The cartel is competing with Madrigal, if anything. Gus is the one with ties to Madrigal, not the Cartel. The Cartel and Gus are in competition. That's why the cartel wants the recipe for the blue meth. With the same product, the cartel can crowd Gus out of his own territory.
There's something powerful behind Madrigal, it seems. The only reason that Gus hasn't been murdered himself is because of "who he is," which has to do with his mysterious ties back in Chile and possibly with Madrigal.
