Manchester City is completing the transfer of Croatian center-back Josko Gvardiol.
The Croatian defender will become the most expensive defender in football history, as City is set to pay 90 million euros for his transfer.
Gvardiol is undergoing medical tests and will join the reigning English champions from RB Leipzig for a record sum.
The transfer to City has also been confirmed by the Spanish coach Pep Guardiola.
Pep mentioned that Gvardiol has a nice last name, jokingly stating that having six center-backs in the squad isn’t too many.
“Gvardiol is undergoing medical tests, and we hope to finalize it quickly, in the coming hours or days. What a nice last name he has.”
“I don’t think having six center-backs is too many, as the league is very long, and we have a lot of matches available,” the Spanish coach expressed.
The upcoming hours or days are expected to be decisive for Gvardiol’s official announcement as a new Manchester City player.
