Manchester City preparing stunning late moves for Real Madrid’s Isco and Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake, according to the Daily Express.
With days left in the transfer window, these moves would certainly send a shockwave through the top clubs in the Premier League.
City boss Pep Guardiola has been a long-time admirer of Spain international Isco, but has been reluctant to pull the trigger on a move so far this summer.
The 27-year-old is a stylish attacking midfielder and would seem a perfect fit at the Etihad, adding to this reports suggest Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is willing to let his player go to bring in revenue following a large rebuilding project this summer.
It isn’t just classy midfielders Pep is interested in, as the Express also report a possible late bid for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake.
Having been put off by Leicester City’s valuation for Harry Maguire, City could turn their attentions to the 24-year-old who made 33 Premier League appearances last term.
This summer has been relatively quiet in the blue half of Manchester on the transfer front, with just three signings made.
