Manchester City are reportedly on the hunt for a number of reinforcements as they seek to take the Premier League title back from Liverpool next season. According to The Times, manager Pep Guardiola wants to add two centre-backs to his ranks, as well as fullbacks for both flanks and a new backup for goalkeeper Ederson Moraes.
City’s centre-back shortlist includes Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez, Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Sevilla’s Diego Carlos and the Benfica captain Ruben Dias. Apparently, they’ve contacted Atletico to enquire about the price for Gimenez and got told they would have to pay €120 million to obtain the services of the 25-year-old Uruguay international, which would make him the world’s most expensive defender ever. All of the centre-backs mentioned would cost a lot of money, which could still make City turn to Nathan Ake of Bournemouth as a cheaper option.
There are reports suggesting that City have agreed personal terms with Valencia winger Ferran Torres to replace Leroy Sane who left to join Bayern Munich, though they are still contemplating the likes of Atletico’s Joao Felix and Adama Traore of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
