Manchester City are making their opening offer for Brighton fullback Marc Cucurella.

The former Barcelona junior is open to a move to Pep Guardiola, but the deal will depend on Brighton’s valuation.

The south coast values ​​Cucurella at nearly £50million and that could be too high for City, who would be willing to consider alternatives.

Chelsea are also keeping an eye on developments with the 23-year-old on their wish list.

Cucurella joined Barcelona’s prestigious La Masia academy when Guardiola was in charge of the Catalan club.

He played two seasons with Getafe before moving to Brighton, where he won the Player of the Year award. Albion chief Tony Bloom is unlikely to budge on his asking price as he has already cashed in midfielder Yves Bissouma, who joined Tottenham this week.

City are weighing up former academy coach Enzo Maresca to fill the vacant position as Guardiola’s assistant.

Former No. 2 Juanma Lillo left last week to join Qatari club Al-Saad as manager. Maresca, once a West Brom player, led City’s Under 23 side before moving to Serie A side Parma.
