As reported by the British media Team Talk, the Manchester Citand is interested in acquiring the services of Florian Wirtz in the next summer transfer market with the aim of offering Pep Guardiola the greatest number of variants.
The Citizen team is looking for a midfielder who can enhance their rotation in the midfield area. The imminent departure of Ilkay Gündogan, who ends his contract in the summer of 2023 and everything seems to indicate that he will become a new FC Barcelona player, and the possible sale of Bernardo Silva, who wants to leave the Premier League and is being targeted by several important clubs, will force the club to have to incorporate pieces for the interior area.
Florian Wirtz, Pep Guardiola’s new wish for Manchester City’s midfield
Florian Wirtz is a profile that Pep Guardiola likes a lot because he is showing an impressive performance after his long-term injury and has become an important piece within Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen, who plays football very similar to that of Catalan coach. The problem that Manchester City has is that Florian Wirtz is being targeted by most of the greats in Europe. FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Liverpool have shown interest in taking over their services in the next summer transfer market.
The German ends his contract in the summer of 2027 and his price is around 70 million euros, so the club that wants him will have to make a significant investment to close his signing. Other names that have sounded to arrive at Manchester City in summer are those of Gavi (FC Barcelona), Declan Rice (West Ham United), Romeo Lavia (Southampton) and Mateo Kovacic (Chelsea).
