Manchester City will be desperate to claw their way back into the Premier League title race, having dropped off the pace completely in recent times.
The Citizens can’t afford to slip-up again as Liverpool and Spurs have both been dominant in recent times, so they could find themselves slipping even further behind.
Nevertheless, it appears as if Pep Guardiola is eyeing a possible swoop, as according to Ian McGarry of the Transfer Window podcast (via Daily Star), Manchester City have enquired about Thomas Partey.
Manchester City have approached Atletico Madrid about the possibility of signing Thomas Partey.
Indeed, Guardiola is thought to be looking for a long-term successor for Fernandinho, who has failed to ensure consistency in recent times.
The Ghanaian international has established himself as one of the best midfielders in world football this season, so it comes as no surprise that City are looking to bring him to the Etihad.
Thomas Partey, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), could take Manchester City to another level, with the ability to impact the game in the final third by making use of his strength, pace and shooting ability.
The Citizens desperately need to find a replacement for Fernandinho as his performances have been questionable in recent times, so supporters should be excited about Guardiola’s reported interest in Partey.
