Man City boss Guardiola pushes to sign Grimaldo in January

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants to sign Benfica fullback Alex Grimaldo in January.

It's been revealed Guardiola and his brother Pere, who is an agent, made a scouting check on Grimaldo on Sunday against SC Braga.

Guardiola wants to bring the young Spaniard to England immediately, says Don Balon, and is planning a January bid for the youngster.

Grimaldo is a La Masia graduate and former Barcelona B player.

Given his background, Guardiola is convinced Grimaldo will fit seamlessly into his playing system at City for the second-half of the season.
