Cedric Soares a summer transfer target for Manchester City and Barcelona

Southampton are bracing themselves for another transfer fight – this time over Cedric Soares.

Portugal ­international defender Soares has moved onto the radar of several Champions League clubs after 18 months of impressive displays for the Saints, while also helping his country to a surprise triumph at Euro 2016.
After selling Morgan Schneiderlin, Nathaniel Clyne, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Victor Wanyama, Graziano Pelle, Jose Fonte, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren, Calum Chambers and more over the past three years, it appears the Southampton exodus may not be over.
Soares, 25, arrived at St Mary’s Stadium from Sporting Lisbon for less than £5million in 2015.
Now, the south coast club want £20m for him.
Manchester City and Champions League rivals Barcelona are keeping tabs on the situation.
Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger has said that in-demand centre-half and captain Virgil van Dijk will not be leaving, but may decide to cash in on Soares.
