Manchester City joined the race for the goal of Liverpool and Newcastle, the goal of Mikel Merino.
Merino, a former Newcastle player, has become a regular player for both club and country since leaving the Premier League. Currently, Merino plays for Real Sociedad, and also played 11 matches with Spain.
Merino failed to impress in his first spell in the Premier League, but Manchester City have now joined the race to bring him back.
According to journalist Kike Marin, as indicated in the tweet below, Manchester City are interested in the midfielder, who has a release clause of 60 million euros.

Merino has been linked with Newcastle and Liverpool recently, according to Fichajes.
The 25-year-old suits Pep Guardiola’s playing style, so you can see why he is interested in the midfielder. He is a technically talented midfielder, and he can also break up the play.
A move to the Premier League with Newcastle may have been too early for the Spaniard, who was still a young man at the time. Now gaining experience in Spain for club and national team, it was time to head back to England.
Real Sociedad is unlikely to want to sell their midfielder, but due to his release clause, they may not have a say in the matter.
