Giorgio Chiellini's agent has confirmed that his client is eager to join Manchester City.Giorgio Chiellini's agent has confirmed that his client is eager to join Sven Goran Eriksson's revolution at Manchester City.
The former England chief has wasted little time in stamping his mark on Eastlands and it is the highly-rated Italian defender thought to be at the top of his wish list.
The Italy Under 21 international is keen to quit the Turin giants for England and his pledging of a desire to join City will likely delight all those involved at the club.
It has been widely speculated in both Italy and England that Chiellini is the next major target of Eriksson's summer spending, and if such talk does indeed have credence, then the player would be keen on completing the move.
"I will soon meet Juventus to discuss Giorgio's future," Davide Lippi, Chiellini's agent, is quoted as saying on Football Italia.
"We all hope that he will soon join Manchester City.
"The problem is that in transfer negotiations there always is a club who sells and one that buys, so I cannot possibly know how this will end.
"Chiellini would be thrilled to play in the Premier League with City, but everything depends on Juventus, on the final price and on their will to let him leave or not."
