Man City want to sign defender

Pep Guardiola Man City manager

Manchester City will reportedly hold a board meeting this weekend to discuss potential plans to sign a central defender in January.

The Guardian say chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak is ready to sanction the move if Pep Guardiola desires.

It is added that City did not plan to act this winter but Vincent Kompany’s latest injury may change their plans.

City were linked with Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci and Aymeric Laporte of Athletic Bilbao in the summer.
