Manchester City cannot afford English players’ wages (but are still interested in Sterling)
Manchester City have not yet managed to pay its players the amount they demand, which is why the club has not been able to demonstrate its maximum. The situation is even worse for the team, because the previous summer it paid the transfer fee of approximately £40 million to Manchester United. The club has a number of transfers on its table, but the main priority is the acquisition of a new goalkeeper.
The situation is not so bad for the Citizens, but it is still too early to make a serious assessment of the team’s performance. The team needs to strengthen its defense, and the main candidate for the job is the Spanish defender, Sergio Regilona. The player has already managed to score several times for the club, and he is considered one of the best in the world.
However, the Citizens are not the only club interested in the player. His representatives have already made a number offers to other clubs, which are not so attractive. For example, the club can offer the player a contract with a salary of approximately €40 million, which would be a good deal for the player and the club. However, the player is not the main star of the club and it is unlikely that he will sign such a contract.
It is also worth noting that the player has not yet signed a contract, so the club will have to pay a transfer fee to the player in order to sign him. The contract is a good option, because it will allow the club to keep the player for a long time and not to have to make any additional payments.
In addition, the team needs a new striker, because in the current season the club managed to achieve a modest result. The main striker of the previous season, Kevin De Bruyne, left the team and signed with the Dutch club, Ajax. The Dutch club is a bit more expensive than Manchester City, but De Bruyn is a proven player who can help the team achieve its goals.
It should be noted that De Bruynes’ departure was not the end of the world for the players of the Citizens. The players were able to sign Eden Hazard, who is a great addition to the team. The Belgian is a talented player who has already scored several times in the Premier League for the London club.
Despite the fact that the club is not able to pay the amount it demands, it is worth noting the fact the club still has a lot of interesting transfers on the table. For instance, the following players can be considered:
* James McCarthy;
* Kelechi Iheanacho;
* Kevin Deayon.
These players are not only interesting for the fans, but they can also help the club achieve its main goals. The Citizens have a number and variety of transfers, which can help them achieve the desired result.
English Premier League table
The English Premier League is one of Europe’s most popular football leagues. The championship of England is considered to be the most prestigious in the entire world, and it attracts a large number of fans from all over the world, which allows the clubs to compete for the title.
Of the top-rated teams, Manchester City is considered the best, and its rivals are Liverpool and Chelsea. The previous season the Citizens managed to win the championship, which once again demonstrates the strength of the squad. The City also managed to finish in the top three of the Premier league for the last time in the club’ history.
This season the team is not as strong, but this does not affect its results. The squad of Manuel Pellegrini is still very strong, and this is demonstrated by the fact they managed to qualify for the Champions League for a third time in a row.
Among the main goals of the City are to finish the season in the first position of the standings, and they have a good chance of doing this. The following factors can help it achieve this goal:
1. Excellent selection of players. The Guardiola’ squad has a good number of players who can be called leaders. The most notable of them are:
· “Pep” Guardiola;
· “Kelechi” Iheana;
· Sergio Aguero.
2. Good teamwork. The fans can always count on the fact their team will not give up and will fight until the very last second.
3. Tactical flexibility. The coach of the “citizens” has a wide range of options in order not to waste time on a certain tactic.
4. Good players’ performance. This season the City has a great number of leaders, which will allow it to achieve its goal.
5. Good management. The management of the Guardiola� team is very good, which has allowed the team to achieve good results.
All these factors can be used by the team in order for it to finish first in the English Premier league.
