CITY NOT YET DECIDED ON SIGNING NEW STRIKER, SAYS GUARDIOLA

City

Manchester City has not yet decided if they will sign a new striker to replace Sergio Aguero, manager Pep Guardiola said, with the summer transfer window set to close next week.

City signed England playmaker Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for a British record 100 million pounds ($136.49 million), and they are short on central striking options after Aguero joined Barcelona following his City exit at the end of last season.

British media has heavily linked Premier League champions Manchester with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has said the England captain is not for sale.

With the Premier League transfer window scheduled to shut on August 31, time is running out for City to make new signings.

“When we decided not to extend the contract of Sergio Aguero and people asked what we would do, I said many times it would depend on the market,” Guardiola said. “Maybe we will buy, maybe not. It is still the same situation.

“There are still 10 days (left) in the transfer market. We are going to see what happens and it depends on that when we are going to take a decision.

“If the squad stays the same one then I am more than pleased with the team… But, of course, the club has an obligation and a duty to look forward to get better and to feel we can still be in there with a tough Premier League.”

Mancherster, who thrashed newcomers Norwich City 5-0 last weekend, host Arsenal on Saturday.
