City who have been scouting the Uruguay international had an offer for the 23 year-old reportedly turned down by Juve last summer but plan to try again this summer.
According to Tuttojuve, the Cityzens made enquiries about Rodrigo Bentancur, offering €50m but Juventus rejected the offer, deeming the player non-transferrable.
This season, Bentancur has produced seven assists in 18 matches in Serie A and has a contract with Juve to 2024.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions
Even tho I doubt this is real. What a signing he would be. Perfect box to box midfielder

City have already been very active in their recruitment plans with just seven weeks until the 2020-21 campaign kick off.
The club completed a £37m deal for Valencia winger Ferran Torres on Tuesday and Dutch international Nathan Ake for £41million from Bournemouth on Wednesday, but Guardiola isn’t done there.
