World News – GB – Man City dealt a double blow to the defender as Atletico Madrid and Sevilla play hardball


Manchester City’s hopes to bolster their defense suffered a setback, with offers from La Liga duo Jose Gimenez and Jules Kounde failing to progress, according to reports

Coach Pep Guardiola wants defensive reinforcements after City showed their vulnerability at the back for much of last season

He has already secured Nathan Ake for £ 41million and the Dutchman played alongside Fernandinho in City’s first 3-1 win at Wolves
