Man City want Liverpool, Man Utd target as Koulibaly alternative

Sevilla’s Diego Carlos has emerged as the latest defensive target for Manchester City as they look to improve their squad, according to reports.

Pep Guardiola wants to bolster his defensive ranks ahead of the new Premier League season to cut the gap with Liverpool. He has already added Nathan Ake from Bournemouth, but wants another option to start alongside Aymeric Laporte.

To date, . The Napoli defender is one of the best players in the world in his position, but negotiations are not easy.



Napoli claim City do not want to contact them directly because they are still bitter about Jorginho moving to Chelsea from the Serie A side two years ago.

However, reports over the weekend suggested this could be a critical few days if City want to make a new offer for the Senegal international.

Now, Sport claim that City are not willing to meet the €85m asking price for Koulibaly. That’s because it would not be a worthwhile investment for a 29-year-old.

Therefore, they have switched focus to other targets. The report claims that Sevilla’s Diego Carlos is now firmly on their wishlist.

Carlos has been linked with a move to Liverpool or Manchester United recently. The Brazilian had a positive season with Sevilla, leading to victory in the Europa League, but the Spanish club could cash in on him.

According to Sport, City are now considering a bid for the 27-year-old. They know he is in his prime, so would instantly improve their defence.

However, first they must reduce the asking price. Carlos has a release clause of €70m, which City are not willing to pay.

Highly-rated Man Utd youngster closing in on loan exit

Teenager James Garner is closing in on a loan exit from Man Utd, the PA news agency understands.

The highly-rated 19-year-old made his debut in February 2019 and has made seven appearances in total for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

But Donny van de Beek’s arrival has only increased the competition in United’s midfield and Garner is set to leave on a season-long loan to get some much-needed first-team experience.



The teenager has been tracked by a number of Sky Bet Championship clubs and is looking to prove himself at that level in the 2020-21 campaign.

Blackburn and Millwall are believed to be among those interested along with Huddersfield, whose head coach Carlos Corberan met Garner before the 3-3 draw with United’s Under-23s at the end of August.

Joel Pereira has already joined Huddersfield on loan from Man Utd, while Tahith Chong, Aliou Traore and Matej Kovar have left the Old Trafford giants to gain experience elsewhere on loan this season.

Newly-capped Wales international Dylan Levitt is understood to be close to a loan exit, while Ethan Laird, Arnau Puigmal and Max Taylor are also attracting interest.

There is also interest in defender Di’Shon Bernard, but fellow centre-back Teden Mengi and Northern Ireland international Ethan Galbraith are set to stay with Neil Wood’s under-23s this season.
