Man City fans are in a state of shock in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening in the light of news that a mainstay of their recent success could be set to leave.
Whilst the Sky Blues fans here in the bar were expecting an overhaul by the new manager, Pep Guardiola, however they may not have expected to lose their captain as a part of the Spaniards changes.
According to reports from Turkish newspaper, Fanatik, Besiktas are preparing a £25m bid for Man City defender, Vincent Kompany.
The Belgian international, who has been hampered by injuries over the last season and missed out on the European Championships this summer, has played a key role in the successes at the Etihad in recent years.
Discussions over the deal have reportedly began at boardroom level, however the Manchester Evening News are claiming that the Turkish giants may struggle to match or improve upon the wages of the 30-year-old.
During his time in Manchester, the former Anderlecht man has won; two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups and a Community Shield.
City fans, what do you make of this move? Should Guardiola sell if the fee really is £25m? Or should he keep the Belgian on for the coming season? Let us know below…
