Real Betis have made a formal bid to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City on an initial season-long loan that could be made permanent, Mundo Deportivo reports.
Zinchenko, 21, is subject to heavy interest from the La Liga club and it is reported that they want him on loan this season with either an option or obligation to buy him next summer for €12million (£10.8million).
That is significantly lower than the £16million City accepted from Wolves before Zinchenko snubbed a move, but Betis are offering the incentive of only owning 80% of his rights, which in English terms means City would have a 20% sell-on clause.
Betis want to pay any fee in three instalments and are hoping Manchester City accept their offer. They plan to use Zinchenko at both left-back and in central midfield, taking advantage of his versatility.
City have yet to make it known if they will let the Ukraine international go after Kevin De Bruyne got injured, making Betis wait for an answer.
