Manchester City “look forward to good news by the weekend in their efforts to sign Harry Kane and Jack Grealish as Pep Guardiola pushes his own with his tenacious summer spending plan”
- Harry Kane and Jack Grealish are Manchester City’s main targets this summer
- They have had a rough time, with friendlies canceled and a new FFP investigation
- Pep Guardiola hopes to secure the two stars quickly for a needed boost
Manchester City’s entire season could hinge on their pursuit of English heroes Harry Kane and Jack Grealish, and the champions are desperate for a deal soon.
Pressure is mounting quickly on the Sky Blues with their season preparations going sour before much of the squad has even returned to the Northwest from their vacation.
Pep Guardiola has only hosted one friendly match for his team, against Preston on Monday, after Covid restrictions blocked other matches. New leaked emails have also raised suspicion about their financial fair play record.

There have even been disturbing reports regarding their two main targets. Daniel Levy is determined to block Kane’s escape, while Aston Villa builds a bid of £ 200,000 per week to entice their skipper to stay.
However, the Three Lions duo could be the key to a title defense and City are hoping they can come in before the transfer window closes, according to the Sun.
The Premier League champions were a touching distance away from finally reaching their owners’ lofty goal of Champions League glory last season, but Chelsea turned them down again.
The Citizens aren’t going to stop now, and the forward and creative winger could take the team to the next level.

Kane would be the most crucial target. Sergio Aguero’s exit for Barcelona this summer and Gabriel Jesus’ inability to convince Guardiola that he can be uniquely reliable have upped the ante with the transfer.
New Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo has also insisted he will have Kane on board next season, but the announced £ 160million could be too good to be denied.
City face Championship Preston on Monday, but following the cancellation of their Saturday friendly with Troyes, it will be their only warm-up before facing Leicester in the Community Shield.
