‘Please take him’, ‘Anyone is better than Mendy’ – Fans reacts Man City Receive Major Boost In Left-Back Pursuit


Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a report which claims Álex Grimaldo has informed Benfica that he wants to listen to offers from the premier league champions.

Earlier this week, it has been reported that the Benfica man was targeted by Pep Guardiola’s side for the summer transfer window.

Grimaldo, who has represented Spain at youth level and began his career at Barcelona, has been linked with Manchester City before and is considered one of the best left-backs in Europe.

According to Pedro Almeida, Grimaldo has informed his side that he wants to listen to offers from the Citizens.

The Journalist had earlier claimed talks had opened between City and Benfica for Grimaldo, with Portuguese club wanting €30M for the left-back.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra and City Chief, many Man City fans have have been expressing their thoughts and opinions.

It remains to be seen what City do in the summer, but it’s clear they need a new left back with neither Benjamin Mendy or Oleksandr Zinchenko completely convincing in recent seasons.

While there are several areas of the field where City could upgrade in, one that you’d have to consider a priority is at left-back.

The full-back spot in particular remains an issue throughout Pep Guardiola’s time at the club, with Benjamin Mendy failing to push his game on.

The French international has had his fair share of troubles with recurrent injuries coupled with poor form and is starting to turn into a liability for Pep Guardiola.

The use of Zinchenko and the recent form of Joao Cancelo may have provided yet another short-term solution, but a competent true left-back is needed at the club.
