City transfer plans revealed

City have decided not to rival Barcelona for Matthijs De ligt and other clubs. Part of the reasoning is that they do not want to deal with his agent, Mino Raiola. Instead, the leading candidate replace Kompany is Leicester City’s Harry Maguire. [via ]

Guardiola is said to be a fan of Maguire’s aerial and leadership ability, as well as his confidence in possession. City could have to pay around £60 million. [via ]

City are big admirers of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and could make an official move for him once Danilo’s situation is clearer, the latter being couted by Inter Milan. He is expected to cost more than £50m. But any move for a right-back depends on Danilo’s future.

Fabian Delph is also expected to leave, along with Eliaquim Mangala. [via ]

City had been looking at Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes as an alternative, but talk of advanced negotiations turned out to be exaggerated, and as it stands there will be no further movement on that. [via ]

The current expectation on Ilkay Gundogan is that he will stay, but contract talks are set to resume soon, if they have not done so already, and it is now more likely than not that he will agree to a new contract. [via ]

City and Guardiola want to keep the Leroy Sane but they have been trying to renew his contract for over a year. Sane’s contract talks had stalled because of interfering by his mother, who is believed to be leaking information to the German press. [via ]

If Sane does go then City would further explore a move for Joao Felix. City had been in talks with Benfica about the 19-year-old, although they are reluctant to pay his buy-out clause of €120m. City have spoken at length with agent Jorge Mendes about a move. [via ]

Eric Garcia is set to be promoted to the first-team next season, although would not be expected to play much in the Premier League just yet. David Silva has offers in Japan, but is expected to stay here and run his contract down and move next summer. [via ]

Rodri is the club’s priority target, and they are ready to pay his buy-out clause. Barcelona and Bayern Munich have been credited with a rival interest but City are confident he will choose them, having given his approval to their terms some time ago. [via ]
