Report: Man City suffer transfer blow with 24 y/o set to agree four-year deal with Milan


Manchester City are on the hunt for a left-back as Benjamin Mendy is suspended while awaiting his trial for alleged sex crimes, leaving Pep Guardiola with Oleksandr Zinchenko as his only natural option.

Joao Cancelo has impressed in the makeshift role, but Calciomercato (h/t Sport Witness) say City were looking to bring in another left-back – Theo Hernandez. Their pursuit has been dealt a blow, however, as the 24-year-old looks set to agree a new four-year deal with AC Milan.

Hernadez joined the Rossoneri from Real Madrid in 2019 and has gone on to make 106 appearances in all competitions, scoring 19 goals with 20 assists. The French international has been a regular at the San Siro and is happy in Italy, so he doesn’t have any intention of leaving.

City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain were all interested in Hernandez, but Calciomercato say a long-term deal worth €4m-a-year (£3.35m-a-year) now awaits him. Cancelo has proven more than capable at left-back at the Etihad Stadium, so Guardiola need not be in a rush to sign another defender.

Bringing in a striker to replace Sergio Aguero should remain the priority this summer.

    Speculation about Man City’s interest in Vlahovic is mere speculation unless this reporter has inside information so saying they have suffered a transfer blow may not be a correct assumption
