Pep Guardiola is satisfied with the squad he has in hand, although City have yet to sign a striker this summer.

After the 2020-21 season, Sergio Aguero left Man City after the expiration of his contract. The Argentina international joined Barcelona on a free transfer. To fill that gap, Man City aims to recruit Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

But since the beginning of the summer until now, the Manchester team has not been able to get what they need. Man City just added 1 new rookie, midfielder Jack Grealish for £ 100 million. With less than two weeks to go before the transfer window closes, Pep Guardiola says he will be happy even if there are no new arrivals.

The 50-year-old coach told a press conference before the Premier League game against Norwich: “I’m happy with what I have, even more.”

Kane is still the top target of Man City and they are trying to negotiate with Tottenham. In addition, The Citizens are also linked with Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo, Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic and more recently Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

Regarding former student Lewandowski, Guardiola said: “Lewy is an important player for Bayern Munich and he will stay there. I won’t talk about 11 days left in the transfer market.”

“I don’t know what will happen, no one can predict. Saturday we will go out and then prepare for the Arsenal game.”

On the opening day in the Premier League, Man City lost 0-1 to Tottenham on a day without many pillars. Kevin De Bruyne only entered the field in the second half and continued to race against time to recover in time to welcome Norwich.

Regarding Man City’s forces, coach Guardiola revealed: “The rest of Man City are fit except for Phil Foden who just returned after focusing on the national team. De Bruyne has a bit of an ankle problem but will be fine on Saturday.”
