Manchester City 'Discussing' Transfer Budget For the Summer Window - Key Targets Revealed

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Manchester City are 'discussing' how to use their transfer budget next season, with moves for a striker, midfielder, and left-back on the agenda.

With Manchester City’s failure to replace legendary striker Sergio Agüero with Tottenham’s Harry Kane last summer, there continues to be a void up-front at the Etihad Stadium.

Several names have been speculated to potentially solve City’s striking issues next season, with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix, and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala linked with moves to the Sky Blues.

While there is no denying that the Premier League champions will utilize the summer market to bring in a number nine, it has been revealed that their budget is not exclusively geared towards signing an out-and-out goalscorer.

As a result, names such as West Ham United’s Declan Rice, AS Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, Sporting CP’s Matheus Nunes, and Bologna’s Mattias Svanberg have been linked with moves to the blue side of Manchester.

Additionally, Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail has recently reported that - due to a major portion of City’s transfer budget set to be used towards funding Haaland’s arrival, - they could target a ‘less expensive’ option in that area.

Because of that, players such as Crystal Palace’s Tyrick Mitchell, Bologna’s Aaron Hickey, and Athletico Paranaense’s Abner Vinicius have also been speculated with switches to Pep Guardiola’s side.

While it would come as no surprise that a big-name striker such as Haaland is the top priority for City next summer, bolstering their squad in midfield and left-back still seems high on the agenda for the Blues.
