The Man City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would love to see him at the Etihad…
Whilst Manchester City have had an excellent start to the Premier League season so far, Pep Guardiola’s work as manager is only just beginning.
Despite spending millions on players including Nolito and John Stones over the summer, Man City’s squad is still not where it needs to be; and that is something that Guardiola will no doubt look to change in January.
The Man City fans in the Tavern have voiced concern for one area in particular in recent weeks – and it has proven to be a real area of weakness for the Sky Blues.
Despite typically being a strong point of Man City XI’s, the full-back position has been a troublesome area, with opposition teams often looking to exploit the gaps often left behind by players like Gael Clichy, among others.
This is an issue that, seemingly, Guardiola is well aware of; and it would appear that the Spaniard is looking to resolve it as soon as possible.
According to the Sun, Guardiola has reportedly identified Bayern Munich fullback David Alaba as a target, and they have exclusively revealed that talks have been held between the two parties within the last 2 weeks.
They add that any move is likely to top the £40m mark, with his signing expected to be delayed until the summer at the earliest.
This could be absolutely huge for Guardiola and City. Our landlord has often touted Alaba as the best fullback in Europe – and he would definitely fit Pep’s style of play.
The Man City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are equally impressed, given the pedigree that comes along with Alaba. Their depth simply is not good enough – and they think that he would be a welcome addition.
