Manchester City is on the verge of signing Fabian Delph

Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini is searching around the transfer market for players that can reinforce the midfield department of his squad and Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph is a performer that has entered the radar of the Chilean manager.

Frank Lampard,Michah Richards and Scott Sinclair and James Milner have already seen their way out of the Etihad Stadium and now Manuel Pellegrini has the task of filling up the spots which have been left weakened as well as vulnerable.

The Premier League title is a piece of silverware that Pellegrini and Manchester City are aiming to win in the next season and reinforcing the squad is something that must be done in order to compete against the likes of: Chelsea and Manchester United.

Fabian Delph played a huge role for Aston Villa in the previous season as he became the captain of the Premier League club and was one of the main reasons on why his club managed to stay alive in the top tier England league and avoid getting relegated.

The 25 year old English midfielder has a contract with Aston Villa which extends until 2019 and Fabian Delph has a buyout clause of €8 million. Manchester City is preparing to pay the price in order to sign him and if everything goes according to plan, he might be signed by Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur is another one of the Premier League clubs which is interested in signing Fabian Delph but City has acted faster in their attempts of securing the services of Delph and they are believed to be in prime position of getting everything done within the next few days or weeks.

Tim Sherwood of Aston Villa does not want to let go Fabian Delph but the player wants to make a move to a club where he can compete in the Champions League and have a better chance of winning major pieces of silverware and Manchester City has appeared as a likely destination for Delph who has been performing at a very high level since the past season.
