The race for the signature of 22-year-old Algerian midfielder Ismaël Bennacer has had a new candidate as RMC Sport is reporting that current Premier League Champions Manchester City have made contact with the AC Milan midfielder.
Barely hours after Kick442.com reported that PSG was preparing a second offer of €50 Million for the services of the former Empoli midfield genius, City boss Pep Guardiola has reportedly had talks with the midfielder in view of taking him to the Etihad Stadium.
City are looking to boast their midfield options and could hijack the 2019 AFCON most valuable player in a flash.
The presence of Riyad Mahrez at Manchester City could be a favorable factor for the Citizens.
The Arles-native recently expressed his desire to stay at the San Siro and win trophies. But this new temptation is tough to resist especially if either City or PSG can meet his €50 Million asking price holding in mind the fact that, they paid just €16 to get the 22-year-old from Empoli 10 months ago.
The one-time Arsenal youth team midfielder is on contract with the seven-time European champions till the summer of 2024.
The ex-Arsenal trainee has featured in 23 of AC Milan’s 36 games in all competitions this term.
He has made 22 appearances for his country. Unfortunately just like the case of AC Milan, he is still running after his first goal for country.
A switch to the Parc the Prince or the Etihad Stadium will be a continuation to the rise to stardom for the 2019 AFCON most valuable player.
