According to news courtesy of La Gazzetta dello Sport via Milan Live, Man City have reignited their interest in AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer – with manager Pep Guardola apparently falling ‘in love‘ with the player.
Bennacer, who has started 25 Serie A games under Stefano Pioli this season, making a noteworthy 2.3 tackles per game in the middle of the park according to WhoScored, is now re-attracting Guardiola’s interest as we consider possible midfield additions.
Record singing Rodrigo has arguably failed to fill the Brazilian’s boots, with Bennacer now being linked to an Etihad move.
As a result, many Sky Blues have begged our manager by proxy to make the move happen – even if it means having to pay a €50 million (£45.06 million) release clause.
