With football, all wrapped up for the season, except the women’s World Cup. The options for fans of the domestic game are the transfer window and love island.
With no football, transfer rumours become more and more sought after. Following on from a conversation between Pep Guardiola and Leicester City’s Ben Chillwell on the pitch, it only right to link the two together in this crazy offseason.
Chillwell however, has been linked with Man City in the past following Mendy’s injury worries and Zinchenko’s inability to fully place his marker as the number one full back.
So assuming if you are here reading this, you are interested in what players Pep is going for this season, here are two players I’d like to see Manchester City go for…
Matthjis De Ligt
De Ligt has been named on every club’s wishlist this season, and while most of the talk has been for him going to the other Manchester club, with Kompany leaving the club, a world-class centre back would be a welcome addition.
Whether Manchester City will get involved in what will be a heated bidding war with a number of European clubs is a different question, but there is no arguing that the Ajax man would be a huge asset to any club.
There’s been a lot of talk around Joao Felix as a young striker who could make a name for himself at the club. However, I’d look elsewhere here, and suggest Takefusa Kubo, who turned 18 on the day this was written and could be an excellent prospect.
He has been playing for senior sides at the mere age of 17, and is known as the Japanese Messi. Having had an excellent grounding in the Barcelona academy he could fit well into the City set up. Rumours are floating about that he wants to return to Europe and, there is bound to be big interest and big money for this potential future superstar.
