At Benfica, Grimaldo gradually established himself as one of the best key players in the squad. The fullback has so far won 3 Primeira Liga titles, 1 Taca de Portugal, 1 Taca da Liga and 3 Supertaca Candido de Oliveira titles.

Now, according to a recent report by Tribal Football, the giants of the English Premier League, Manchester City are keen to bolster their defense with the arrival of Alejandro Grimaldo from Benfica.

With Pep Guardiola, Manchester City have assembled one of the strongest teams in Europe. They have ample depth at all positions. But that does not prevent them from adding more quality to their squad.

Alejandro Grimaldo, 27, is currently at the top of his game. The left back has been a constant player for Benfica over the years. He has also had a good start to the season. The left back managed three goals and four assists in all competitions.

Grimaldo’s contract with Benfica will expire at the end of the season. Although Benfica wants to give him an extension, it has been understood that the winger does not want to continue. So if a decent offer comes in the January transfer window, Benfica will sell him.


Now, in addition to City, Arsenal are also interested in the side. The Gunners actually had a chance to sign Grimaldo in the last window, but decided to tie up Zinechenko. And now interesting Aretat’s are back in the race for the side.

Another English Premier League team, Newcastle United, are planning a January move for Grimaldo. Since the recent acquisition, they have signed quite a few great players. Now they want to tie up Grimaldo to reinforce his defense. So if Manchester City want to sign the midfielder, they will have to fast.

English Premier League defending giant Manchester City have had a great start to the season. Pep Guardiola’s team have won ten of their first thirteen games. With thirty-two points, they are currently in first position.

Manchester City will face Chelsea in their next game.
