Manchester City are presently on a roll in the Premier League, having clinched victories in all but one of their last seven games so far this season. They are currently on the top of the table and are looking forward to continuing their blistering run in the future as well.
The Citizens are, however, in a spot of a bother with the composition of their defence, especially with the dire requirement of a top class left back on their side. They had one of the best recruits for the left back position in the form of Benjamin Mendy but with Mendy’s long-term injury, Pep might bid for another player in the same position in the next transfer window.
Among a number of names who are being watched over by the scouts of Manchester City, the name of the Spanish youngster Alex Grimaldo has taken centre stage as a viable recruitment for the aforementioned position. The 22-year-old has been one of the best players in the left back position in Europe at the moment and might be roped in by the Citizens in the next transfer window.
Currently plying his trade at Benfica, the player has made his way into the first eleven through the ranks with his dedication and hard work. A Barcelona reject, the youngster signed for the Portuguese club in 2016 and helped them be crowned as the champions in the Super Lig last season, proving his worth as one of the indispensable players in their lineup.
His brilliant performances have attracted the attention of a number of big-name clubs in European football including Manchester City. The 22-year-old left back is on the top of his form at the present moment and the Citizens are sure that he might be a very valuable addition to their side.
The young Spaniard played an array of matches for his former side Barcelona in their B team but was never given the opportunity to feature for the senior side despite performing well for their B team. This soured the relationship between the club and the player, which finally led him to part ways with the Blaugrana and try his luck with the Portuguese club.
Manchester City broke their bank in the summer transfer window to bring in a number of players to strengthen their defence in the form of Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo. They might look to do the same again in the next transfer season that commences in January next year and bring in some more players for their defensive ranks, out of whom one might be the young Spaniard Grimaldo.
