Manchester City are interested in signing 21 year old RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol but RB Leipzig want over £85million if they are to sell the Croatian defender this summer, according to Daily Mail.

Gvardiol is regarded as one of the best young defenders in Europe and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reportedly wants to add him to the squad for next season.

Gvardiol, who can operate at centre half and left back, would solve some problems for Guardiola but the German club are setting an asking price of more than £85million if they are to sanction the Croatia international’s departure.

Chelsea tried to sign the Croatian international last summer and may be interested again this summer.
