Real Madrid 'face Manchester City competition for Junior Firpo'

Versatile Real Betis left-back Junior Firpo is wanted by Pep Guardiola to provide competition and cover for Benjamin Mendy, according to a report.

Manchester City could reportedly join the race to sign Real Madrid target Junior Firpo from Real Betis.

The 22-year-old has made 32 appearances for Betis since breaking into the first team in February, scoring five times in total.

Firpo's displays down the left-hand side for the La Liga side have led to interest from Madrid, who supposedly consider the Dominican Republic-born ace as a long-term replacement for Marcelo.

Despite the Spain Under-21s international admitting last week that he has a close affection for Los Blancos, however, The Mirror suggests that Man City may try their luck with a bid of their own.

The Citizens are in need of defensive cover for Benjamin Mendy, and Pep Guardiola is said to be a big fan of Firpo.

Betis are believed to be holding out for a £40m offer.
