But some of Pep Guardiola’s players could also be on the move, with rumours having circulated around Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte and others.
All three are first-team stars, even if they have to settle for more rotation than at other clubs – and whether any end up leaving remains to be seen.
Sterling is open to a move, according to one report cited below, with his impressive performances at Euro 2020 having ensured his stock remains high.
But one former City ace has cast doubt on the club’s chances of landing Grealish, while there’s news on a Barcelona player who would like to play at the Etihad as Mirror Sport brings you the latest.
Sterling ‘open’ to summer move
Raheem Sterling is reportedly open to a summer move away from City.
The 26-year-old dropped down the City pecking order during the second half of last season, prompting speculation he could be sold this summer.
But his impressive performances for England at Euro 2020 appear to have titled the odds in his favour when it comes to deciding his future.
The forward is considering his options and is open to a move this summer, according to The Athletic.
The publication says Guardiola wants to keep Sterling – but with his contract due to expire in 2023, City must tie him down to a new deal or weigh up whether to cash in on him while his stock is high.
City hero casts doubt on Grealish transfer
Former City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has cast doubt on the chances of Jack Grealish joining City this summer.
Grealish is believed to be City’s top target in the summer transfer window, along with Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
But Wright-Phillips is unsure whether Grealish will want to switch to the Etihad – because he will have to compete with the likes of Sterling and Riyad Mahrez rather than being the star man.
“It would be nice to have Jack at City, but it’s a lot of competition,” Wright-Phillips told SBK Sportsbook.
“He’s used to playing every game but he’d have to compete with Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, so it’s not as simple.”
Barcelona star wants to join City
In recent days, City have been linked with a move for Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann if they can’t prise Kane away from Tottenham.
But another Blaugraunas player has stated he would to play for City – because of Guardiola.
Asked which team he would like to join if he were to leave Barca, Riqui Puig plumped for the Blues – because of the chance to play under Guardiola.
In quotes reported by Mundo Deportivo, the 21-year-old said: “Because of the style of play and because he has a coach who understands football like me, Manchester City, but at the moment I am very well in Barcelona and at Barça and I am not planning to leave.”
