Manchester City are looking for a left defender!

Manchester City are considering buying Mark Cucurella from Brighton and Kieran Tierney from Arsenal! On the other hand, the Cityzens are looking for a new club for Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The left-back problem has existed at the Etihad for several years. Initially, Benjamin Mendy was the main one in this position, but the Frenchman had problems with the law. He can be imprisoned for ten years for rape - in fact, this is the end of his football career. Another member of the Cityzens’ roster is Joao Cancelo, who prefers to play on the opposite wing. Pep Guardiola tried to fill the left wing with Ukrainian Oleksandr Zinchenko, whose main role is the central midfielder. However, this summer Manchester City are ready to buy a profile wingback for the future.

The first candidate for strengthening is the 23-year-old Brighton defender Mark Cucurella, who, before coming to the Albion, played consistently for Getafe for two years. With Mark, the Madrid club was one of the best defensive players in La Liga. Plus, Brighton don’t concede very much, which is a considerable merit of Cucurella. It’s not surprising that the Seagulls are asking for 50 million euros for the Barcelona product. We are sure that Manchester City will try to bargain, because the transfer fee for the young Spaniard is half that.

The Cityzens are also following Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney. The 25-year-old defender has three years with the Gunners and five with Celtic. As part of the Celts, the Scot has repeatedly taken gold medals, so he has a champion character. This is exactly the kind of stuff Guardiola wants to see in Manchester, wanting to improve an already powerful team and finally lead it to success in the Champions League.

If at least one of the above transfers does take place, then Oleksandr Zinchenko will be forced to leave the Etihad, as there will be no place for him even on the bench. The media report that Everton and Newcastle are interested in the 25-year-old centre-half. As part of the Toffees, Zinchenko can reunite with his partner in the Ukrainian national team Vitaliy Mykolenko. And the Magpies, who have grown rich rapidly after the arrival of Arabian investors, do not mind getting the reigning champion of England.

This off-season, Manchester City solved the problem with a goal-scoring striker by purchasing the brilliant Erling Haaland. Now they will try to close the issue with the left back. The Cityzens also need a quality centre-half to replace Fernandinho. Considering the huge financial possibilities of the Mancunians and their indefatigable ambitions, by the start of the next season they will become even stronger and more balanced, which will allow them to fight for all possible trophies.
