Manchester City reveal the amount they will pay for Kyle Walker – NOT a world record fee

Kyle Walker will NOT become the most expensive defender in history – not yet anyway.

Manchester City have issued a briefing to the press today, stating that they will pay an initial £45million, to be paid in instalments. That will be followed by a maximum of £5million in add-ons based on his successes in the Premier League and Champions League, which would equal the current world record for a defender – though with the way the transfer market is going, another club may have broken the record by then!

Walker is expected to become a City player today with a medical scheduled after drawn out talks between the clubs. He could soon be followed by Benjamin Mendy, although that deal is still not quite over the line.
