Man City make shock move to bring Kompany back from Anderlecht

Manchester City have approached Anderlecht player-manager Vincent Kompany about a stunning return.

The Daily Mail says Kompany, who had a mixed first term at the helm, intends to stay in the Belgian capital and that could stretch beyond the initially agreed 2022.

City had informally discussed the prospect of the defender moving back to the Etihad Stadium and hope he will be ready to take up a prominent position in the future.

Kompany has a Masters in Business Administration and, although now coaching, could see his long-term calling away from the pitch.

One area City are attempting to recruit in is Pep Guardiola's assistant manager as the Catalan continues to hunt for Mikel Arteta's successor.
