crazy ball – Manchester City are ready to withdraw from transfer talks for Marc Cucurella as Brighton overvalue their defender at IDR 907 billion and the Premier League champions are now making Stuttgart defender Borna Sosa and Benfica defender Alex Grimaldo alternative targets.
Pep Guardiola is looking to bring about a change in his side’s left-handed defence, which led him to sacrifice Oleksandr Zinchenko to be sold to Premier League rivals Arsenal in a transfer deal worth IDR 544 billion.
The sale of the Ukraine international has increased Manchester City’s pursuit of Marc Cucurella, who reportedly submitted a transfer request to Brighton, allowing him to move to the Etihad Stadium in this summer’s transfer window.
Unfortunately that The seagulls refused to compromise on the price they asked for Rp 907 billion for a player who played even once for the Spanish national team and had no prestige at all.
Now, as reported via daily mail, Manchester City were poised to shift their transfer targets when their initial offer of IDR 544 billion, which could rise to IDR 723 billion including bonuses, was rejected by Brighton.
Their first target as an alternative to Marc Cucurella was Stuttgart defender Borna Sosa, whose name has risen on the German football scene recently and is now also starting to get regular calls to the Croatian national team.
Another transfer target is Alex Grimaldo, whose transfer may be more realistic as his contract at Benfica expires in June 2023. He studied at the Barcelona academy but has spent his career in Portugal from 2016 until now.
