Manchester City: Sky Sports share transfer news out of Eastlands -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

As per Sky Sports Germany, some very interesting transfer news has now come out of Manchester City as the club lay out their summer transfer plans for manager Pep Guardiola.

The Lowdown: Sky Blues eyeing summer moves…

The Sky Blues are reliably reported to be eyeing a striker this summer transfer window with Guardiola himself confirming his belief that City will try to sign one.

Txiki Begiristain, sporting director of the Premier League champions, reportedly has Borussia Dortmund star Erling Braut Haaland among his list of priority targets.

Meetings have apparently been held with the Norwegian’s super agent, Mino Raiola, but City face major competition for the elite forward as Real Madrid are also contenders for his signature.

Now, as Sky share news, it appears Guardiola, Begiristain and the club are eyeing an alternative whom Citizens will be very familiar with.

The Latest: Sky lift lid on City transfer plan…

According to their information, Man City will now ‘start a new attempt’ to sign Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.

The England international, who was at the centre of four Sky Blue approaches to sign him last summer, is apparently ‘anything but averse’.

Sky reporter Marc Behrenbeck goes on to say that Kane ‘wants to try again to go to Manchester City’ as he pursues a move to Eastlands.

The Verdict: Big claim…

Chairman Daniel Levy and Spurs proved difficult to deal with last year as City ultimately faltered in their attempts to back Guardiola with a world class striker.

Multi-million pound bids were sent Tottenham’s way but to no avail as the English frontrunners, again, improvise without a recognised centre-forward.

Guardiola’s men have thrived with the use of a false-nine system which seemingly gets the very best out of their inter-changing attacking midfielders across City’s forward line.

It remains to be seen where Kane would fit in, depending on whether Begiristain can prise him away from north London, but he has been revered for his link-up play as well as his proficiency in front of goal.

Journalist Matt Law even called the 28-year-old ‘underrated‘ while Guardiola himself has never held back in his praise of the 67-cap England star.

City’s boss has labelled Kane ‘incredible‘ but we believe a swoop for Haaland should be prioritised regardless.

The Bundesliga ace’s €75 million (£63m) release clause, which comes into effect in June, is a major incentive to move and his younger age also sees Haaland come as more value for money.

Dortmund’s sensation, scoring 16 goals in just 13 league starts, certainly stands out above all other options.
