manchester city summary

It’s been a day full of City news – here’s your City Summary:

It’s not been a great day for Joe Hart. After The Times reported that he was ‘pessimistic’ about his chances of finding a new club before the end of the transfer window, Liverpool have confirmed that they have no interest in England’s number one.

One man who is on his way out of the club is Oleksandr Zinchenko, who joins PSV on loan. Good luck Oleks!

Pep Guardiola held his pre-match press conference today, and told the press that Claudio Bravo will be the last of the incomings this summer. Guardiola also confirmed that the Chilean stopper won’t be making his City debut against West Ham on Sunday.

Guardiola also claimed that the whole squad were fit to train today, although Kelechi Iheanacho’s father said that his son will be out for two weeks, while there was also no sign of Jason Denayer on the club’s official training video. Pep also singled out Aleksander Kolarov for praise.

West Ham have a whole host of injury worries ahead of Sunday’s game, adding to their problems after their humiliating defeat to Astra Giurgiu on Thursday evening.

City have a mixed record against West Ham, with The Irons proving to be a bit of a ‘bogey’ side in recent meetings.

After Sunday’s game, the attention will switch to finding clubs for players who are not in Pep’s plans.

In other news, Kevin De Bruyne has been named in Roberto Martinez’s first Belgium squad, while David Silva and Nolito have been named in Julien Lopetegui’s first Spain squad.
