Who has Man City been associated with?

Jack Grealish – Aston Villa midfielder reportedly reconsidering his much-touted £ 100m move to City (Mail, July 18); City are looking to sign Grealish after Euro 2020, but Aston Villa remains determined to keep him and has started talks on a new deal (Sky Sports, June 25).

Harry Kane – Kane’s English teammates believe he may refuse to return to pre-season training with Tottenham in an attempt to force a move to City (Telegraph, July 17); City placed a £ 100 million bid on Kane (Sky Sports, June 21). However, in July Pep Guardiola told the Catalan broadcaster TV3: “About the prices [quoted] We’re not going to buy strikers. It’s impossible, we can’t afford it. All clubs have financial problems, we are no exception. We have Gabriel (Jesus) and Ferran (Torres) who were amazing in that position.

“We have young players in the academy and we often play with a wrong nine. There’s a better chance we won’t buy a striker for next season.”

“We’ll do everything we can in the transfer window and if we can’t, we’ll still have the squad that has won the league three times in four years and made it to the Champions League final.”

Robert Lewandowski – Premier League champions City are monitoring the striker’s status at Bayern Munich as they fear Harry Kane will be too difficult to lure away from Tottenham (Daily Mail, July 15).
