‘Not An Upgrade, No Thanks’ ‘Please No’ Fans On Twitter React As City Are Linked With Potential Swap Deal

Manchester City are interested in signing Everton defender Mason Holgate, according to reports in England. Manager Pep Guardiola is looking to strengthen his centre-back options ahead of next season and the 24-year-old has been identified as a potential target.

It is even thought that John Stones could be offered the chance to return to Goodison Park with a suggestion that the 26-year-old may be used in a part-exchange deal.

Supporters would not be keen on swapping Stones for Holgate:


You can understand the thinking behind the interest in Holgate on one level. The 23-year-old is a good passer of the ball, but at 6ft tall, he is hardly a towering presence at the back.

If he was brought in alongside another more authoritative, commanding centre-half, it would probably make more sense, but it remains to be seen whether City will indeed splash the cash on two new centre-backs this summer.
