Manchester City are interested in signing 19-year-old Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia at the end of the season.

Romeo Lavia joined Southampton from Manchester City at the start of the season for a fee of around €12.5 million, and he has been a key player for the Saints. His performances have attracted a number of big clubs, and he could be a man in demand this summer. A report from Fichajes claims that Manchester City could offer €30 million to bring the player back to the club.

The Premier League champions have a buyback clause inserted in the midfielder’s contract which will allow them to sign him for a fee of €40 million in 2024. It seems that Pep Guardiola is unwilling to wait for another year and is looking to sign the midfielder this summer.

Lavia has been a promising performer for Southampton, and he could prove to be a useful acquisition for Manchester City. The Premier League giants will need to add more depth and quality to their midfield this summer, especially if players like Ilkay Gundogan decide to leave the club.

The German international will be a free agent, and he has decided not to sign an extension with Manchester City. And a summer exit seems likely amid interest from Barcelona. Lavia could be a quality long-term acquisition, and he has the quality to succeed at a top club like Manchester City as well.

The 19-year-old has proven his quality at Southampton, and he has excelled with the Saints despite their struggles this season. Southampton are currently at the bottom of the league table and are expected to go down to the championship in the summer.

They are likely to lose a number of key players, and the 19-year-old midfielder certainly deserves to play in the top flight. It would make sense for him to join a Premier League club in the summer and Manchester City are certainly one of the biggest clubs in the world right now. He has been linked with Chelsea as well.
