Manchester City have signed Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez this summer, with more signings promised. – Sport Media News

Almost a month after Manchester City won the Premier League title, their transfer business looks to be heating up as they try to add to two impressive signings already.

Erling Haaland is the headline transfer, arriving for a £51m fee, courtesy of his Borussia Dortmund release clause, that already appears to be very good value for money. Julian Alvarez was a low-key signing in January, for just £14m, and he has given City plenty to be excited about with his form for River Plate while back on loan.

Both Haaland and Alvarez will join up with City in pre-season, while chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak promised more signings to follow. A defensive midfielder and left-back appear to be the priority areas, with some departures possibly offsetting the money spent. In fact, City could even go as far as ending the summer with a net spend of close to zero if they can negotiate well.

As it stands, City have spent £65m on Haaland and Alvarez, and could spend as much as £100m, if reports are to be believed, on Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips and Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella.

Whether it is Phillips and Cucurella or other players, finding quality replacements in two key areas won’t come cheap, so if City did spend £160m on incomings it would feel believable.

City have already earned £8m from the permanent sale of Pedro Porro to Sporting, and could get up to £15m more following the sale of Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu to Southampton.

Gabriel Jesus is said to be valued at around £50m as Arsenal continue to be linked with the City No.9. It would be a shame to lose one of City’s most hard-working and underrated players, but his game time will be further limited by the arrival of the two new strikers, so it could be a good time to part ways if he can bring in a similar fee to the one spent to sign Haaland.

If Jesus goes, City would then have to find around £90m more to generate that £160m of incomings – or more simply, City would be around that zero net spend ahead of any further additions after Haaland and Alvarez.

Say those new signings cost as much as £100m, City may look to Raheem Sterling or Bernardo Silva. Both forwards continue to be linked with exits, and would command large transfer fees to help get to that total. Like Jesus, they may find game time reduced next season, and have spoken of their own personal desires to either experience new leagues or in Bernardo’s case, of homesickness.

Other player sales from the academy or City Football Group – like Ko Itakura or Yangel Herrera – could also help boost that transfer budget, so if City want to, they could potentially end the summer earning as much as they have spent. Even if they don’t, they know they are one sale of a senior player away from paying for Haaland, and have the capability of doing the same with any further incomings.

One of Marc Cucurella’s representatives flew to England last week to discuss a move for his client to Manchester City, according to recent reports.

After securing the £51 million signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund on Monday, the Premier League champions have swiftly move on to other key targets. In an attempt to bolster their already star-studded squad, City have been linked with moves for Cucurella and Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips.

According to The Argus, Cucurella’s representative flew to Manchester to discuss a possible move for his client with City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain.

Despite Joao Cancelo making the left-back spot his own last season, Oleksandr Zinchenko is considering moving on in search of regular game time. If the Ukrainian were to leave, it would allow the 23-year-old to come in and begin his development under Pep Guardiola.

Elsewhere, Bernardo Silva is ‘attracted’ by the possibility of signing for Barcelona this summer, according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo (via Sport Witness).

Last season, Guardiola confirmed the Portugal international was one of a number of City stars unhappy at the club, but no acceptable offer was made and the midfielder went on to have another world-class campaign. A driving force behind the Blues’ Premier League title charge, Silva was voted in the PFA Team of the Season and won the Etihad Player of the Month a record three consecutive times.

The report states Silva has already held discussions with the City hierarchy about his future and told them that he would be open to offers from some of Europe’s elite. The Premier League champions are demanding a figure of €80million (£68.4m) plus another €20m (£17.1m) in add-ons.

With the double arrival of strikers Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is looking to trim his forward line.

Gabriel Jesus looks set to be the first player to leave the Premier League champions this summer, with Arsenal in talks with City over a £50m move for the versatile Brazil attacker.

Jesus regained his place in the Brazil squad last month, but knows he needs to be playing regularly to keep it, which is unlikely to happen at City with the two high-profile arrivals up front.

Arsenal are holding talks with Man City over a £50million deal for Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus.

The double arrival of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez has pushed Jesus further down the forwards pecking order at City and he needs regular football to keep his Brazil place for the World Cup.

FODEN RELISHING HAALAND LINK-UP

Phil Foden is relishing the prospect of linking up with goal machine Erling Haaland at Man City.

City boss Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of the Spaniard and wants a first-choice left-back, with Oleksandr Zinchenko potentially on his way out of the Etihad this summer.

Gavin Bazunu has joined Southampton on a permanent deal, handing Manchester City a welcome boost in the transfer market.

Bazunu, 20, joined City in 2019 from Shamrock Rovers for a six-figure sum, and has impressed in two season-long loans in League One in the last two years. After making 32 appearances for Rochdale under City’s current academy head coach Brian Barry-Murphy, Bazunu really kicked on at Portsmouth last season where he played 46 times.

Now, the Republic of Ireland international has made the south coast switch from Fratton Park to St Mary’s as he moves to Southampton in a deal that could reportedly rise to £15m.

The sale gives City a boost to their transfer budget as they look for more signings in the summer window after Erling Haaland. Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips and Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella have been linked in recent days as Pep Guardiola looks to strengthen his squad further ahead of the new season.

Bazunu has previously spoken about becoming City’s first-choice goalkeeper in future, but had stated that he didn’t intend to sit on the bench next season either at the Etihad or elsewhere. Now he makes the switch to City’s Premier League rivals, he will be looking for regular game time under Ralph Hasenhuttl.

City reportedly have a buy-back option on Bazunu, as they have with other player sales in recent years, as well as a sell-on clause should be move on from Southampton.

Also departing City this week is fellow goalkeeper James Trafford, who has re-joined Bolton in League One on a season-long loan following a successful six months at the University of Bolton Stadium last season.

City re-signed Scott Carson on a one-year contract on Tuesday, with Zack Steffen and Ederson completing their goalkeeper department for next season.

Manchester City coach Juanma Lillo has departed the club after taking up a managerial role.

Lillo has been an assistant to Pep Guardiola since joining the club in June 2020 and has played a key role behind the scenes in City’s success in that time, with two Premier League triumphs and a Carabao Cup victory. The Spaniard has left the Etihad to take up a head coach role at Qatari side Al-Sadd Sports Club.

“My time at Manchester City has been one of the most enjoyable periods of my career,” Lillo said upon his exit. “To work alongside Pep, his backroom staff and this group of players has been a pleasure and I hope to have contributed in a small way to the fantastic success we have enjoyed on the pitch.

“I wish the club the very best and hope they can achieve all of their ambitions moving forwards.”

Txiki Begiristain added: “Juanma has been an integral part of a team that has won back-to-back Premier League titles. His dedication, passion and desire to improve our squad have been evident from our results on the pitch throughout his time at the club.

“It has been a pleasure working with Juanma over the last two seasons and everybody at Manchester City wishes him well in his new venture.”
