Barcelona's Reiziger set to join Man City

MANCHESTER: Michael Reiziger will be flying in to Manchester in the next 48 hours to sign for City, the Manchester Evening News reported on Wednesday.  

Talks with Barcelona are at an advanced stage for the 29-year-old Dutch international who said on Wednesday that he could not wait to bolster Kevin Keegan’s side.  

“I heard from Barcelona about a possible move on Monday and I am definitely interested as I have heard great things about Manchester City under Kevin Keegan. 

“They have shown a lot of ambition, made some good signings and may even have a chance of winning a spot in Europe.” 

If Keegan can agree a loan deal for Reiziger with a view to a £4million fee at the end of the season, he will still be able to move to land another defender in 28-year-old, £5 million David Sommeil from Bordeaux. – AFP
