Manchester City are in gallant form in the Premier League this season, having won five of their six matches, having scored five or more goals in their last three wins. The attacking lineup has performed excellently so far and has paved the way to a great season in the making.
Despite his superb attacking mindset, which has brought him victories by big margins, their gaffer Pep Guardiola is worried about his backline and wants to bring in some more players in order to add to his defence, making it strong enough to vie with the big name clubs in Premier League.
Reportedly, the Spanish manager has got his eyes on the Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro, who is currently playing for the Italian club Juventus. The brilliant Selecao is one of the best full-backs in Europe in the current scenario and has attracted the eyes of a number of big-name clubs from all over Europe, especially from the Premier League.
The 26-year-old has been in fine form in the last couple of seasons in the Serie A, leading his club to glory in the last season in both the Supercoppa Italia and the Italian Serie A. He also displayed his superb skills in the Champions League and helped his side get to the final of the tournament where they were eventually beaten by the Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The Citizens have invested a huge amount of money this summer to bring in a number of fullbacks in the form of Kyle Walker from fellow Premier League rivals Tottenham, Benjamin Mendy from the French Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco and Danilo from the Spanish champions Real Madrid. However, they are still looking to get a player like Alex Sandro to strengthen their side even more in the next transfer window.
There have been a number of sumptuous offers from a number of big-name clubs in the Premier League including the reigning champions Chelsea. The Blues were almost sure they would bag the player for the new season in the summer transfer window but the deal did not materialise due to the hefty price tag that was put on the player by the Bianconeri.
Guardiola is set to try his level best to sign him despite his huge price in the transfer market as he is well aware of the quality that the player can add to his defence as well as attack with his hard-hitting tackles and darting runs down the flanks. But does Pep really need him?
