Ruben Dias

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City are now in talks with Benfica to sign Ruben Dias, and they are keen to include Nicolas Otamendi as a makeweight as part of the deal.

The Portuguese want £50 million for the defender, and Tottenham Hotspur are yet to submit a bid as they are focused on Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.

Spurs have identified Dias as an option should a move for the Slovakian fall through, but City see him as a top target.

Pep Guardiola’s side are keen on Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, but they haven’t been able to get a deal done for any and are now keen on the Portuguese.

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus hopes to keep the 23-year-old, but he admits his side are open to talk if they receive an important bid.

City want to strengthen their backline in order to pip Liverpool and co to the Premier League title this term, and they are ready to pull out all the stops for Dias with Tottenham stalling.
