Manchester City join Manchester United in race for Carlos Soler
When it comes to the transfer market, Manchester City are simply one of the best in the business.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Manchester City have joined Manchester United in race for Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler.
Carlos Soler has scored four goals in 49 games for Valencia since joining the club.
The 21-year-old has long been touted as one of Spain’s most promising young talents.
Carlos Soler has represented Spain at Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning nine caps and scoring one goal.
The Spain Under-21 international has impressed in La Liga this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
Pep Guardiola wants to sign a new midfielder and Soler is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The 21-year-old has been long term target of Pep Guardiola as the manager look to bolster his midfield options for the next season.
According to Teamtalk via Don Balon, “Pep Guardiola has urged Manchester City to beat Manchester United to the signing of a highly-rated La Liga midfielder. Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that Guardiola has recommended Carlos Soler to the City board as a possible summer signing and would have no hesitation endorsing the payment of his 60 million euros release clause. Guardiola apparently believes that Soler would settle straight into City’s first team, and given the fees paid for players under his tenure so far, the reported 60 million euros asking price will not be a huge obstacle.”
