Centre-back exit sanctioned as Manchester City close in on agreement for Manchester United defender



| Last Updated:


Manchester City are close to finalising the next loan move for highly-rated centre-back talent Callum Doyle, according to reports on Tuesday.

The Premier League champions will see the England youth international leave on his third successive loan spell in the Football League, following on from temporary but hugely successful moves to Sunderland and Coventry City.

Deals involving teenage centre-back targets were the order of the day, as reports elsewhere revealed a pending transfer between Manchester City and Manchester United, in favour of the Etihad Stadium club.

Here is everything you need to know after day 28 of the summer transfer window, and the 25th edition of our comprehensive transfer round-up!

Manchester City officials laughed off suggestions they could be willing to part with Julian Alvarez this summer. City are delighted with his impact and are not entertaining losing him, either permanently or temporarily. The World Cup winner is also happy at the club. There remains a mutual desire to continue working together. (Tom Gott, Graeme Bailey – 90Min)

Manchester City hope to spark a bidding war for Taylor Harwood-Bellis this summer, with Burnley also interested alongside West Ham and Fulham. The England under-21 star is unlikely to have a prominent role under Pep Guardiola next season. (Nizaar Kinsella, Evening Standard)

Manchester City will likely insert a buy-back clause if they are to sell Carlos Borges this summer, with the club open to both a loan deal or permanent move. Borges is highly regarded at City but there is a consensus he will struggle to break into the first team given the quality in the side. Borges is aware of the difficulty of regular City game time, attracting interest from Premier League and Championship clubs. (Pete O’Rourke, Football Insider)

Carlos Borges is not a player Celtic are currently considering, with no proposal made to Manchester City or any approach for the 19-year-old. (Mark Hendry, Football Scotland)
