Manchester City have told Chivas that they will have to pay $10m if they wish to sign forward Uriel Antuna.

Antuna has spent the season on loan in the MLS with LA Galaxy and impressed, bagging six goals and six assists in 31 league games.

That form has attracted the interest of Chivas, according to Record, and they’ve already been in contact with Manchester City about a move.

The newspaper explains they first went to LA Galaxy to see if they would be trying to make Antuna’s loan permanent and were told that would not be the case.

As a result, they contacted the City Football Group to discover what his situation would be once his loan in America comes to an end. City’s response to this was that it would take $10m to sign Antuna.

Whether Chivas would be willing to pay that price isn’t mentioned, but Record explains they have work on their hands to convince the 22-year-old to make the move.

They need to prove to him the move would be suitable for his career, as at the moment he is still keen on staying in the MLS.

The player also wants to provide stability to his family as he is expecting his first child in January and sees America as the ideal place to start a family.

Manchester City have set their price, though, and are seemingly happy to sell too, suggesting that Antuna’s two-year spell at the club may end sooner rather than later.
