Manchester City Roundup: Negotiations underway for Fernando Reges; 2017/18 away kit launched



Manchester City are in talks with Galatasaray for their Brazilian midfielder Fernando Reges.

The Turkish outfit are keen on signing the 30-year-old this summer and both clubs are looking agree on a fee.

According to reports, Galatasaray are willing to pay around €5-6 million for the experienced defensive midfielder but Manchester City are determined to recoup around €8-9 million.

Fernando joined Manchester City from Porto in 2014 for a fee of £12million. He has a contract until 2019, but the midfielder has failed to establish himself as a regular starter at Etihad.

Galatasaray are hoping to reach a compromise for the player in the coming weeks. Reges is not a part of Guardiola’s first team plans anymore and was a squad player for most of the last season.

He will be hoping to play regularly next season and a move away is the ideal solution for him. With the World Cup coming up, Reges will be hoping for a national team call up.

Apparently, Reges has already agreed on personal terms with the Turkish giants.
