Wayne Bridge set to join Manchester City for £12m

Chelsea and England left-back Wayne Bridge is set to join Manchester City in a deal worth somewhere in the region of £12million according to reports in the tabloids today.

The 28-year-old defender joined the Blues in 2003 from Southampton, but he has been unable to cement a place in the starting eleven, first due to the arrival of Asier del Horno and then Ashley Cole in 2006.

The proposed move north would give Bridge the chance to push for a place in the England starting XI as well as providing City with some quality and experience at the back. While £12million may seem like a high price to pay, it looks as if Mark Hughes has money to burn on players over the coming month.
