Manchester City are interested in highly rated Swansea City defender Joe Rondon and they are interested in taking the player to the Premier League next season. The citizens have been short in that department all season as Rodri and Fernandinho has been deployed as a makeshift center back this season, and the addition of the highly rated defender will be a huge boost going forward for the club.

The Citizens have fallen 22 points behind runaway champions Liverpool, and they will do all they can to notch them off come next season and preparation is already in top gear for the 2020/2021 season.

Rondon 22-year-old has been compared to John Stones and City scouts have recognized his potential, with the club expected to continue monitoring his progress during the remainder of the season.

However, he has also gained interest from other Premier League clubs including Bournemouth, Everton, ​Leicester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The Welsh international has recently returned to Steve Cooper’s starting XI, after suffering with an ankle injury he picked up in October.

The defender is known for his great composure on the ball and his recent performances have earned him a senior call up by Wales manager Ryan Giggs. He was named in a preliminary senior Wales squad in May 2018 for a friendly against Mexico but was left out of the final selection. He was called up for a competitive game for the first time for an August 2019 qualifier against Azerbaijan for his international debut in September. He is expected to feature in Wales’ upcoming friendlies against Austria and USA next month.

The Citizens have been banned recently by UEFA; the ban was as a result of breach of UEFA financial regulation. The club have claimed they are innocent, and they have done nothing wrong. They have vowed to appeal the ban with the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The ban will affect the way Manchester City will go about their transfer business this summer.
