Manchester City have been linked to Gvardiol for some time, and the move appears to be gathering pace.
A fee will have to be agreed with RB Leipzig. Romano also reports the German club will command a huge fee for Gvardiol.
Gvardiol is one of Europe’s hottest properties. He has starred for RB Leipzig and Croatia. He also has the potential to be one of the best defenders in world football.
That form and potential has placed him firmly on Manchester City’s shopping list.
The potential Gvardiol signing would give Manchester City another young star to develop. If the move is completd he would fit into a side already with Erling Haaland and Phil Foden in it’s ranks.
It would give City three young stars in key positions to keep adding to.
The news keeps coming as the season has now finished. Gvardiol to City is a story fast gathering pace.
