City priced out of striker move

Manchester City cannot afford to buy a top striker this summer.

That is the claim of manager Pep Guardiola who has revealed that there will be no moves in the current window for the likes of either Harry Kane or Erling Haaland, because of the club’s financial position and that City are no more immune form the effects of the pandemic on their spending power as anybody else.

City have been targeting a new forward to replace the departed Sergio Agüero, but now it looks like they will have to make do with what they currently have for the season ahead.

Instead, they are likely to rely on Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres, and there are also young players in their academy who are ready to make the step-up.

City spent much of last season playing with a false nine and without a recognised striker in the team,. so that formation will likely also be used in some games.
