Manchester City look close to announcing a major double transfer deal.
Fabian Delph and Fabinho could soon be on their way to Manchester City after recent reports suggested deals for the duo were almost complete.
Delph has a £8million release clause, and with City desperate to boost their homegrown quota, he would be a decent addition to the squad. Monaco right back Fabinho is the other player, he is naturally a right back but can play in defensive midfield and is highly rated across Europe.
The reaction from City fans is mostly good, particularly on the Fabinho front. There are a few doubts on Delph’s ability to play at the highest level – with many questioning whether he can help City with their Champions League woes.
Here’s how the Manchester City fans are reacting to the latest links on social media:
Delph to Man City, if it happens, is £8m more than Villa would have got if he hadn’t signed a new deal. Will still hurt for them though.

Sterling £50m De Bruyne £35m Delph £8m Fabinho £15m This would be an ideal summer. We shall see.

The Delph links keep getting reported by the Telegraph. First it was Rose then Cresswell and now Delph. Would be a very mediocre signing!

City taking my advice and going after Fabinho. He’s top class.

Fabinho seems like a signing that makes a lot of sense great back up for Zaba & versatile as well can play defensive midfield role to #MCFC

Fabinho will be good for us. Great work rate

And he’s young and versatile, Fabinho could be a great signing but ngl never seen him play.
