The latest news the landlord has received in the Football Transfer Tavern is Manchester City are keen on Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph claims ESPN, and City fans are unsure what to make of this news!
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is looking to bolster his midfield options this summer in time for next season with Frank Lampard and James Milner departing, and Delph has emerged as the latest target for the manager.
There has certainly been a few raised pints to Delph’s performance in the Premier League over the last 12 months, and City look to bring this exciting talent to the Etihad.
The 25-year-old had signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Villa six months ago to not allow him to become a free agent.
However, in the new contract comes a £8m buy-out clause that City are keen to act upon.
City fans over by the pool table here inside the Football Transfer Tavern feel this is could be an astute signing, but do have worries that he may become the next Jack Rodwell!
