Manchester City set to complete third summer signing

Manchester City are reportedly set to complete the signing of América de Quito midfielder José Cifuentes this week.

Cifuentes starred for Ecuador at the Under-20 World Cup this summer and continues to attract interest from across Europe.

But according to Radio Caravana, City have put forward the ‘best proposal’ and will secure a deal for the 20-year-old imminently.

It’s understood that Cifuentes will be loaned out immediately to an unnamed Croatian side despite interest from Celtic.

The Premier League champions have a history of stockpiling South American talent, as seen with Douglas Luiz and Marlos Moreno.

City are also pursuing a deal for Juventus defender João Cancelo.
