Manchester City has achieved half success in their pursuit of two Tottenham stars as the Lilywhites agree to sell right back, Kyle Walker, but shut down their enquiry for left back Danny Rose.
The Premier League runners up had insisted on at least £50 million to do a deal with the Citizens over the transfer of Kyle Walker who has been keen to join Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium. This fee was believed to have been the reason the move had not been finalised all this while. However, the two clubs have reached a compromise with City agreeing to pay some part of the £50 million in further instalments based on the player’s performance for them.
Walker, 27 has been looking for a move away since he was informed that he would double his current £70,000 per week if he left the north Londoners. The Etihad club plan to travel with the England international on Monday as they begin the preseason tour in the United States.
Walker is due to have his medical today, ahead of signing his contract that would tie him down with City for at least five years.
Meanwhile, Tottenham was quick to turn down City’s enquiry over the availability of Danny Rose. The left back has not played since January, but he is still considered one of the best left backs in the Premier League right now.
