Turin native left the Madrid club 5 years ago and signed for Inter Milan to work alongside his compatriot Antonio Conte, winning the Italian League with him in 2021. He also reached the Champions League final with the team in 2023, losing it against Manchester City 0-1.

On June 4, 2021, Pintos returned to Real Madrid, 3 days after the club announced the return of Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian duo Ancelotti and Pintos won eight titles with Real Madrid in the last three seasons: the La Liga title twice (2022 and 2024), the King’s Cup (2023), the Spanish Super Cup twice (2022 and 2024), the European Champions League (2022), the European Super Cup (2023), and the Club World Cup (2023). 2023).
