Manchester City could land long-term target on the cheap this summer – report

Manchester City remain interested in England left-back Ryan Bertrand and he is likely to be sold by Southampton if they are relegated, according to the Telegraph.

Bertrand, 28, has been a commonly linked name over recent transfer windows and it was thought last summer that City were close to signing him before Dani Alves’ U-turn meant the club had to invest instead in a full-back capable of playing on both flanks, leading to Danilo’s arrival from Real Madrid.

City have been without a specialist left-back for most of the 2017-18 season due to Benjamin Mendy’s injury, but Fabian Delph has proven to be an excellent deputy in his makeshift role, while Oleksandr Zinchenko and Danilo have also put in some good performances.

Should Southampton be relegated however, City could have the opportunity to sign a player they have been keen on for a long time at a knockdown price, and it would enable them to bring in a second specialist left-back without breaking the bank.

Another option is Angelino, the 21-year-old on loan at NAC Breda, who has shone this season in the Dutch Eredivisie and recently won his fourth Rookie of the Month award of the campaign.
