According to Spanish news outlet Fichajes, via Sport Witness, Man City are eyeing a move for Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig – with the talent allegedly dissatisfied with life under Ronald Koeman.
Puig, who is touted as one of La Masia’s most promising starlets in recent seasons, is currently at the centre of links with a move away from the Nou Camp as his future is thrown into question.
Fichajes claim that a departure is ‘more likely’ than him signing a new deal, gifting the Sky Blues a boost as they circle the Barcelona talent for January negotiations.
In the winter window, he will be free to talk to other clubs over potentially moving away in the summer for free due to his contract expiry – with many City supporters buzzing over this potentially ‘huge‘ move.
