Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola revealed that he is still unsure whether the club will be able to sign a striker this season. City have been heavily linked with Harry Kane this summer and Spurs have insisted that their captain is not for sale. Reports suggest that Spurs will sell if their valuation is met. Manchester City have just one striker in the squad in the form of Gabriel Jesus after Sergio Aguero saw out his contract last season. There is just one week left for the close of the transfer window.
“When we decide to not sign a contract for Aguero and people say what we’re going to do, I said many times: it’ll depend on the market, the options,” Manchester city manager Pep Guardiola said. “Maybe we buy or maybe we’ll not. We still have 10 days in the transfer market, we’re going to see what happens, and it depends on what decision we are going to take. If the team is the same one, I said before the 5-0, I’m more than pleased with the team. I know them really well, they know me really well.”
“We put in incredible energy this week to realize that still, we want to be there, to try to compete with the good teams in England and good teams in Europe,” he added. “We want to be there. The group of people are fantastic, the players have incredible quality, so I cannot complain. I’ve never complained since I arrived day one, I will not do it now, but of course the club has an obligation, the duty to look forward, to get better, to feel we can still be there with a tough Premier League and this is what we are going to do.”
