Manchester City have told Chivas that they will have to pay $10 million for the permanent transfer of forward Uriel Antuna, according to a report by Record in Mexico as relayed by Sport Witness.

It is claimed Chivas first approached Antuna’s current club LA Galaxy, to find out whether the MLS side had any intention of making their loan move permanent come the end of the deal – it has since transpired that they would not be looking to do so.

As a result, Uriel Antuna’s permanent employers City Football Group were then contacted by Chivas, with City responding by saying it would take a fee of $10 million to sign the 22-year-old on a permanent deal. The report goes on to say Chivas ‘have work to do’ in order to pull off the transfer, and would also have to prove the move would be suitable for his career.

A previous update during the summer transfer window had claimed that LA Galaxy were in fact interested in making a deal permanent for the Mexico forward, and in fact at the time Manchester City were not interested in selling but would be more interested in loaning him out.
