Kyle Walker

BBC journalist David Ornstein has exclusively claimed that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are on the verge of landing Kyle Walker for a fee reported to be around £50 million, plus further add-ons, and should the noted expectations are met, the fee could rise up to £53 million, which would make Walker the most expensive defender in the sport, surpassing David Luiz’s £50m move to Paris Saint-Germain back in 2014.

Manchester City have long been monitoring Kyle Walker’s situation at the club, but the Lilly-Whites were reluctant in negotiating any kind of deal. City shifted their priority to Dani Alves, who terminated his contract with Juventus and became a free agent. But unfortunately for them, he decided to snub Pep Guardiola and joined Paris Saint-Germain ‘to win more trophies’.

Hence, the Citizens were forced to shift their heads back to Kyle Walker, who made 33 Premier League appearances last season. As per the reports from Daily Telegraph, Walker had previously informed manager Mauricio Pochettino that he tends to leave the club for Manchester City. Chairman Daniel Levy, on his part, was well aware of City’s interest for a long time, hence, was holding on to his £50m valuation of the 27-year-old.

Manchester City have already broke one record by signing goalkeeper Ederson Moraes for a world record fee (for a goalkeeper) and it seems now they are on the verge of doing it for the second time running.

We already have Kieran Trippier to fill the void, but with the Champions League football also knocking our doors, a sustainable depth will be Pochettino’s primary concern. And if the reports are to be believed, a £22m move for Porto’s Ricardo Pereira is being tracked down (Evening Standard).

Having said that, this is how the fans are reacting to the news:
