The rumour mill is well underway sparking exciting news and interest as we approach the summer transfer window. Let’s look at the latest rumours surrounding Manchester City as we review and make sense of the latest incoming news.
Man City step up interest in Bukayo Saka
Since the last week, there has been news reporting Man City identifying Arsenal superstar Bukayo Saka with a potential move to the Etihad this summer. After another fruitful season with the Gunners, Saka enters his final two years on the contract, giving rise to interest from several clubs. Arsenal will be looking to secure a contract renewal with the youngster in the coming days as it is inevitable that an offer lands from elsewhere that he will not be able to refuse.
Saka is a name that has popped around Etihad in the past few days as Man City look to strengthen the team and increase their squad depth.
Views on the rumours:
Although Man City has distanced themselves from such rumour links with the England International, still Saka’s transfer remains a possibility with the influx of news over the last few days. The gunners will need to wrap up his renewal quickly in order to wander off the interest but there is a slight chance that Saka will be reluctant to extend with Arsenal. After playing all of the 38 games in the Premier League last season, scoring 11 goals and registering 7 assists for Arsenal during the 2021/22 season, there is no doubt that he should be playing Champions League football with all that talent at just 20 years of age.

Bukayo Saka is Arsenal born and bred working his way up through the Arsenal ranks and then cementing his position in the starting line-up with his attacking incisiveness and creativity will surely favour the gunners in securing a renewal soon.
While City has already added the likes of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez to the attacking ranks, I can hardly see Pep Guardiola sparking a significant move for the British International.
