Again 7KK7 the door was open for them as well as Chelsea this past Summer...why didn't they do it then, and why did the player not push for it....there was no doubt that City were going to be the team to beat even before the season started.
City despite now needing a CB with Kompany again showing unreliability with fitness and Stones being injured, they only really have Otamendi as regular. Their main priorities in the summer was the FB areas and the keeper. Probably with the intentions of hoping Kompany was over his injury problems.
Chelsea were never really linked with him, not massively. They were a mess in the summer window, none of their transfers really made any sense.
Player didn't push for it because he probably thought he was joining us, he made it public he wanted to leave and was talking with Klopp. At the time, we were the only team really in need of a CB.
Just because they didn't push for this player in the summer doesn't mean they won't now, priorities and targets change as the season goes on.
