Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola leading the way, seeks to strengthen its squad in search of glory this new season. It seems that City goes for the Premier, after culminating in the third place of the English table, and will not rule out the Champions. I have to buy tickets online.
The City of Guardiola
The Spaniard has a vast experience with great European clubs; came to Manchester City in February 2016 after three seasons in the Bundesliga, with Bayern Munich.
This season, the Etihad Stadium team finished third in the Premier League, ahead of runner-up Tottenham and champion Chelsea.
In the Champions League, reached the last 16, after falling 2-1 to Real Madrid de Zidane.
Now, he is taking advantage of this summer to strengthen his squad and be deserving of the glory of football this season.
Who has Guardiola called?
The new signings of the Spanish technician, until now confirmed are:
Tottenham’s great defender, Kyle Walker; without a doubt, the purchase of Walker has been a tremendous success and it is seen that Guardiola is more than clear in what he needs to win titles.
The signing of Walker cost 51M euros.
The defender of Monaco, Benjamin Mendy, will also be part of the squad of citizens, for nothing more and nothing less than 57.5 million more.
The other defender who has come to City to strengthen the defense of the club is the former defender of Real Madrid, the Brazilian Danilo, for 30M.
Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes, from Benfica, has also been booked for about 40M; in addition, Guardiola has searched for two midfielders, Bernardo Silva and Douglas Luiz, for 50M and 12M respectively.
In the case of Douglas Luiz, this one has been ceded to the Girona F.C.
So far, the ‘shopping cart of Pep’ has cost about 210 million euros.
Those who have left
Willy Caballero has gone to Chelsea and Jesus Navas to Seville, both at the end of their contracts.
To Enes Unal, Guardiola sold it to Villarreal by 14M; striker Kelechi Iheanacho moved to the Leicester squad for 28.5M and Nolito and Aaron Mooy have also left the City, 9M each, to Sevilla FC. and Huddersfield Town, respectively.
Others who have also left are Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Ruben Sobrino, Pablo Zabaleta, Olivier Ntcham, Aleksandar Kolarov and the Brazilian Fernando.
Has complained lately
Guardiola is being harshly criticized these last weeks of signing since he has said that the market is ‘unsustainable’, by the expensive of the transactions; however, many have fallen on him, as he is one of the DT who has spent the most money for the dates.
The signings of Guardiola have already passed 200M euros, and this figure could increase. Players who have left City also represent 100M more. Pep’s criticisms are due to his annoyance for the 222M that was paid for the signing of Neymar.
However, hey, it seems that getting the glory costs dear, Pep.
Manchester City will make their final adjustments and soon will be ready in the field of Etihad Stadium to enjoy the support of their fan who is already ready to buy tickets online.
