Sunderland have priced their star keeper and City target Jordan Pickford at £30m.
Sunderland Manager, David Moyes wants to get as much money on the sales of players to help with rebuild of the now relegated Sunderland side.
City are also looking for a new keeper with Willy Caballero out of contract this summer, and Claudio Bravo having an unconvincing season with the blues’.
Signing Pickford would mean that the Cityzens will be able to have a reliable keeper, further enhancing their style of passing from the back.
£30m for the keeper is a price tag that City will have no difficulty meeting with their finances, however it’s a figure that will need justifying.
Pickford is a player who is likely to want to stay and play for a premier league side, as opposed to playing in the league below with current club Sunderland.
This could fuel a move to City, with the likes of Everton also looking to sign the player. However City would be a more ideal move for Pickford as he would have the allure of top 4 football, and quite possibly champions league football; this in coherence with playing and properly competing in the domestic cups.
