Manchester City managed to put in a dominant performance against Everton yesterday as they secured all three points at the Etihad.
The Citizens’ main aim in the current campaign will be to pip Liverpool to the Premier League title, which could be made easy if they manage to keep up their momentum.
It’s thought that Manchester City have set their sights on signing the Brazilian international as his qualities have impressed Guardiola.
However, they aren’t the only team interested in securing his services, as the likes of Bayern Munich and AS Monaco are also thought to be chasing his signature.
City failed to bring Jorginho to the Etihad back in the summer transfer window and Fernandinho is getting on with age, so moving for Allan could prove vital.
Allan, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), could definitely do a job in the middle of the park for Manchester City, as he impressed against Liverpool recently in the Champions League.
However, with the defending Premier League champions already possessing arguably the strongest squad in the top-flight at this moment in time, perhaps they’ll wait until the summer.
