Brighton fullback Cucurella won't push for Man City move


Brighton fullback Marc Cucurella insists he's happy on the south coast.

Cucurella has been speculatively linked with interest from Manchester City.

But, asked whether there had been a call from City boss Pep Guardiola, he replied: “No, no, honestly, no."

Cucurella told Gerard Romero, a popular presenter and media personality in Catalonia: “I went to this team (Albion) to progress.

Further pressed on possible City interest, he added: “If an opportunity comes you have to take it. There are things or teams to which you can't say no."

But, in what appeared to be quite a light-hearted exchange, he recognised it was early to be talking about a move to the champions.

Cucurella said he had heard “rumours" of interest but was concentrating on enjoying a summer break.

He said: “We are relaxed here and the important thing is to rest."
