Kyle Walker could be a Manchester City player by the end of June, according to The Star.

The paper’s chief sports writer Jeremy Cross reveals City are confident of sealing a deal for the Tottenham defender after England’s fixtures against Scotland and France this month.

Walker has been heavily linked with a move to the Etihad for over a month now following a disagreement with Mauricio Pochettino about his fitness and ability to play more than one match a week.

Towards the end of the season, Kieran Trippier emerged as Pochettino’s first-choice right-back, selected in Spurs’ bigger games against the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal.

Although Tottenham aren’t keen on losing any first-team players this summer, the club is thought to be open to the possibility of Walker leaving if they can command a big enough fee. The rumoured figure is £40 million.

While it would be a shame to see Walker leave, Spurs are fortunate to have an able deputy in Trippier and are expected to sign further competition at right-back.

  1. This story has been rumbling on since Walkers spat with Poch and if Walker was going to City i am sufe he would have stayed at home not play in a friendly. This would be the start of our best team breaking up City finished behind Spurs twice why would we helped them finish ahead ?

  2. We have adequate back ups and Walkers money will be used to strenghten the side.Walkers crossing has never been particularly good Davis and Trippier are better at crossingv the ball for Kane and Deli lets get another attacking forward or midfield player

  3. I think he is making a huge mistake going anywhere. Kyle is prone to the odd mistake defensively and besides having pace his crossing isn’t always that good. Poch got him working at his best but other managers won’t be quite so tolerant and he could be benched, look at Joe Heart and other players previuosly under poch’s managment who haven’t done as well at other clubs. Could even cost him his England place and regular playing time. Still he’ll be earniing a fortune i suppose.

  4. They must balance to book with the stadium bill is high. If they can bring (this time) 2 – 3 good quality players and turn them into world class (like Ali) under Poch’s system it might be fine. Sometime good things came from bad….
