City Are Prepared To Match 35M Asking Price As They Look To See Off Chelsea In Pursuit Of Spanish Star

Manchester City are unlikely to be put off by Brighton’s valuation of left-back Marc Cucurella, according to ESPN.

Despite previous reports claiming that the Seagulls will hold out for around £45m, the website believe that the south coast club would be prepared to sell the Spaniard for £35m.

It is thought that such an asking price would not be deemed as “overly problematic” for City so there is a good chance that the Premier League champions will move ahead with their attempts to sign Cucurella.


The 23-year-old has also been linked with Chelsea in recent weeks, and the fact that the defender is available for a pretty reasonable fee may tempt Thomas Tuchel’s side into making their own offer for the player.

Manager Pep Guardiola is keen to strengthen his options on the left-hand side of defence. While Joao Cancelo has done a stellar job, there is a feeling that City could do with another player who is naturally left-footed.
