Man City takeover talks of Troyes remain on track

Manchester City's takeover talks of Troyes remain on track.

The Irish Times says the City Football Group already have nine sides in their stable, spearheaded by the four-time Premier League champions.

ButCFG bosses want to close out a deal to purchase the French second-division outfit as their tenth team.

The report adds that they have been in discussions with a number of sides in France including Nancy.

But sources suggest ESTAC Troyes is their first choice and a deal could get done for “single-digit millions" of euros.

Like with Spain's Girona and recently-acquired Lommel in Belgium, Troyes would be an opportunity to invest in a smaller European side to help develop young talents and build experience.
