This season, Manchester City have looked better than ever. Currently, in contention to win the treble, City has performed well offensively and defensively. While the Premier League title race is still intense, manager Pep Guardiola can be proud of the performances MCFC have displayed this season.
Strong tactics and a mix of talented players have helped City to rise to the occasion. Now if reports are to be believed, Guardiola is looking to add more talent to his already capable squad. As per reports, City is looking to prepare a bid for Napoli defender Kim Min-Jae. The club will bid around the range of €60m for the South Korean national.
Min-Jae has been a standout player for Napoli. Operating as a center-back, he helped Napoli win its third-ever Scudetto for the first time in 33 years this season. With 42 appearances for his side, Min-Jae displayed good passing, won aerial duels, intercepted passes, and gave it his all on the pitch.
A player like Min-Jae can certainly help City increase their options defensively. However, it won’t be easy to sign the South Korean national. Not only MCFC, but their derby rivals Manchester United too have shown interest in Min-Jae. While the race to sign the South Korean will intensify when the transfer window opens, Guardiola and City will now want to focus on the task at hand.
Manchester City will travel to Santiago Bernabeu to face Real Madrid
After launching an intense attack at the top of the table in the Premier League, Manchester City will now focus on their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. This match will indeed be crucial for City who will want to register a win over the Champions League’s most successful team and increase their chances of winning the cup for the first time.
Going into the game, Guardiola will have a fully fit squad available for selection. The City manager will indeed feel the pressure as he and his team prepare to face Madrid. While Guardiola has brought a lot of success to the Etihad, the only blemish on his record has been a failure to win the Champions League. Is this the season where the Spanish coach will lead City to European glory?
