Pep Guardiola has revealed that it is not certain whether Manchester City will sign a striker during this summer transfer window.
Earlier this summer, the Citizens allowed Sergio Aguero to leave on a free transfer – he has since made the move to Barcelona (fcbarcelona.com). However, they have not yet signed a new centre-forward, and although results like the 5-0 win over Norwich City suggest they have plenty of ability elsewhere, the preceding 1-0 defeats to Tottenham and Leicester City indicate that they need to bring one in.
Guardiola has been discussing City’s transfer dealings, and he admitted the club will sign a new striker only if the transfer window allows (via City Xtra), saying: ““When we decided not to extend the contract of Sergio Aguero and people asked what we would do, I said many times it would depend on the market.
“Maybe we will buy, maybe not. It is still the same situation. I will never complain. I have never complained since day one and I will not do it now.”
Will City sign a new striker?
This has not pleased some City supporters, who believe that a new forward should have been a priority. The comments were shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and they attracted plenty of attention from supporters.
These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the comments from Guardiola
“Pep Guardiola: “When we decided not to extend the contract of Sergio Aguero” – this statement hurts”
“You lie too much”
“Stop playing with my emotion lol”
“Of course he will say this. End of the day its up to the club to trash a deal for a ST. If the club don’t he will need to make use of what he has.”
“At least extend Aguero if you’re not going to sign a striker. You mugs”
