Man City close to sign Pep’s highly rated countryman player

According to transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City are ‘closing’ in on a deal to sign Anderlecht defender Sergio Gomez.

GUARDIOLA’S LEFT-BACK HUNT

Pep Guardiola will be looking for a new left-back after losing Oleksandr Zinchenko to Premier League rivals Arsenal and then missing out on Marc Cucurella, and it appears that he has identified his ideal target.

According to BBC Sport, the Sky Blues are in talks about a potential deal for 21-year-old Gomez, and after a quick development, his transfer to the Etihad could be announced soon.

Romano revealed on Twitter that it should only be a matter of time before Gomez is unveiled as a Manchester City player. He stated:

“Exclusive: Manchester City are nearing a deal with Anderlecht for Sergio Gómez.” The fee will be in excess of €10 million; final details will be worked out before the transaction is completed.

“The plan has always been for him to be loaned to Girona… However, City may now decide to keep Sergi.”

It’s believed that City’s initial plan was to buy Gomez and then loan him out again, but the fact that Guardiola is considering keeping him suggests that he sees his star potential.

According to Transfermarkt, the Spaniard, dubbed the “heir to Iniesta” by football journalist Ronan Murphy, had an outstanding season for Anderlecht last season, providing an incredible 15 assists and netting seven goals in all competitions.

With this kind of form from the wing-back position, it’s no surprise that the City manager wants him to be involved in and around the first team, and he would be a fantastic addition for the club’s future if they were able to secure his services.

Bernardo Silva opens up on one negative of playing for Man City

Titles are expected at Manchester City – more than one, at the very least. And they’ve done it every year since 2017, bringing nine major awards to the Etihad Stadium.

However, for Bernardo Silva, one of their standout players last season, there may be a sense that too much success breeds too much expectation, to the point where City are not being credited for the brilliance they continue to display throughout the season.

The Portugal international opened up about his time in the north of England following his best season yet last season, and the diminutive midfielder believes City’s players are underappreciated despite their accolades and dominance over the last half-decade.

“From Man City fans, definitely. I feel a lot of support, and they show a lot of appreciation for what I do,” Silva told ESPN after being asked whether he believed City get the credit they deserve over their performances.

“From [the] outside, it’s difficult. I’m not complaining here, but I feel like other clubs get a lot more credit than Man City for doing less. For example, when I was at Benfica – a huge club in Portugal with more fans, more everything – you do something nice, and they make it look like it’s great. Here at Man City, you do something great and they make it look like it’s just good.

“Again, I’m not complaining, but playing in the Premier League and winning four titles in five years and checking the Premier League team of the year every year and knowing that we’re never the team that has the most players. We don’t have the best manager, we don’t have the best players, but we still win four Premier Leagues in five years? It just doesn’t make sense. It probably shows that Man City players don’t get as much credit as they should.

“For me, it doesn’t matter honestly. I’m happy with the titles that we have and with the memories that in the last five years, we won four times. Of course, we don’t get the credit that we deserve.”
