Former Manchester City player Trevor Sinclair questioned it Whether the club will pay such a sum to the player.
“If you look at the principles that Man City have tried to uphold and their philosophy, I can’t see them spending £100m on a player,” Sinclair told talkSPORT Breakfast.
“They don’t want to spend that kind of money. They have already had to invest a lot since Sheikh Mansour took over the football club.
“They were far from everyone on the field and didn’t have to invest in their training facilities because Carrington wasn’t ready for that.
They never broke [transfer] records. They didn’t come close to breaking Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.
“All the other clubs are buying players for £80m or £90m, Man City is not even close to that. I don’t think it’s by chance, I think it’s by design.”
