Earlier today, it was revealed by Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso that Dusan Vlahovic would not be renewing his contract with the Italian club.
Following that announcement, it was only a matter of time before the transfer rumours would return regarding the Serbian, and TuttoMercatoWeb bring one forward regarding Manchester City.
The Premier League club were among those reported to have bid for the Fiorentina star during the summer following their failures to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham, only to be met by a brick wall put up by the Serie A side.
Things are very different now, as it’s clear a sale will be needed sooner rather than later to capitalise on the player’s stock, which is why TuttoMercatoWeb believe the requests ‘could still exceed €50m’.
However, the stance of him not being for sale will have changed, and they know that Vlahovic ‘is followed with interest by several top-tier clubs’.
Manchester City are mentioned, because ‘Sterling is not being used continuously by Pep Guardiola’, and they ‘could return to the charge to overcome the failure of the Kane operation’.
This is only the beginning, and there will undoubtedly be more in the coming weeks and months, especially if the Premier League side do start knocking on the door of Vlahovic’s agents.
