Manchester City reportedly have no plans to dip into the transfer market this winter, despite a couple of worrying areas in an otherwise fantastic squad.
Fernandinho’s absence in the heart of midfield has been felt, with neither Ilkay Gundogan or John Stones able to carry out his duties with the same effect. Meanwhile, Fabian Delph’s form as a left-back has deteriorated and Oleksandr Zinchenko doesn’t seem to be a long-term answer in the absence of injury prone Benjamin Mendy.
Even so, the word from the club is no signings in January – a viewpoint Blues on social media disagree with.
We polled City supporters via our Twitter account, with 14,212 voting and only 9% believe City should avoid the market this winter.
– 51% believe City should buy BOTH a midfielder and left-back in January.
– 25% believe just a midfielder is needed.
– 15% want a new left-back in January.
– 9% believe no signings are needed this winter.
Will Guardiola’s stance change? Time will tell, but it seems that unlike last January, when attempts for Alexis Sanchez and Riyad Mahrez were made and Aymeric Laporte did arrive, City plan to stick with what they have for the remainder of the 2018-19 Premier League season.
POLL: Pep recently ruled out any activity, but do you think City should enter the transfer market in January? 🤔
