Manchester City could move again in the transfer market this summer, well-informed Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya claims.
Noises in recent days from the Etihad Stadium have suggested that City may leave their major business at signing Riyad Mahrez, and no longer pursue a midfielder after a fruitless pursuit of Jorginho that eventually saw him join Chelsea.
However, there is still plenty of time left and City have been known in the past to pull off a surprise. Deals such as those for Nicolas Otamendi and Bernardo Silva happened very quickly and without many rumours leading in.
Jose suggests that both Miralem Pjanić, a player being increasingly linked with City in Italy, and Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovačić, are players of interest to Pep Guardiola.
He suggests City want to be private and discreet about any further transfer business to avoid another drawn out saga like the Jorginho situation, which dragged on for weeks and weeks before ending in disappointment.
Are City ready to strike again in the transfer market? Jose Alvarez believes they could be…
Both could be difficult negotiations but will be so important that the players show publicly their interest for the signing. City doesn't want more "Jorginho's saga", where the player and the agent made a deal with the club and finally refuse it.
