Pep updates on Gabriel Jesus’ situation

“I think the club needs a striker,” coach Pep Guardiola in a press conference before the Manchester derby.

“You say, we play great without a striker, because the team is winning. But when we don’t win, you say we need a striker.”

“How do these players play without a striker in the squad? In the Premier League you have to play with a striker. So we need a striker, I think the club will try. try.”

 Pep confirmed the plan to recruit the striker. 

With a statement from Pep, the Etihad Stadium team will definitely restart the plan to recruit Harry Kane in the upcoming transfer window. Remember, The Citizens did everything to convince Chairman Daniel Levy to ‘let go’, and Kane himself also pressured to be transferred to Man City last summer. However, in the end, Levy still decided to keep the English striker.

However, the situation is expected to change completely in the upcoming market, when Kane’s contract only has about 2 years remaining. Therefore, the summer will be the most suitable time for Spurs to sell this striker and collect the highest possible fee. With Man City, witnessing Kane’s superb performance in the recent defeat to Tottenham, perhaps they will not hesitate to break the safe for this star.

Harry Kane is still a top striker in Europe. 

Of course, everyone knows that Kane is also an important transfer target of Man Utd. But compared to Man City, the attraction of the Red Devils is significantly lower, when Kane is still hungry for the first major title in his career. In addition, Man City can focus entirely on Kane, while Man Utd has too many other positions in the squad that need to be upgraded. 

Obviously, Man City can also target Erling Haaland, and with the bad relationship between ‘super agent’ Mino Raiola and Man Utd, and the story of Roy Keane ending the career of Alf-Inge Haaland – father of Erling Haaland, it is clear that the Old Trafford team continues to be at a disadvantage in this deal.

On top of that, Man Utd is also likely to miss out on both Kane and Haaland, with the Norwegian striker said to have a desire to play in La Liga. In general, if Pep has decided to buy a striker, this is definitely negative news for Man Utd.
