The club is interested in signing the £60 million star because Pep Guardiola wants to bring out the best in his players, including the ability to offer defensive and offensive duties at the highest level.
Pep Guardiola is set to give Manchester City’s star his first start against Southampton.
Following the news of Joao Cancelo’s impending move to Bayern Munich, Manchester City may make a £60 million bid for Chelsea star Ben Chilwell.
Guardiola’s team is vulnerable on both flanks, with Benjamin Mendy’s contract expiring this summer and Cancelo’s departure leaving them short on defense.

The Spanish manager has a proven track record of getting the most out of his players, and Chilwell is at the top of his list as a possible replacement.
The Blues’ defender has been plagued by injuries since joining from Leicester City, but he remains an important member of the squad.
While Chelsea looks to rebuild their team, such an offer could tempt them – though how they respond remains to be seen.
Manchester City is still vying for Arsenal’s league position, while Chelsea will be lucky to finish in the top four this season under Graham Potter.
