Report: Man City ‘send scouts’ to watch highly-rated Real Madrid 22 y/o defender with ‘strength, pace and ball control’

Manchester City Stadium

Manchester City sent a scout to watch Cadiz defender Victor Chust on Sunday as they eye a potential move in the summer, according to a new report.

The 22-year-old is currently on loan at Cadiz CF from Real Madrid’s Castilla team where he’s made 23 appearances in all competitions this season.

Man City aren’t short of centre-backs with John Stones, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake, and boast of the best defensive record in Europe this season, but a report from Spain say the Sky Blues may be after another.

According Spanish outlet La Voz de Cadiz as translated and relayed by Sport Witness, Manchester City sent a scout to watch the Real Madrid loanee in action for Cadiz in their 1-0 win against Villarreal on Sunday.

His performances have earned him plenty of attention, according to the report, who say that the player ‘shows great promise’ now he’s been backed with regular minutes.

As per the report, City are considering a potential move for the defender in the summer, with the plan set to involve securing the 22-year-old’s services before sanctioning a loan move back to Cadiz in order to keep progressing his development.

His ‘strength, pace and ball control’ are all big positives, and his trajectory is ‘picking up again’ as well.

It’s hard to see the 22-year-old coming to England and dethroning Laporte and Dias, so he may be staying in Spain. He is expected to return to Real this summer when his loan spell comes to an end.
