Cucurella started out at Barcelona’s La Masia academy before graduating to their ‘B’ team. But the defender decided to leave for Getafe after finding it difficult to break through into the senior squad, making only one appearance for the Blaugrana.
He recently made his debut for the Spain national team after appearing in the 4-0 friendly win over Lithuania, having received a call-up from the Under-21 squad from Luis Enrique due to a Covid outbreak in the senior camp.
There are expected to be several outgoings this summer as City look to revamp their squad. Gabriel Jesus is understood be considering an exit along with Raheem Sterling, who is out of contract next summer. Meanwhile, centre-back Aymeric Laporte is a target for Juventus, according to reports in Italy.
