Title: Manchester City’s Midfielder Demolished as Riyadh Crescent Eyes Portuguese International B Seat for 80 Million Euros
Manchester City, who recently clinched the treble, has encountered a challenging summer transfer season as two key midfielders have departed from the club. Captain Ilkay Gundogan has joined Barcelona on a free transfer, while Riyad Mahrez is set to pursue his footballing career in Saudi Arabia, leaving a void in the midfield of the Blue Moon Army.
In a recent report by Saudi media outlet “Today,” it is claimed that Riyadh Crescent is planning a marquee signing in the form of the Portuguese international, who plays in the coveted B seat. The transfer fee for the highly sought-after midfielder is expected to reach a whopping 80 million euros.
However, the report also states that Riyadh Crescent is yet to reach an agreement with Manchester City regarding the transfer fee for the B seat. In order to secure the versatile midfielder’s services, Riyadh Crescent has already allowed their own B seat player, Moussa Marega, to depart from the team’s training camp.
The potential move of the B seat player who played a crucial role in Manchester City’s incredible treble-winning campaign at the age of 28 would undoubtedly send shockwaves throughout the football world. It is well-known that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola respects his players’ decisions and does not force anyone to stay against their will. The close relationship between Gundogan and the B seat player further indicates that their departures were not forced by the club. Considering the remaining two years on the midfielder’s contract, Riyadh Crescent’s final transfer fee payment must exceed 80 million euros.
As Seat B prepares to join Riyadh Crescent, Mahrez is also set for a move within Saudi Arabia, with Jeddah National becoming his next footballing destination. Guardiola, the mastermind behind Manchester City’s success, is now tasked with rebuilding a champion midfielder for the Blue Moon Legion. It is speculated that Alvarez may be transformed into a midfielder, while young talent Phil Foden may also see more opportunities in the midfield.
Fans can take solace in the fact that as long as Guardiola remains at the helm of Manchester City, the club will continue to soar. The Blue Moon’s future looks bright.
