Manchester City have reportedly joined five other European clubs in showing an interest in UD Almeira striker Umar Sadiq, and have already outlined their plan should they secure the player.
The 24 year-old centre-forward has been impressing in the second division of Spanish football since his arrival last year, and his form in front of goal has already caught the attention of clubs at a higher level of European football.
One of those clubs is reportedly Manchester City, who are known to be in the market for a new striker following the departure of Sergio Aguero to FC Barcelona earlier this year.

However, their plans according to the latest report do not align themselves with bringing in Umar Sadiq to replace the legendary Argentine immediately.
According to the information in Spanish newspaper AS, Manchester City have ‘set their sights’ on UD Almería’s Umar Sadiq, with his currently employers demanding a fee of €30 million.
The report explains how this is largely due to the player having a substantial release clause of €60 million embedded into his active contract, which runs until the summer of 2025.
Despite the substantial spend that the 24 year-old striker could command this summer, it is reported that Manchester City’s plan is to sign the player immediately, before sending him on loan to City Football Group club Troyes in France, before having Sadiq back in their Premier League squad for the 2022/2023 campaign.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
