Manchester City in the Transfer Tavern are starting to get anxious with the club yet to make a major signing in the transfer window.
The Citizens cruised to the Premier League title last season which has prompted their Premier League rivals to splash the cash. Both Liverpool and Manchester United have spent almost £100m to bolster their ranks and to challenge Pep Guardiola’s side next season. The Spaniard has targeted both Jorginho and Riyad Mahrez, but both moves have not progressed for weeks.
It’s hard to identify other areas of improvement given the abundance of talent available to the former Barcelona boss. Therefore, it would be a wise move to start planning for the future and target some of the world’s best wonderkids. Guardiola should turn his attention to the Serie A and Juventus.
With the Old Lady reportedly set to complete a stunning £88m deal for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, they could be forced to offload some of their stars to fund the move. City should make an audacious attempt to sign their most prized asset – Moise Kean. Valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, the forward became the first player born in the 2000s to make an appearance in Europe’s five major leagues as well as in the Champions League.
Kean spent last season on loan at Hellas Verona where he made 12 starts, scoring four goals. The 18-year-old remains one of Italy’s most promising prospects. The youngster has bags of pace and quick feet coupled with excellent dribbling ability; making him a defenders nightmare. He is also a fantastic finisher, scoring 29 goals in 36 appearances for Juventus’ U17s which saw him fast-tracked to the first-team.
Under Guardiola’s tutelage, Kean could develop into one of the best strikers in the world.
