Alex Grimaldo joins the list of fullbacks linked to Manchester City. The player is rumored for the exit door as Benfica need cash and City could seal this quickly.

Portuguese journo Pedro Almeida reported the fee could be €30m. The Spanish fullback has been linked plenty of times in the past, but this one seems more serious as City look to make a bid officially.

Grimaldo is a serious and good fullback and would contend immediately for the starting left back position with Oleks Zinchenko.

Depth can only be a positive and the allure for a Spanish player to be coached by Pep Guardiola could push this move through.

Other reports have seen City only be reported to bring in two or three players this summer and if this is one of them that would work. Around 30 for Grimaldo and whatever is spent for Jack Grealish and /or Harry Kane or another striker would be more than plenty for Man City to compete for all the trophies this upcoming season.
