In the previous season, Man City has won the Premier League. Also, they had reached the final of the Champions League but couldn’t convert it in to win.
After that, Man City’s coach Guardiola demanded some players. Also, Man City’s owner never compromises to buy any player according to coach instruction.
Who has Man City been linked with?
Jack Grealish: The Aston Villa midfielder is reportedly linked with Manchester City. The price tag is 100M for Grealish. Also, Grealish has played a key role for England to reach Euro 2020 final. But there is a problem for City that Aston Villa is determined to keep Grealish for another season. Also, a huge bid from Man City can change the mind of Aston villa management.
Harry Kane- Kane’s England teammates also believe that he could refuse to return to pre-season training with Tottenham. Also, he got a bid to try to force a move to City. The city has made a Guardiola told Catalan network TV3 in July. He told “At the prices we are not going to buy any strikers. It is impossible, we cannot afford it. All clubs are struggling financially, we are not an exception. We have Gabriel (Jesus) and Ferran (Torres) who have been incredible in this position.
“We have young players in the academy and we play many times with a false nine. There is more of a chance we aren’t going to buy a striker for next season.
“We’ll do whatever we can do in the transfer window and if we can’t, we’ll still have the squad that has won the league three times in four years and reached the Champions League final.”
Robert Lewandowski – Premier League champions City are monitoring the striker’s status at Bayern Munich. Man City can target him if the Harry Kane transfer will not execute in the future. In this season man City desperately wants a proper box striker. The only position where they lacked a little bit.
Antoine Griezmann – City has ruled out a swoop for Griezmann as they focus their attention on England pair Harry Kane and Jack Grealish.
