City back in for Spanish playmaker

Manchester City are set to redouble their efforts to bring Real Betis midfielder Benat Extebarria to the Ethiad stadium, according to The Daily Express.

City boss Roberto Mancini failed in an attempt to sign the Spaniard last season, and with doubts over the future of Samir Nasri, is keen to bring another attacking midfielder to the current Premier League champions.

The 26 year old playmaker, is angling for a move away from Real Betis this summer with his agent Jose Vicente Biurrun confirming that his client is not interested in signing a new contract.

He said: “We are not talking about a new contract with Betis. Benat’s future is, probably, far away from Seville”.

“We are not going to wait till his contract expires, but we will look for a club at the very top level where Benat can play regularly”.

Benat has netted four times in 26 appearances for Real Betis this season.
