Wild-haired Cucu was tracked by the Etihad boss before the 23-year-old left Barcelona for Getafe in 2020.

Last summer he became a £15.4m Seagull and was just named the club’s double player of the season.

Guardiola wants more competition in the role and City are ready to double Brighton’s money this summer.

Cucurella recently helped the Seagulls beat Manchester United 4-0.
