Man City set to make Real Madrid ace first buy of a summer spree
Manchester City fans could well see a raft of huge names arriving at the Etihad next season, according to our odds-compilers. And that influx of top talent looks set to be spearheaded by Isco, who is 10/11 to join the Premier League giants this summer.
The Real Madrid midfielder has been a vital part of the club’s domination on the European stage, starring in their Champions League triumphs of 2013 and 2016 – and he’s continued to impress this term, with six goals and as many assists so far this season.
But he’s far from the only potential arrival. Our traders make it 6/4 that Portuguese powerhouse William Carvalho joins Pep Guardiola’s revolution this summer, while there’s also a trio of homegrown talents catching the City gaffer’s eye.
Southampton star Ryan Bertrand (7/4) could solve the Citizens’ continued issues at left-back, while Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford (2/1) and Middlesbrough centre-back Ben Gibson (9/4) are also believed to be on the Spaniard’s wishlist.
However, it’s the possibility of signing two more of the continent’s biggest names which could get fans of the North-West outfit really excited.
Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara is 9/4 to reunite with his former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss in Manchester, while it’s 5/2 for the North-West outfit to win this summer’s transfer battle for in-demand Torino hitman Andrea Belotti.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “A raft of marquee signings could be arriving at the Etihad this summer, starting with Isco – as Pep looks to boost City’s status as a European powerhouse.”
