‘He’s basically Otamendi’ – Fans react as City Chief in spain negotiating a deal for La Liga defender

Must read

Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports that Txiki Begiristain is taking advantage of his time in Barcelona to negotiate a deal for one of Sevilla’s defenders.

City’s need for a centre-half is a priority this summer, after the problems encountered in the wake of Vincent Kompany’s retirement this summer. Despite the £41m capture of Ake from Bournemouth already, defender still remain the priority with Kalidou Koulibaly the main target.

According to El Larguero as relayed by Sport Witness, City Chief Begiristain who travelled to Barça to negotiate a deal for Lionel Messi has made good use of his spare time negotiating with Sevilla for their defender Diego Carlos, while waiting for the 33-year-old to work out his issues with Barcelona before pushing to pull off a transfer .

The report adds that there has been no progress on that front though but he would presumably be an alternative to the Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly.

Diego Carlos is one of the defender strongly linked with a move to the Etihad amongst José Giménez, Upamecano, Milan Skriniar, Nathan Ake and Kalidou Koulibaly this summer, as Pep Guardiola looks to sign a quality centre back pairing for Aymeric Laporte.
.
Carlos, who was from French club Nantes for a reported £13.5 million last summer, has established himself as one of La Liga’s best-performing centre-backs.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Chief, City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
