The Gvardiol transfer saga continues as “tensions” rise between both Manchester City and RB Leipzig.
Gvardiol deal. Tension with Man City and Leipzig during final stage of negotiations — Joško he didn’t complete the medical yet ⚠️🇭🇷
Verbal agreement reached yesterday — medical booked today but then issues on clubs side after leak and no green light to medical.
Deal still ON. pic.twitter.com/Vq2MNy1xAp

Following leaked reports yesterday, RB Leipzig are reportedly unhappy with the Blues.
Perhaps they ought to bring in Peter Walton to referee the negotiations.
Transfer Expert Fabrizio Romano claimed that a deal between the clubs had been agreed.
However, not long after, James Ducker of the Telegraph disputed Romano’s claims. Arguing that a deal had not been reached and a medical was not imminent.
No agreement on fee yet between Leipzig and City over Gvardiol. Naturally because of that no medical either #mcfc

Negotiations have been ongoing since earlier this summer. Now, following the leaks it seems that the relationship between the clubs has broken down.
The parties are playing some normal “negotiation-games”, but I am told that Gvardiol will finally end up at City https://t.co/rlFybgCqYT

Manchester City fans have begun to speculate about where the leaks came from, and what this means for a potential deal this summer.
This is a messy piece of business, and Blues are desperate to see the Croatian in a City shirt. Though for now the saga continues.
