The British media Daily Mail reported on the 25th, “Manchester City (Manchester City) has decided to give up recruiting Lucas Parketa and bring Eberetch Eze (25, Crystal Palace).”
Recruitment of a new midfielder has emerged as Manchester City’s homework. As leading midfielder The Bruyne was injured in the Premier League opening match against Burnley on the 11th, a substitute was needed. 스포츠토토
Initially, Parketa emerged as a strong candidate for recruitment. Manchester City reportedly offered West Ham a transfer fee of £80 million (about 136.1 billion won) to recruit Parketa.
There was a high possibility that the transfer would take place. Former West Ham player Frank McAubeni said in an interview, “I expected Parketa to play for West Ham for another year and transfer, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
“Paketa is such a great player that West Ham can’t keep.” “I just want to say thank you and say goodbye to him,” he said, adding weight to Parketa’s move to Manchester City.
The variable occurred suddenly. It has been revealed that Parketa is under investigation by the English Football Association for violating betting rules.
In the end, Manchester City gave up recruiting Parketa. I chose Eze as the next best option. He was in a position to look forward to the potential of attacking midfielder Eze, who also joined the England national team.
The recruitment of Eze is not a guaranteed step. The media said, “Manchester City’s recruitment of Eze will not be easy or cheap. Palace has no intention of letting him go,” he drew the line.
Negotiations on transfer fees are expected to be tough. According to the report, Palace are demanding at least £70 million (about KRW 117.2 billion) for Eze’s transfer fee.
