Man City: Pep dealt behind-scenes blow after major development

Man City: Pep dealt behind-scenes blow after major development -Manchester City News

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been dealt a behind-the-scenes blow after a major development on the transfer of Erling Haaland in the last 48 hours, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Exciting times…

After the Sky Blues suffered more Champions League heartache this time last week at the hands of Real Madrid, it’s safe to say the Premier League champions could not have responded in better fashion.

Testament to the elite mentality of this City squad, Guardiola’s men immediately took to the grass after their European exit and swept aside both Newcastle United and Wolves with ten goals in two games.

Their latest win at Molineux, coming courtesy of a sublime four-goal performance from man of the match Kevin De Bruyne, followed a major development out of Eastlands.

In the last 48 hours, City officially confirmed an agreement for the signing of Borussia Dortmund superstar Haaland as sporting director Txiki Begiristain puts an end to the club’s long striker search.

However, following this huge news, it appears Guardiola may actually have been dealt a behind-scenes issue.

The Latest: Guardiola dealt ‘dressing room’ blow…

According to Foot Mercato, as also translated by Sport Witness, the City boss may now have to deal with disgruntled sections of the squad after the development on Haaland.

It is believed that the Norwegian’s pending arrival has ‘shaken’ the ‘Man City dressing room’ with certain players feeling ‘less valued than the new recruit and aren’t hesitating to make it known’.

There are also concerns inside the club over the timing of this Haaland announcement given City are still well and truly in a battle to retain their top flight crown.

The Verdict: Pinch of salt…

Following their 5-1 hammering of Wolves last night, coming after the club confirmed Haaland’s capture, we advise to take this report with a pinch of salt.

Guardiola’s side were at their free-flowing best going forward and have set up a mouth-watering final two games of the 2021/2022 campaign away to West Ham and at home to Aston Villa.

One thing that we will say, after De Bruyne’s unplayable display on Wednesday evening, Haaland will be under immense pressure to justify reportedly being on the same wages as City’s hero.

In other news: Guardiola could now join race for £354,000-per-week superstar after Haaland, find out more here.
