The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern want their club to become a real hub of young European talent…
With some of the facilities available at the Etihad offering the perfect circumstances for youth development, the Citizens are likely to build quite a strong young squad over the coming years – and according to Le10Sport, the club are already working towards that end by bringing in one young player in particular.
Le10Sport are running with a story that suggests that Man City have held talks with breakout Borussia Dortmund ace Ousmane Dembele, with the player discussing a move during a vacation trip to Manchester. It doesn’t appear as though there is an agreement between the clubs, but it appears as though at the very least the player is interested in a switch to the Guardiola-led outfit – which has left the Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern feeling very excited indeed.
Dembele enjoyed a fantastic season last year, making 32 appearances in the Bundesliga – 22 of which came from the start. He bagged 6 goals and 12 assists too, with the Frenchman really impressing for the German giants.
Able to play in a variety of positions across the midfield, he would certainly be a good option for Guardiola, and his form last year might suggest that whilst he is young, he is more than ready to feature in the Man City first team.
The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t sure how far along this deal is, but they are certainly looking forward to finding out more.
