The Manchester City fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that suggest the club are close to agreeing a deal for a new addition for next season.
The Times is reporting that the Premier League side are close to agreeing a deal to land midfielder Ilkay Gudongan from Borussia Dortmund this season.
It suggests the City have offered to pay an initial fee of €18 million with a further €5 million to be paid dependent on performances.
Incoming Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is a massive admirer of Gundogan and will be delighted that the club have made a move to land the impressive midfielder.
Dortmund are yet to respond to City’s offer and it is expected that they will want more than is on offer at present but it is unlikely to put City off coming back with a second offer.
The Manchester City fans in The Tavern are delighted that the club have made a move for Gundogan and hope to see him plying his trade at the Etihad next season!
Our landlord has to agree with the City fans, and thinks it would be a sensational coup for the Citizens if they managed to secure a deal for Gundogan!
Manchester City fans…… What do you make of this news? Surely you must be happy? Let us know below!
