According to The Sun, City are keen on signing a new playmaking midfielder for next season and could make an offer for Rudy. The report also claimed that City could be prepared to include teenager Rabbi Matondo as part of the deal. Schalke has been linked to Matondo, who is reportedly looking to leave due to the lack of first team chances.
It is even claimed that Schalke have made a bid for the Wales international recently, which was rejected by Man City. But, with City’s interest in Rudy, the club could consider selling Matondo as they try to include Rudy in a deal for the 18-year-old.
