Manchester City are ready to rival any bid for 20 year old Croatian international defender Josko Gvardiol, according to The Standard.

Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all reportedly interested in signing the RB Leipzig defender who has impressed at the World Cup with Croatia.

The 20-year-old has shown his capabilities on the world stage in Qatar, none more so than during Croatia’s progression to the last eight of the competition.

Gvardiol joined German side RB Leipzig back in 2020 and has slowly progressed into one of the Bundesliga’s best central defenders.
