Manchester City open talks for Alex Grimaldo

Manchester City are allegedly interested in signing Benfica defender Alex Grimaldo during the summer transfer season.

Despite winning the Premier League title last season, Pep Guardiola rotated his left-backs.

While Man City have plenty of options on that side of the game, Benjamin Mendy has been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium in the coming weeks.

According to Portuguese journalist Pedro Almeira, City has initiated talks over Grimaldo's availability.

Since joining Benfica in 2016, the 25-year-old, who came via the Barcelona academy system, has made 169 appearances in all competitions.

The Portuguese giants are reportedly wanting around €30 million (£25.6 million) for a player with two years left on his contract.
