Manchester City has struggled to complete a transfer for RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiolin in the last few weeks, and it seems they are set to miss out on the Croatian talent.
He is Pep Guardiola’s top target in this transfer window as the Spanish manager is keen to improve his treble-winning squad before next season starts.
Leipzig has made some sales in this transfer window, so they are financially healthy and do not have to sell any of their remaining players.
This is a reason they have decided to demand 100m euros from City, a fee that makes the youngster slightly over-priced, but the European champions are insisting on the deal.
The defender has agreed to personal terms, but Leipzig is not in the mood to offer discounts for his signature, which is a problem for City. But a report on Football Insider reveals the Citizens are confident in completing the transfer soon.
They acknowledge there have been setbacks so far, but it should not hinder them from getting a deal done, even though he has already missed a significant part of pre-season.
