Manchester City Chief Opens Up On Club’s Summer Recruitment Drive

Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano says the club are planning to recruit a number of players this summer.

Manager Pep Guardiola has already expressed the need to replace midfielder Fernandinho as well as cover at left-back, and Soriano has confirmed that there will be some improvements made to the team:

“You know our squad, it’s very good. It’ll need adjustments but not a revolution. I’m sure there will be some exciting new players coming.”

The likes of Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell, Wolves’ Ruben Neves and Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez are said to be on the club’s shortlist of targets.

However, there appear to be some surprise names being considered as well. West Ham midfielder Declan Rice and Schalke’s Sebastian Rudy are also being looked at, reports the Manchester Evening News.

There has been some frustration among City supporters about the club’s slowness to finalise deals in the past, such as for Jorginho and Frenkie de Jong. They will be hoping Soriano and his recruitment team already have plans in place to sign their targets early on this summer.
