Manchester City: Pep Guardiola makes transfer demand in new position

Manchester City: Pep Guardiola makes transfer demand in new position -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

As per Claret & Hugh, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has now made a top transfer demand in a different position amid all the noise surrounding striker Erling Braut Haaland.

The Lowdown: Haaland dominates discussion…

Since Daily Mail reporters Jack Gaughan and Craig Hope broke news of City allegedly having a deal in place for one the world’s most exciting forwards, Haaland to Eastlands has dominated the headlines.

Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain are well in contention to sign the Norway superstar with journalist Rafa Almansa even claiming that, after speaking with a source close to Haaland’s father and ex-Blue Alf-Inge, that the 21-year-old is nailed on for Eastlands (El Chiringuito).

Amid all of this noise, however, it appears City’s head coach has made a top transfer demand in another position as he eyes a new left-back option this summer.

The Latest: Etihad insiders make Guardiola claim…

As per C&H, hearing from their ‘insiders at the Etihad’, Guardiola ‘wants another top left-back’ with City scouts/officials now ‘on the lookout’.

They also claim the Spaniard’s transfer demand could throw question marks around Oleksandr Zinchenko’s future given City’s versatile ace still hasn’t been offered a new deal.

 The Verdict: Needed?

Joao Cancelo is quite clearly City’s first choice makeshift left-back and a real contender for one of the best full-backs in world football.

The Portugal international’s creativity on that side has been crucial for Guardiola and the Sky Blues over these last two seasons, but if the 27-year-old were to be sidelined, it could seriously put a dent in City’s system.

That being said, Zinchenko has proved time and time again just how capable he is slotting in at left-back when needed – perhaps most notably through some stellar performances in the run up to City’s first ever Champions League final last year.

The presence of Nathan Ake also, who is capable of playing in that role, arguably nullifies the need to spend too much time in the transfer market hunting for an accomplished left-back.

While Guardiola is allegedly determined to sign a player for that role, we believe all of City’s efforts should be put towards sealing the deal for Haaland.
