Man City have insane four-player summer transfer shortlist despite being on for the treble
| Last updated
Manchester City might be closing in on an astonishing treble this season but that doesn't mean transfer plans are being halted.
Quite the opposite in fact, with new transfer reports suggesting Pep Guardiola's side are set for a bumper summer window of strengthening.
City already have the Premier League title secured – a fifth domestic crown in six years, all under Guardiola – and are now preparing for the FA Cup and Champions League finals, against Manchester United and Inter Milan respectively.
But reports from the Mirror claim City are hunting some top-bracket targets ahead of the summer, with Alexis Mac Allister, Julio Enciso, Joshua Kimmich and Josko Gvardiol all on their radar.
Brighton midfielder Mac Allister looks very likely to be on the move this summer, with United and Liverpool also widely credited with an interest in the Argentina World Cup winner.
His teammate Enciso has burst onto the scene in the second half of this Premier League season and, at just 19, the Paraguayan forward looks to have huge potential. Keeping hold of Brighton's best players will be a major issue for boss Roberto de Zerbi this summer.
Bayern stalwart Kimmich is a former Guardiola student and could provide some extra nous and versatility in the City backline and midfield should he make the move from Munich. Meanwhile, Gvardiol – who almost joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig in January – is a highly sought-after left-footed centre-back who could also slot seamlessly into the City side.
None of the players will come cheap. But it's bad news for City's rivals, who might have been thinking the Etihad club may rest on their laurels after such unprecedented success in recent years.
They will become just the second English club in history – after Sir Alex Ferguson's 1999 United side – to complete the treble if they win their finals next month.
It's up to United to put a spanner in the works at Wembley in the FA Cup final on June 3. The European showdown with Inter in Istanbul comes a week later on June 10.
