Could Manchester City be poised to play their trump card in a bid to sign Wolves Portuguese winger Pedro Neto? The right wing appears to be a position of need for the European champions and they may have found their ideal player for the position.
Stevie Kay reports for footballtransfers.com that the champions are interested in signing Pedro Neto. Kay adds that the treble winners could face competition from Arsenal for the winger. Furthermore, Kay adds that Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias have been in contact with Neto to convince him to move to the Etihad. In addition to the pair talking to Neto Kay further reports that the champions may offer Neto regular first-team opportunities in a bid to beat Arsenal to his signature.
A right winger appears to be a position of need for Manchester City. With Phil Foden moving centrally an opening in the City squad at the right wing position does appear available. Bernardo Silva tends to occupy the position in Pep Guardiola’s preferred eleven. Jeremy Doku can play on the right but he has primarily featured on the left-hand side this season. Outside of those two and Phil Foden, the squad does look to need a right winger.
Pedro Neto would fit the bill as a potential Manchester City signing. Given his age and the potential to develop he could develop into an elite winger under Guardiola. The ability of Neto to create chances would seem well-suited to the world champions. With his elite dribbling ability Neto could become a valuable asset to Manchester City if a move materialised. The thought of him and Jeremy Doku running at defenders on either flank for the champions is a mouth-watering proposition.
If Manchester City can play their trump card correctly it could land them another potential game-changer.
