Man City ‘mulling over’ move for Barcelona star and other transfer rumours

Man City 'mulling over' move for Barcelona star and other transfer rumours

Frenkie De Jong, a standout for Barcelona, has been linked to a surprise transfer to Manchester City.

Declan Rice of West Ham United and Jude Bellingham were also passed over by the treble winners. However, despite bringing in Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea, City are trying to strengthen their midfield given that Ilkay Gundogan has left the team and Bernardo Silva’s future is uncertain.

Additionally, according to The Sun, Pep Guardiola is “mulling over” making a move for Dutch international De Jong, who the Spanish giants value at £90 million. Before Barcelona won the race to get him, De Jong was said to be moving to the Etihad in 2019. With three years left on his contract, the footballer, who has also been closely linked to Manchester United, is estimated to make £400,000 per week.

De Jong is reportedly content at the Nou Camp, where he has Xavi’s support. However, due to Barcelona’s poor financial situation, the 26-year-old may be sold in order to raise much-needed revenue.

In other developments, Bristol City is allegedly interested in signing City midfielder Lewis Fiorini. Following his time with Blackpool last season, the Championship team is reportedly vying for the 21-year-old’s services. For the Seasiders, Fiorini made 13 appearances and contributed to three goals.

The Scotland youth international has a deal with City through 2026, but Swansea City and Reading are also reportedly interested in signing him. According to the article, the Premier League winners are debating whether to authorize a second loan out for Fiorini or a long-term departure.
