Manchester City eyeing Marc Cucurella bid

Pep Guardiola-Manchester City

Manchester City are looking to improve their defensive options during the summer transfer window, and Pep Guardiola has identified Marc Cucurella as a potential target.

As per reports, the champions are looking to submit a bid for the 23-year-old Spaniard. 

The Brighton left-back has had an impressive Premier League campaign with the Seagulls, and he could be a quality acquisition for the Premier League champions.

Manchester City have been relying on Zinchenko and Cancelo as their left-backs this past season, and the arrival of Cucurella would allow the Portuguese international defender to play in his natural role as a right back.

Furthermore, the Brighton defender would be an upgrade on Zinchenko as well.

Cucurella is undoubtedly one of the best-attacking fullbacks in the league right now, and his style of play should help him fit in at Manchester City with ease.

It will be interesting to see whether the Premier League champions can now agree on a fee with Brighton for the highly talented defender.

The 23-year-old is currently at the peak of his powers, and he could settle in quickly and make an immediate impact at Manchester City next season. Also, he is likely to improve further with experience and game time. A manager like Guardiola could work wonders with him. 

The opportunity to join a club like Manchester City is likely to be a tempting proposition for the defender, and he will be desperate to compete in the Champions league with them.

Manchester City certainly have the finances to tempt the player and Brighton into a transfer, and it will be interesting to see how things unfold over the next few weeks.
