On the eve of Paraguay’s Copa America quarterfinal against Brazil, Miguel Almiron gave an interview last night which beIN Sports journalist Roberto Rojas shared some of on Twitter.
One interesting excerpt was about the supposed interest of Real Madrid in the Paraguayan midfielder.
Below is what Miguel Almiron said about the link:
Miguel Almiron: “I don’t know anything about the rumors (Real Madrid) and for me, it’s an honor that they are considering me but respectively, I haven’t heard anything official. I’m only focused on the national team at this Copa America right now and with Newcastle.” #NUFC

Almiron’s star has risen over the past few weeks due to his outstanding performances in the Copa America.
There were recent reports that his play had attracted the attention of Real Madrid which has spawned Miguel’s comments above.
It will be interesting to see if this link to Real Madrid intensifies over the summer as Miguel will likely be a bit concerned with Newcastle not retaining Rafa Benitez.
Paraguay will face off against Brazil tonight in the quarterfinals of the Copa America tournament.
