Hello and Welcome to the daily Manchester City Transfer corner.

#4 Man City approach Palmeiras to sign Ivan Angulo
According to reports, Manchester City has proposed an offer to sign the Colombian winger, Ivan Angulo in future from Palmeiras.
The 19-year-old joined Palmeiras on loan from Envigado, but City is keeping tabs on the U20 International. The Palmeiras director said that -
“A representative of Manchester City wanted to propose a future agreement.
“We didn’t even want to open a conversation. We are not interested in an Angulo partnership at this time.”
It wouldn't be the first time that Manchester City has proposed a partnership with the Columbian side after Gabriel Jesus signed in 2016.
#3 Man City lining up a loan move for Schalke's Sebastian Rudy
It's no mystery that Manchester City is seriously considering a replacement for Fernandinho whose growing age has raised concerns among the City faithful. The Brazillian's unprecedented importance has raised alarm bells within the club who are now preparing life after Fernandinho.
In recent times, several players got linked as a back up for the midfielder, but none of the deals seem to materialize, with Schalke's Sebastian Rudy the latest to appear on the scene. According to the Sun, Guardiola is an admirer of the German International and knows him well from his time in the Bundesliga.
Rudy has struggled this season at Schalke, and the club has offered him on loan if there is a fee involved. He would undoubtedly be an ideal back up for Fernandinho as the title race gets tighter every week.
