Manchester City are to approach Brighton & Hove Albion with a bid for left-back Marc Cucurella. He joined Brighton last summer for 15.4 million pounds. He comes from Getafe. Cucurella is a 23-year-old left-back who has put in a strong first year. Moreover, he was voted Brighton’s 2021–22 Player of the Season.
Manchester City need a specialist left back
Pep Guardiola is very committed to signing his fellow Spaniard. This is because Manchester City have a desperate need to sign a left-back this summer. They have played multiple seasons without a specialist left-back. Thus this could be the season where they finally bring in a specialist left back. Many players have rotated in the left-back position. These players are Nathan Ake, Joao Cancello and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Cucurella is Manchester City’s top left-back target this summer. Moreover, Manchester City are prepared to submit their first proposal for Cucurella. This bid will cost up to £45 million. Also, they are going to begin talks with the player.
Moreover, Manchester City are the Premier League Champions. This will attract the player a lot. Moreover, the club will begin advanced talks with Brighton and Hove Albion in the coming days. Graham Potter’s side already lined up a successor for Cucurella. He is Porto left-back named Zaidu Sanusi. Moreover, if Cucurella leaves then they will go in for him. Thus he is identified as Brighton’s favorite target if Marc Cucurella moves to Manchester City this summer.
Moreover, Manchester City have already brought in the services of Erling Braut Haaland and Julian Alvarez. These two players are attackers and both play the No. 9 position. Erling Haaland especially is expected to have a thundering season. Furthermore, Manchester City are also looking to bring in Kalvin Phillips. He is a defensive midfielder for Leeds United. Kalvin Phillips will be the replacement for Fernandinho.
