Who is Pep Guardiola’s favorite Real Madrid player?

Marca newspaper revealed the identity of Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola’s favorite player among Real Madrid’s current players.

City met Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at the Santiago Bernabeu, and the match ended in a 3-3 draw, and they will meet in the return leg next Wednesday at Etihad Stadium.

According to the latest report, Guardiola’s favorite player from the Real Madrid Stars Brigade is the Brazilian Rodrigo.

The philosopher admires Rodrigo’s distinctive movements on the field and his way of dealing with pressure, as well as his exceptional skill.

Because of Guardiola’s great admiration for the 23-year-old, Marca put forward the idea that Manchester City would be interested in including the player next summer.

Rodrigo may also be a nightmare for Guardiola, starting with his historic last-minute goal in the 2022 semi-final against City, and ending with his goal in Tuesday’s match, which gave Real Madrid a 2-1 advantage at the time.

Rodrigo’s contract with Real Madrid extends until the summer of 2028, but with the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, his role with the Royal Club may be reduced somewhat.

However, all Spanish media confirm that Real Madrid does not in any way intend to give up the unique Brazilian jewel, nor does his compatriot Vinicius Junior.
