Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports that claims the club have been told to stay clear of any attempt to sign AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer.
The 22-year-old’s performances in Egypt earned him a move to Milan, where he became one of the standout performers in the 2019/20 Serie A season, and City were linked with the Algerian youngster in the press several times during the last transfer window.
According to MilanNews relayed by SempreMilan, AC Milan will only do business for Ismaël Bennacer if his €50M release clause is met, which is valid only for teams abroad and has to be paid in one sum, rather than in instalments.
Pep Guardiola was reported to be personally convinced of the midfielder’s qualities and was keen on bringing the Algerian international to the Etihad.
Bennacer joined AC Milan at the beginning of the 2019/20 season for €16m after a two-year spell with Empoli. When he signed his contract, the €50m release clause was inserted which becomes active in summer 2021.

*Gundo, Rodri, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Foden. We a have better midfield and better depth than liverpool. We could use a CDM backup for sure but stop exaggerating
