Manchester City is preparing to make some big signings in the summer transfer window as it continues its quest for a triple treble.
“City boss Pep Guardiola and executive vice-chairman Tiki Begiristain have worked together to draw up a zero list for the summer transfer window,” the British publication The Mirror reported on July 23, citing exclusive sources.
While City’s squad is steady, the summer 먹튀검증 transfer window is in flux with Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan, with Gundogan in particular torn between staying and leaving.
‘Man City will compete with Liverpool for the signature of Alexis Sanchez (Brighton & Hove Albion),’ the source said. Liverpool and Brighton are understood to have agreed a deal, but things could be different for City,’ adding that a fierce battle is expected to ensue.
McAllister is also reportedly on a list drawn up by Guardiola and Wehrleistein. ‘In addition to McAllister, the list includes Julio Enciso (Brighton & Hove Albion), Josko Gvardiol (Leipzig) and Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich),’ the source added.
Above all, Guardiola is said to be looking to stabilize his squad with early signings when the summer transfer window opens in July. Late signings could be detrimental to strengthening the organization.
However, it is unlikely that Brighton will give up McAllister so easily. McAllister’s price tag has risen to £70 million ($114 million). In addition to Liverpool, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Chelsea are also keen on McAllister, so it’s not surprising that the transfer fee is so high.
The €20 million ($28.4 billion) prize money for winning the UEFA Champions League (UCL) is also important. Even if it’s not McAllister, it’s enough to pay for at least one player of similar caliber.
