Manchester City fans are rather keen to hear the latest claim coming from the Daily Star in the Football Transfer Tavern – and our landlord is happy to oblige the Citizens supporters.
According to the publication, La Liga winners Atletico Madrid are keen on luring Alvaro Negredo to the Vicente Calderon and are already looking to make a bid for the ex-Sevilla forward.
As one of our punters points out over a pint, Diego Simeone and his men are looking to replace Diego Costa, who is en route to Chelsea.
Los Colchoneros are keen on Negredo not only because of the form he showed in the early stages at the Etihad Stadium last season, but also because of his previous games to goal ratio during his time in Spain.
We think that should the right offer come in, Manchester City may well be tempted to sell especially given they want to keep and play Steven Jovetic next season and already have both Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko at their disposal.
Negredo would not come cheap, but given Atleti seem to be selling half their squad, we think they could raise the money from somewhere!
City fans. Would you consider selling your ‘beast’ Negredo or is he too vital to let go at any price? Let us know your thoughts below.
