According to various news outlets Manchester City are now prepared to pay £50 million to sign Tottenham’s right back Kyle Walker.
City have set their eyes set on the right back since the end of last season. Kyle Walker himself has made it no secret that he would be happy to leave North London.
After releasing Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna, Manchester City is currently without a natural experienced right-back. Pep Guardiol had hoped to sign Dani Alves, but he was snatched away by Paris Saint-Germain at the last moment.
The 27-year-old has developed enormously since joining Spurs in 2009. He is a first choice player since last six seasons.
Manchester City had previously been unwilling to go above £40m for Walker but have now reportedly agreed to pay the £50m Spurs are after.
The £50m fee would match the world record transfer fee for a defender, paid by Paris Saint-Germain for David Luiz three years ago.
