Pep putting faith in Cucurella to solve position problem

Pep Guardiola is considering taking his spending on full-backs since his arrival at Manchester City in the summer of 2016 to beyond £225m.

He plans to sign Brighton defender Marc Cucurella.

Opening £30m bid has however been rejected.

Such has been the excellent running of the south coast club by Tony Bloom.

Brighton can afford to be relaxed about Pep Guardiola’s admiration for his countryman.

Cucurella was only signed in a £15m deal 12 months ago from Getafe, but the player is now worth at least three times that fee.

Cucurella has four years to run on his contract.

And while he would likely jump at the chance to work under Guardiola, Brighton are in a position of strength and are in no rush to sell.
