Man City make €89M bid for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez

Manchester City are launching a bid for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez.

Fed-up with Napoli's stubborn negotiating tactics for Kalidou Koulibaly, AS says City have turned to Uruguay international Gimenez.

City have tabled a massive €89m to Atletico for Gimenez. The bid could rise to €94m in bonuses.

Atletico, however, are reluctant to negotiate and have referred City to Gimenez's €120m buyout clause.

But it's claimed this is just a tactic and that GM Miguel Angel Gil Marin is prepared to sell Gimenez if City make their bid €90m up front.
