Manchester City and
Tottenham have reached agreement
on the sale of Kyle Walker over a fee
worth £50million.
City are understood to have offered
£45million plus a further £5m in addons
for the England international.
The 27-year-old Walker will head
up to Manchester for a medical with
City on Friday.
City boss Pep Guardiola is pushing
to sign at least three new fullbacks,
particularly in light of their
disappointment over Dani Alves
opting for Paris St Germain.
Walker has long been their No 1
target but as Sportsmail revealed the
clubs were locked at £10m apart last
month with City only prepared to
offer up to £40m.
Talks have intensified in recent
days and have now find a solution to
equal the world record fee paid for a
defender.
Tottenham manager Mauricio
Pochettino is set to get his wish for
Walker’s transfer saga to end before
the Tottenham’s tour to the USA.
Despite losing England’s firstchoice
right back, the news will come
as a boost to Pochettino, who didn’t
want the issue hanging over the club
going into the club’s tour of America
which kicks off onJuly 23 with a clash
against PSG.
Pochettino will now use the
money from Walker’s sale to bolster
his squad ahead of next season –
another reason why the Argentine
boss wanted a quick resolution to
Walker’s transfer to City.
