£25m: Manchester City to sign midfielder Arsenal previously bid for

Manchester City are said to be closing in on a £25m deal to bring Sporting CP’s William Carvalho to the Etihad.

  • Carvalho, 24, is a right-footed defensive midfielder
  • He signed a new deal with Sporting at the start of 2016
  • He is under contract until 2020

Yes, that’s right, William Carvalho – the midfielder linked with Arsenal every summer for the last four or five years looks like he could be Manchester bound.

That’s according to an EXCLUSIVE in the Daily Star at least.

Back in 2014 Arsenal reportedly failed with a deadline day bid for the player and the rumours haven’t really stopped since then.

Maybe they will now, but I wouldn’t count on it.
