Manchester City closing in on Kyle Walker capture

Manchester City are increasingly confident of complete a deal to sign Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker.

The Daily Star are reporting that Pep Guardiola is confident that a deal can be struck before the end of the month – after England’s upcoming fixtures against Scotland and France.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager is desperate to add high quality full back to his squad after not renewing the contracts of Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy for next season.

He is believed to be closing in on a deal to sign Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy and is now getting closer to filling the vacant right-back slot too.

Walker fell out of favour with Mauricio Pochettino towards the end of the season after the defender apparently asked for an improved deal at White Hart Lane.

The 26-year-old currently earns £70,000-a-week after signing a new deal this summer, and is looking to double his money, something that Spurs are not willing to do for him. However he will find encounter no financial worries at Manchester City, who are willing to match his wage demands. 

He is also thought to been keen on a move back north to be closer to his Sheffield based family.
