Manchester City are hoping for some good news by the weekend in their efforts to sign Harry Kane and Jack Grealish as Pep Guardiola pushes through his tenacious summer spending plan.
- Harry Kane and Jack Grealish are Manchester City’s main targets this summer
- They’ve had a hard time, with friendlies canceled and a new FFP investigation
- Pep Guardiola hopes to quickly secure the two stars for a necessary boost
Manchester City’s entire season could depend on their hunt for English heroes Harry Kane and Jack Grealish, and the champions are desperate for a deal soon.
Pressure on the Sky Blues quickly mounts and their season preparations go awry, even before much of the crew has returned to the Northwest from their vacation.
Pep Guardiola has only hosted one friendly for his side, Monday against Preston, after Covid restrictions blocked further matches. New leaked emails have now also raised suspicions about their Financial Fair Play record.

There are even disturbing reports of their two main targets. Daniel Levy is determined to block Kane’s escape, while Aston Villa construct a £200,000-a-week offer to entice their skipper to stay.
However, the Three Lions duo could hold the key to a title defense and City are hopeful they can bring them in before the transfer window closes, according to the report. Sun.
The Premier League champions came a touching distance from achieving the owners’ Champions League goal last season, but Chelsea again denied them.
The Citizens will not stop now and both the striker and the creative winger can take the team to the next level.

Kane would be the more crucial target. Sergio Aguero’s departure to Barcelona this summer and Gabriel Jesus’ inability to convince Guardiola that he alone can be relied upon have raised the stakes with the transfer.
New Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo has also insisted he will have Kane on board next season, but the reported £160million could be too good to turn down.
City will face Championship Preston on Monday, but after their friendly against Troyes on Saturday was canceled, that will be their only warm-up before taking on Leicester in the Community Shield.
