Manchester City have agreed personal terms with Marc Cucurella. According to sources, Manchester City are in advanced talks to finalise a fee with Brighton for the left-back.

Marc Cucurella, the left-back has accepted City’s contract offer. He has also made it clear to the Seagulls, that he wants to quit the club for the Champions. The report also adds that a full agreement is not in place as the two clubs have not yet agreed a price.

But the Premier League champions are very confident that the clubs will agree a price as the negotiations have reached an advanced stage. City have priortised the capture of the Catalan, who was named Brighton’s player of the year in his first season. The left-back just played his first season in the Premier League after his move from Getafe to Brighton last summer.

MANCHESTER CITY- MARC CUCURELLA TRANSFER SAGA FULL STORY

Pep Guardiola have identified Cucurella as the ideal fit for the attacking left-back role. He has excelled in the same position since his move to the Amex Stadium last summer. Brighton are very keen to keep Cucurella. They have already allowed Yves Bissouma to leave for Tottenham in a £25 million move.

The move was confirmed on Friday afternoon. But City’s interest is proving too difficult to resist and a deal is now likely to be agreed. Manchester City have made Cucurella one of their marquee players along with Leeds United’s Kalvin Philips.

Manchester City have already submitted a bid for Kalvin Philips. The midfielder has also reportedly told Leeds that he would like to move to Etihad stadium if a fee can be agreed. Manchester City have already secured the sensational signing of Erling Haaland earlier in this window.

Manchester City are also considering selling on Oleksandr Zinczenko if they sign Marc Cucurella. They are also in advanced negotiations with Arsenal for selling Gabriel Jesus. This will help the Premier League champions sign both of their marquee players within the budget.
