According to Sky Sports Pep Guardiola’s City have opened talks with Benfica regarding a possible cash plus Otamendi deal for Dias.

It is understood that Benfica value their star-defender at around £50m but could be tempted to lower their initial asking price should they agree to take out-of-favour Otamendi off of City’s hands too.

City had been strongly linked with a move for Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly but talks for the 29-year-old defender were virtually impossible to navigate due to the club’s damaged relationship dating back to when Jorginho joined Chelsea in 2018, as per Fabrizio Romano.

Despite City’s long pursuit for a new centre-back to partner alongside new signing Nathan Ake, Guardiola’s side looks to have finally made some progress in the form of Dias.

Would you be happy with Dias, City fans? – Let us know in the comments.
