Javi Garcia Manchester City coach has urged the club’s upper management to block the deal for Lyon captain as he has set his sights on Manchester City midfielder .

Although a deal to bring Gonalons to the Stadio San Paolo has been arranged, the availability of the Spanish defensive midfielder has interested the Partenopei tactician.

According to TuttoSport, Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas had accepted a €12 million bid for the Frenchman, with the player himself agreeing to a €2m contract spanning five years.

However, Benitez was reportedly informed that Manchester City would be willing to allow Javi Garcia to leave the club for around €20m and is now intent on bringing his compatriot to Italy.

Napoli currently sit in third spot in the table having collected 28 points from 13 matches.
