Vieira is in as Palace boss after a lengthy search for Roy Hodgson’s successor, and he has already overseen one new signing with Michael Olise arriving from Reading.
The Frenchman is now allegedly asking City for potential signings, having played for the Cityzens and coached their Under-23 side, before moving to New York City.
According to Football site 90Min, Vieira is in touch with Manchester City about the potential signing of midfielder Claudio Gomes for Crystal Palace.
The 20-year-old youngster is naturally a defensive midfielder, who is able to play anywhere in defence too.
Vieira has a big rebuilding job on his hands at Palace and will need to use his connections. City fans think a loan move to Palace suits Gomes this summer.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have been sharing their thoughts and opinions.
