Manchester City Want To Make One Last Signing This Summer: 3 Options They Should Look At

Manchester City have been the most active side in the transfer as Pep Guardiola has emphasized toward building a strong squad to fend off competitions in the upcoming season.

An underwhelming last season probably paved the way for some new signings as Pep has been very adamant to prove his worth in the Premier League. Since 2008 City have emerged as a potential power house in the European circuit following the takeover by billionaire Sheikh Mansour.

City witnessed a quite difficult season as they crashed out from the Champions League while they finished third in the Premier League. The Spanish gaffer has already sanctioned a mass clear out and a few more are expected to follow the path.

Despite the recent spending, the ex-Barcelona reportedly wants to make yet another stellar signing to complete his wish list. Let’s have a look at three players who might be the next entrant at the Etihad Stadium this summer:

William Carvalho

Injury to Illkay Gundogan forced the gaffer to change his plans last season and with the German yet to be back on his feet, it wil be pretty hard for the manager to implement his strategy.

For the current scenario, Pep needs to bring in a combative force in the midfield and William Carvalho could be the solution to this problem. The Sporting Lisbon playmaker has all the basic needs to thrive in the Premier League and Guardiola should make the move.

Alexis Sanchez

The Chilean attacker has been the subject of interests this summer but due to Arsene Wenger’s stubbornness, all the clubs have managed a safe distance from the player.

The Chilean attacker has turned down a new contract from the club and has been relentlessly trying to force a move away, this summer. He had a pretty healthy relationship with Pep from his time at Barcelona and the gaffer will be more than happy to welcome him at Etihad Stadium.

City probably have one of the strongest attacking line-ups in Europe right now and Sanchez’s addition will give them an added advantage in the Champions League given the player’s performances in the competition recently.

Ben Gibson

There has been uncertainty over John Stones since he arrived at the Etihad Stadium. The English international hasn’t done justice to his price tag and was pretty shaky last season.

Stones’ unreliable performances at the heart of the defence might lead the way for a new defender and if this happens Ben Gibson should be the preferred choice. Middlesbrough’s defence was one of the strongest last season and credit should go to Gibson. So if City feels the need, Gibson could be a very suitable choice.
