City change their transfer plans

Manchester City still believe Rodri will sign, but he has not yet fully committed to the transfer. The Premier League club are ready to pay his €70m buy-out clause, but Atletico are fighting to keep him in Madrid. [via ]

Leicester City are holding out for a huge fee for Harry Maguire – reports suggest it could be as high as £90m and that has made City consider their options. [via ]

Man City’s stance on signing Ben Chilwell has shifted once again in the past few days. A deal for Chilwell was initially on and then suddenly off, and it is now somewhere in between. Chilwell moving to City remains unlikely and depends on many factors. [via ]

City believe Nicolas Otamendi may be tempted to stay at the club now that Kompany has left. City could offer Otamendi more first-team football next season if they do not sign a new centre-back, and that could allow them to shift priorities in the market. [via ]

City officials did hold a meeting with Jorge Mendes and the president of Benfica on Thursday. City then held another meeting with Mendes a day later – with the superagent specifically in the UK to clarify the future of Joao Felix. [via ]

City would only move for Joao Felix if a current player were to leave the club, but in any case they are unwilling to pay the €120m release clause. [via ]
