Manchester City Transfer Deals Show That They’re Desperate To Regain Title

Manchester City today confirmed the signing of former Valencia winger Ferran Torres (Source ManCity.com).

The twenty year old Spaniard will boost Pep Guardiola’s attacking options especially after Leroy Sane’s recent move back to Germany with Bayern Munich.

Young Torres is clearly eager to work with legendary Spanish boss Guardiola:

“Pep encourages a really open, aggressive style, which I love, and he is a manager with a proven track record of improving players. To have him overseeing my development is a dream.”

It also looks as though Dutch international centre-half Nathan Ake is on his way to the Eithad Stadium, with Sky Sports reporting that the AFC Bournemouth defender is currently in Manchester taking a medical ahead of a proposed £41m move.

Pep has always worried about his central defensive positions, especially when it comes to having strength in depth in that position and after the retirement of former club captain Vincent Kompany last summer.

Are is experienced in the Premier League, is a ball playing centre-back and adds another homegrown player into City’s pool. All things Pep Guardiola either needs or respects.

These quick transfers should act as a warning that Man City clearly want their league title back!

They lost to the better team this term but they still have their eyes on the Champions League trophy, which would be no bad consolation prize but for next season they’ll be coming back hard for Liverpool’s Premier League title.

I doubt City’s hierarchy will stop with these two additions either.

I’d guess that the coach and his recruitment staff will be on the lookout for a new right-back and possibly another striker too.

Neither Kyle Walker or Joao Cancelo enjoyed particularly standout seasons last year for City. Pep might decide to sell one of them and bring in another right sided full back to add stiffer competition for that spot.

Up top, Sergio Aguero isn’t getting any younger and question marks still surround Gabriel Jesus and whether or not the Brazilian can lead the line on a full time basis in all competitions.

Someone like Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez could be ideal.

The Argentine would offer something different to City’s attack and he could even play in a two with either Jesus or Aguero.

Manchester City have already signalled their intentions with these early moves in the summer transfer market, Liverpool can’t afford to rest on their laurels or they might be in for a big fright when Pep Guardiola’s men kick off their 2020-21 campaign.

  1. This is the reason pep will never be as good as klopp, they come second and instead of knuckling down and working hard like klopp did all pep can do is throw money at it, pathetic manager 🤣🤣

  2. I don’t know if that’s true.

    It’s not as if Klopp hasn’t spent money. Both are good at seeing problem areas and trying to fill them. Plus it will be interesting to see if Foden plays a greater role for City now Silva has left.

  3. “… throw money at it,”

    So ‘Van Dijk, Salah, Alisson, Mane all came through the LFC academy?

    Talk about being completely delusional – how is spending £75 million on a defender not throwing money at it?
