According to several media, an agreement has been reached with Marc Cucurella for him to become a Manchester City player in the coming days.

The La Masia-trained left-back is coming off a hell of a season at Brighton, and according to daily reports AS and the English press, an agreement has been reached with the 23-year-old Spaniard. All that remains is to agree with Brighton, which should not be a major difficulty since the two English teams are also close to agreeing around an amount of around 35 million euros.
