Josko Gvardiol agrees personal terms with Manchester City

Croatian defender Josko Gvardiol has reached an agreement on personal terms with Manchester City ahead of a move to the Etihad this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Manchester City have made RB Leipzig star Gvardiol one of their main targets for this summer’s transfer window, and have made an approach to his German club earlier in the window over a deal for him.

The Citizens have concluded negotiations with the 21-year-old centre-back over a potential transfer, and have agreed personal terms with the defender. Gvardiol dreams of a move to the Premier League and will be keen to join the league’s best team.

Negotiations will now take place between Manchester City and Leipzig over a transfer fee for the 21-year-old, who has a market value of around £64.5m.

Manchester City set to complete Josko Gvardiol signing

Leipzig have made their stance clear with Gvardiol as they will not stand in the way of a deal for him, provided that his fee is a world-record for a defender. The 21-year-old is expected to cost more than the £80m Manchester United paid for Harry Maguire.

Chelsea were close to signing Gvardiol last summer and in January but pulled out of a deal for the defender as they deemed him too expensive. It is widely expected that the Citizens will pull off a transfer for the Croatian.

Manchester City have already completed a deal for Mateo Kovacic and are in the running for Declan Rice, as Pep Guardiola looks to refresh his squad following their treble win. Gvardiol will be a good addition to the Citizens ahead of next season.
