As much as Manchester City have excelled without signing a central striker this season, there is no doubt that the majority of transfers around the Etihad Stadium in the upcoming windows will be linked to the team’s attack.
Not only did the club select a direct replacement for club icon Sergio Aguero, they also sold Ferran Torres to Barcelona.
Pep Guardiola already has top-level options in the final third, but with no off-pitch goalscorer at the attacking point, the club will almost certainly move to a different type of attacker at the end of the campaign.

Will Haaland or Kane be the best summer signing for City? Let us know in the comments below!
Kane still wants to go out
Harry Kane is reportedly still keen to leave Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs have appointed a senior managerial appointment in the form of Antonio Conte and many Spurs fans were hoping the Italian’s arrival would help keep Kane happy in north London.
but according to MailOnline There is still determination on Kane’s part to move forward and Tottenham will be under pressure to sell in the summer, when he has only two years left on his contract.
City tried and failed to sign the striker before this season. However, given that they have done so well without him, as well as Kane’s inconsistent level, City may not be keen on putting in much effort for the player in the future.
Guardiola wants a ‘decisive effort’ for Haaland
According to AS (h / t watch sports Manchester City is preparing to spoil Real Madrid’s hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.
In the report, it was noted that Haaland would be keen on a move to Los Blancos. However, City are said to be in a position to offer the striker more in terms of wages after Guardiola’s “insistence” on signing the Norway international.
It is reported that Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola does not have a strong relationship with Guardiola, and while he was on a bad relationship with Real Madrid previously, “harmony” was established again recently.
Real Madrid may be able to compete with City by making room in their wage budget and Gareth Bale, Isco and Marcelo appear all set to leave the club when their contracts expire in the summer.
Representatives of the city of Vinicius contact
According to El Nacional (h/t Football 365 ), City held talks with clients of Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr.
The Brazilian is currently enjoying a great season, excelling alongside Karim Benzema in attack and lighting up La Liga with his electric play on the wing. Crucially, he already has 12 goals and four assists in La Liga this season.
Given that Real Madrid took time to develop Vinicius, it would be a huge shock if he is open to any sale in the coming years.
Vinicius has a contract that runs until 2024, and if interest arises from a juggernaut like City, they are sure to move to agree new terms with the Brazilian.
