Also reported by Fabrizio Romano is that Pep Guardiola rates the Croatian defender highly.
There is still a fee to be agreed between Manchester City and RB Leipzig.
Rob Dawson of ESPN has reported that RB Leipzig could ask for a fee as high £100 million for Gvardiol. The Croatian defender is under contract with the German club until 2027, and Leipzig’s valuation speaks to how highly they rate Gvardiol.
The Gvardiol move gathering pace is a positive sign for Manchester City.
Gvardiol would bring immense talent and potential to the Etihad.
He is physically strong, and good on the ball, a must for any defender in a Pep Guardiola team.
Josko Gvardiol was a stand out at the FIFA World Cup. Croatia finished third at the tournament, and Gvardiol’s performances stood out.
It could be two Croatians in at Manchester City with the looming arrival of Mateo Kovacic.
