PEP GUARDIOLA needs Male Town to make a shock move for Harry Winks.
The England star is going through an uncertain upcoming less than Jose Mourinho at Tottenham – but his outdated rival Guardiola is a serious admirer of the midfielder.
Winks, 24, signed a new five-12 months deal with Spurs only past summer under Mauricio Pochettino.
But the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton is probably to see his very first-workforce prospects constrained next term.
Spurs are always hesitant to sell to large-six rivals but Mourinho is desperate to make much more signings to set his personal stamp on his squad and is aware of he needs to market if there are to be any sizeable signings.
Winks is considered to be a person important asset who could be permitted to go, if Spurs bring in a bid in extra of £40million.
In spite of Mourinho’s issues with £56m club-report signing Tanguy Ndombele, it is really unlikely that the Frenchman would draw in a bid for something like the sum Spurs compensated to indicator him from Lyon past summertime.
Winks is observed as a Spanish-model midfielder, exceptional in possession, and regarded as ‘very considerably a Pep participant and not a Jose player’.
Guardiola does have decent solutions in central midfield but is explained to be intrigued by the prospect of creating Winks to his entire likely.
Winks was a normal starter for Spurs in the later on stages of the time but the club fought hand to land Hojbjerg, irrespective of stiff opposition from Everton.
And the Dane has been lined up for the deep-lying midfield job held by Winks.
If Tottenham suggest they will make it possible for Winks to go, there is probably to be robust interest from Spain and Italy.
But golf equipment from those people leagues would be less very likely than Metropolis to make a bid which could tempt Spurs to offer.
