Exclusive: €100m star wants Man City transfer, one to watch in coming week according to expert.
The Croatian international is considered as one of the best young footballers in the world, and Leipzig appears keen to sell him for a large sum of money as they demand about €100 million overall.
Romano adds that Gvardiol is pressing for a transfer to Man City, so even though it won’t be simple to negotiate a deal with his team, it appears positive for Pep Guardiola and company.
Even though that fee currently appears to be quite high, City is undoubtedly financially capable of giving Leipzig what they desire in exchange for Gvardiol, who is likely to prove to be a wise investment.
City surely have the financial resources to give Leipzig what they want for Gvardiol, who would likely end up being a smart investment, even if that fee looks pretty big now.
Still only 21 years of age, Gvardiol has a big future in the game and can surely go very far indeed under the guidance of a manager like Guardiola.
“I can say that Manchester City are still working hard on Josko Gvardiol deal behind the scenes,” Romano said.
“The situation has been pretty quiet in the media but City and RB Leipzig remain in direct contact.
“The player is pushing to go to City, but Leipzig are insisting on their €100m asking price. Still, talks are absolutely on – the deal is being negotiated and could be one to watch next week again.”
