In a very long amount of time, Manchester city is having an inactive window in the transfers this season. They did make have any marquee transfer this season yet. The only transfer they made is the former English International goalkeeper Scott Carson from Derby County and that is also a free transfer.
Manchester city are linked with the English International forward Harry Kane from last season and it seems like they will sign the English captain for a fee believed to be around £160 million. Kane who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur wants to play Champions League football which his current side cannot offer him this season.
Can Manchester City Defend Their League Title This Season? – Analysis
The defending Premier League Champions have also let their key forward Sergio Aguero go for free who joined Barcelona this season. Aguero played in the blue half of Manchester for over a decade. They seriously need a replacement for the Argentinian footballer.
Another name that is linked with the blue half of Manchester is Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish. The 25 year old English International is believed to be linked with the defending Premier League Champions with his fee believed to be around £150m.
Pep Guardiola’s side is already a championship contender with whatever players they have in their squad. But if they could sign both Harry Kane and Jack Grealish they would be nearly unstoppable and they would be the biggest contender for the 2021-22 English Premier League.
Among the other teams, Manchester United look to be more active than the other clubs with two big names already signed for the red side of Manchester. They have finalized Jaden Sancho for a fee believed to be £73m. Rafael Varane from Real Madrid is also closing in on a £42m switch to Manchester United. The Red Devils are a serious contender this year.
Liverpool have made only one signing so far; Ibrahima Konate for £36m from RB Leipzig. After their key midfielder Gini Wijnaldum left for PSG they could not replace him either. It is difficult to call Liverpool a contender to win the league this year.
Chelsea have not made any key signings yet either. But the blue half of London are keen on landing several players, Erling Haaland is believed to be their main target for this season.
