Manchester City targeting in a shock move for Championship defender.

Manchester City are reportedly targeting a shock move for newly relegated Fulham left-back Antonee Robinson during the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old was one of a few bright lights for Scott Parker’s side during a comparatively ineffective campaign back in the top-flight – a campaign that has seen the London outfit head back down to the Championship progressing to the next season.

With Pep Guardiola and Manchester City obviously in desperate need of putting attention and focus on the left-back berth at the Etihad Stadium, the USA international may just have emerged as a perfect market opportunity for club officials to take advantage of.

According to the report of Alan Nixon at the Sun, Manchester City are commencing up a shock move for Antonee Robinson during the upcoming summer transfer window, with the Fulham man recognized as a ‘cover player’ for his team.


Nixon denotes that the player’s versatility, as demonstrated during his time at Fulham thus far, where he has shown his ability to play as a wing-back.

In terms of the potential financials of a deal, it is reported that Manchester City would have to pay out around £10 million to sign Antonee Robinson.

But unsurprisingly given the numbers that are at the Etihad club’s disposal, that is within their budget plans.

While Manchester City are understood to have been in the market for a new left-back for several months now, no real stand-out targets have shown any signs of edging closer towards an Etihad move.

In recent weeks, Sporting’s €70 million-valued left-back Nuno Mendes has been massively linked with attention from Manchester City within Portuguese press – however, City themselves notified the media to strongly deny any interest in the player.

Since then, other alternatives have been very short, with Robinson becoming the first name to be linked from within the English press pack.
