Man City now told to pay £87m to sign Guardiola target in 2024

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola has now been told how much it will cost to bring Florian Wirtz to Man City from Bayer Leverkusen in 2024.

It was TEAMtalk who revealed the German side’s asking price.

So, what is the latest on Manchester City target Florian Wirtz? Let’s take a look…

Well, it was SPORT in Spain who first revealed

That the treble winners want to sign the Germany international, and are planning to make a move in 2024.

Now, Bayer Leverkusen have named their price.

TEAMtalk believe Xabi Alonso’s side are demanding £87.2m for Wirtz, who is also attracting interest from Liverpool and Chelsea.

Man city wants to sign Wirtz

The 20-year-old has been in sensation form this season, showing no sign of any lasting damage after a serious knee injury put a hold on his stunning breakthrough in senior football.

Wirtz has scored six goals – while also providing nine assists – in just 16 appearances so far this term.

A story from 90min add that Manchester City recently sent scouts to watch Wirtz take on TSG Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, a game in which he scored as Bayer Leverkusen won 3-2.

Manchester City will have to make a huge statement if they want to sign Wirtz.

Should Bayer Leverkusen stand firm on their £87.2m asking price.

Then it would mean Manchester City would need to make Wirtz the second most expensive arrival at the Etihad Stadium behind the £100m man Jack Grealish.

The German would be sandwiched in between the England international and the £77.6m Josko Gvardiol.

It is – of course – a huge asking price from Bayer Leverkusen, although many expect Wirtz to eventually develop into a potential Ballon d’Or winner,

So his frightening potential is worth investing in. Be sure to keep an eye on this situation – .

As Chelsea are posing a real threat to Manchester City in this particular transfer battle.
