Pep Guardiola has been asked about the arrival of a renowned striker at City this summer.
Antoine Griezman? Erling Haaland? Harry Kane? Pep Guardiola calms the game and dampens the enthusiasm of City supporters. The Spanish manager of the Eastlands club says there is “more chance” that his club will not sign a striker this summer than to see him spend a lot on a famous number 9. And this, even if the reigning English champion must invest in a new number nine during this transfer market, in order to compensate for the departure of Sergio Aguero, at the end of the contract last June and who signed for Barça.
” An attacker ? It’s impossible “
“At the price where it costs, we are not going to buy a striker, it is impossible, we cannot afford it. It’s impossible. All clubs are in financial difficulty, we are no exception. We have Gabriel [Jesus], Ferran [Torres] which has been amazing in this position, we have young players in the academy, we play a few times with a false nine. I don’t know what’s going to happen. Maybe we’ll buy but maybe we won’t buy a striker for next season. Today, there are more chances that we will not buy a striker for the next season ”, thundered Guardiola at the microphone of Tv3.
