Man City in talks to buy Brazilian club Bahia

Manchester City are in talks to buy Brazilian club Bahia.

The City Football Group (CFG) currently owns ten clubs around the globe and is looking to expand further.

The Sun says CFG sources say there is a chance a deal could be done for the Brazilian second tier club – but stressed nothing is close to being agreed.

Reports in South America earlier this month claimed the transaction would be worth up to £104 million if it is completed – although only £8million of that would be up front.

Bahia president Guilherme Bellintani held talks at the Etihad earlier this month before watching Pep Guardiola's side take on Atletico Madrid later that evening.

CFG have been linked in the past with top flight Atletico Mineiro but are looking to sign a club who are not in the traditional top 12 in Brazil.
