Manchester City ready to make significant investment as they eye two elite centre-backs

Posted by

Manchester City are being strongly linked with moves for two big-name centre-backs based in La Liga.

According to Sport, Pep Guardiola’s side could be ready to make a significant investment in either one of Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez, or Diego Carlos of Sevilla.

It remains to be seen who City will prioritise, but the report suggests those two are now the Premier League giants’ main targets over Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly.

Gimenez and Carlos have both looked rock solid and should adapt well to the Premier League if they do end up moving to the Etihad Stadium.

City could do with a signing of this type as a long-term replacement for Vincent Kompany, who was badly missed last season after his departure at the end of 2018/19.

Atletico won’t want to sell Gimenez after his contribution to the club for a number of years now, but both they and Sevilla have a habit of losing their best players to bigger clubs.

  1. Excellent news, Koulibally is the wrong age and looks too ponderous for my liking. Get one of the others in, and young Haaland and we’ll be fine.

  2. I hope that they don’t go for Gimenez, he doesn’t look like the type of player that City need. He appears to lack pace and reminds me of a 60’s type centre-half.

  3. Pep should sign jose gimenez not napoli star koulibaly. He can not help city coz he is now getting older
