Man City keen to do summer swap deal for unhappy La Liga star

Manchester City are setting up a swap deal with Atletico Madrid which would see midfielder Javi Garcia depart and defender Toby Alderweireld arrive.

Garcia has struggled to establish himself in the Premier League since his £15.8million switch from Portugese giants Benfica on the last day of the summer transfer window in 2012.

La Liga title challengers Atletico wanted to buy Garcia in January, according to a City insider.

He was brought in by then-boss Roberto Mancini as a natural replacement for Dutch hardman Nigel de Jong, who left for Serie A side AC Milan after failing to agree a new contract, but the Spaniard has found chances hard to come by.

The 27-year-old has only tended to start matches in the absence of regulars Yaya Toure and Fernandinho. (SportsDirectNews)

It would not be a shock to see this happen.
