Manipulate[] concurrent sliders

Dear all,

the Manipulate[] below calculates x^2.
one can slide x to get y=x^2.

But you can not slide y to get Sqrt[y].

I understand the behaviour, the expression just assigns y with x^2 and
the prior value of y is lost, that is the reason why the code doesn't

How can this be fixed within one single Manipulate[] ?

any suggestions ?
thanks !

 y = x^2;
 x = Sqrt[y];
 {x, y},

 {x, 0, 10},
 {y, 0, 100}
