According to The Sun, Manchester City are after Bayern Munich full-back Juan Bernat. The Spaniard was signed from Valencia in 2014 by none other than Pep Guardiola. The 23-year-old has made five appearances for the German juggernauts this season, in which he contributed with a goal and two assists, which are awe-inspiring stats for a defender. He has also played a sizable amount for his country: from the Spain U16’s to the senior team, he has a total of 41 appearances and six goals.
To play for a club like Bayern at such a young age is a breathtaking feat, but to be signed by one of the greatest managers on the planet makes it even more spectacular. He could play a crucial part in Man City’s future, and his signing would mean the end for Aleksandar Kolarov and possibly Gael Clichy. For only £20 million, it would be nothing short of a bargain.
The coming transfer windows will be critical to the growth of the squad, as Pep will look to make the finishing touches to an already stunning team.
