Manchester City Could Be Set For £200 Million Transfer Budget Boost

It comes as no surprise that Manchester City’s incomings in the playing department this summer are expected to be constantly under the microscope until the start of the 2022/23 season.

It goes without saying that Erling Haaland has been the talk of the town since his arrival at the Etihad Stadium, as both fans and pundits alike cannot help but speculate about the potential impact of one of Europe’s most feared goalscorers in a Manchester City side that is already widely considered as the best team in the world.

Similarly, the coup of Julian Alvarez is one that has sent a majority of City fans in a tizzy, partly due to the fact that the Argentine forward is often being compared to club legend Sergio Aguero, but also due to the exciting aspect of the prodigious youngster being a bit of an unknown commodity in European football.

In addition, transfer targets such as Brighton & Hove Albion’s Marc Cucurella and Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips have stirred conversation amongst the Etihad faithful, as the pair could strengthen the left-back and defensive midfield areas respectively before the start of next season.

While it is expected that Manchester City’s latest additions are set to dominate the headlines, new details have emerged regarding how the club’s possible outgoings could fund their summer targets.

As per a report from James Ducker of the Telegraph, Manchester City could generate in excess of £200 million just through player sales this summer, as Pep Guardiola’s side plan to shake up’ their squad ahead of next season in the pursuit of yet more silverware.

It has been stated that after Ferran Torres’ sale to Barcelona in January this year, in a deal that could potentially rise to £55 million, the forward duo of Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling could also be sold for around £50 million and £60 million in the summer respectively.

Additionally, the report mentions that with Spanish international Pedro Porro joining Sporting CP on a permanent deal for £7 million and highly-rated goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu looking set to sign for Southampton for £15 million, the revenue incurred from the two young stars’ exits could also be added to Manchester City’s war chest in preparation for next term.

Other potential sales include Yangel Herrera and Morgan Rogers - who spent last season on loan at Espanyol and Bournemouth respectively, and could now potentially fetch the Premier League champions a combined £20 million from their sales.

While all these outgoings could add a sizeable approximate sum of £207 million to Manchester City’s transfer kitty, the departure of either one of key players such as Oleksandr Zinchenko, Nathan Ake and Ilkay Gundogan could only further raise the club's potential funds that could be utilised in the summer window.

As a result, it is clear to see that a whole host of outgoings could equally impact Manchester City’s preparation ahead of next season as much as their much-discussed blockbuster arrivals.
