Manchester City are plotting a summer move for Sao Paulo defender Eder Militao this summer. According to recent reports, the Citizens of Manchester are eager to seal a move for the Brazilian youngster when the transfer window opens in the summer.

It is believed that the Citizens are currently weighing up their options and could make an offer for Militao’s signature at the end of the current season. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a magnificent campaign for Sao Paulo so far and his dazzling displays in the Brazilian top-flight has alerted a whole host of clubs which includes the Blues of Manchester. His impressive performances have caught the eyes of City chiefs, who are keeping tabs on his development in Brazil.

Militao is currently priced at £20m by Sao Paulo which shouldn’t be a worry for big spenders, Man City. The Sertãozinho-born starlet is young, talented and has a lot of potential which is exactly what the Premier League champions-elect are looking for in the off-season. However, the Brazilian centre-back is yet to prove his worth outside the top tier of Brazilian football so it might be a risk for City to bring him to the Premier League this summer.

The Carabao Cup champions are currently sitting at the top of the league table with a healthy 13 point advantage and are all set to secure another Premier League title in the coming weeks. Guardiola’s side have already bagged the League Cup earlier this year but their underwhelming performance in the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League this term will be a cause for concern. The Citizens are in need to bring in some fresh faces this summer so that they can maintain their dominance in both domestic and European football.

The addition of Militao will undoubtedly bolster Guardiola’s defensive options ahead of the new campaign. Manchester City have the likes of Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi vying for a place in their first-team. The potential acquisition of Militao will definitely add more competition for places in the City squad.

The Brazilian starlet is highly versatile and can operate in a number of different positions across the pitch. He primarily operates as a centre-back but can also be deployed in midfield which makes him a perfect fit for Guardiola’s style of play at the Etihad Stadium. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Militao and whether he ends up making a move to the Premier League in the near future.
