Central Seville defender Diego Carlos emerged as a ‘leading’ option for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City in his position this summer.
Following the effective appeal of their two-year European ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sport this week, talks have begun to cover the future relocation activity of the Etihad club with a whole range of names linked to the Premier League with big-money transfers.
The latest name to join the fray is Seville’s 27-year-old center-back Diego Carlos, according to The Telegraph.
It’s claimed that the experienced defender emerged as a ‘key’ target for Pep Guardiola this summer, after attracting the interest of Tottenham and other European clubs.
Since signing out from French club Nantes for a whopping £ 13.5 million last summer, Carlos has developed himself as one of La Liga’s best-performing center-backs, recording 15 assists in 34 league appearances.
But most critically for Pep Guardiola, Carlos has achieved a transfer completion rate of 84.2 percent during the league competition.
