Man City won’t pursue any top-level striker in the summer.
Pep Guardiola has reiterated that the club won’t be signing the England captain or any prominent striker in the summer to replace Sergio Aguero who’s leaving the club in the summer for free.
However, according to reports, Daniel Levy won’t accept any offers for their star striker from their domestic rivals.
Pep told Sky Sports: “There is a big chance we are not going to sign a striker this summer.
“We have enough players in the first-team right now and we have interesting players in the academy, so there is a big chance that, because of the economic situation in the world right now, we are not going to sign a striker next season.
“With these prices, we are not going to buy any striker. It’s impossible, we can’t afford it. That is not going to happen. All the clubs struggle financially, and we are not an exception.
“We have Gabriel Jesus, we have Ferran Torres, who played incredibly this season in that position, we have young players in the academy, and we play many times with a false nine.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen, maybe it is going to happen, but maybe we are not going to buy any striker for the next season. Today there is more chance we are not going to buy any striker for the next season.”
