Man City targeting five signings, Man Utd eyeing PSG midfielder and Chelsea offer striker to Leeds


After finishing 18 points behind Premier League champions Liverpool, Pep Guardiola’s side are planning a significant squad overhaul ahead of next season.

Manchester City are set to hand manager Pep Guardiola a £300m transfer budget to help improve the club’s chances of winning the Premier League title next season, as per The Athletic.

The 2018/19 English champions have already completed the signing of Ferran Torres from Valencia and have also agreed a deal with Bournemouth for defender Nathan Ake.

But Guardiola is unwilling to stop there as the former Barcelona boss has also added Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly to the list of players he wants to sign this summer.

City are also targeting the signing of an unnamed £100m striker, who is said to be on the radar of the club’s scouting department for the last 18 months.

Reports claim that United will open discussions with PSG for Gueye following the end of the French club’s Champions League campaign.

Manchester United are lining up a move for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye, with reports in France claiming that the former Everton and Aston Villa midfielder could be back in the Premier League after spending just one season in Ligue 1.

Le10 Sport claims that the Red Devils are admirers of the Senegal international and will face competition from fellow English outfit Wolves for the midfielder’s signature.

It is also being reported that United will open discussions for the 30-year-old with PSG following the end of their Champions League campaign.

Gueye’s potential move to the Old Trafford will see the Senegalese midfielder playing for his third Premier League club in the last five years. Before moving to PSG from Everton last summer, the defensive midfielder was part of the Aston Villa side that had bought him for £9m from Lille in 2015.

Following the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, the Belgian striker has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have offered out-of-favor striker Michy Batshuayi to Premier League newcomers Leeds United, according to Get French Football News.

Batshuayi scored eight goals and provided three assists in all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign but has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

The 26-year-old was already behind 2nd-choice striker Olivier Giroud and the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig has further reduced his importance for the London-based club.

The Belgian striker has been unable to make his mark for the Blues since joining them from Marseille in 2016. He has spent the lion’s share of his time as a Chelsea player on loan at the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace.
