Following the Dani Alves Debacle, Manchester City have decided to act quickly to wrap up deals for their full-back targets. And according to Martin Blackburn of The Sun, they’re lining up a £30 million bid for Ryan Bertrand of Southampton.

Bertrand is Pep Guardiola’s favorite English left-back in the market, and with the homegrown quota in need of improving, City want to sign Ryan to back up their top target, Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy. With two top-class left-backs in the squad, the Sky Blues will hope to finally solve their problems in the position.

As for right-backs, City are looking to secure a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for Kyle Walker as soon as possible, maybe before the US tour begins. Tottenham stand firm at their £50 million asking price, and City will have to pay that since Spurs know they’re desperate for a right-back after losing Dani Alves and having already released Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna.
