Manchester City star receives staggering £740,000-per-week offer as Premier League champions await Barca payment



| Last Updated:


Days two and three of the 2024 summer transfer window brought about plenty of twists and turns from one Manchester City insider, both in terms of arrivals and exits.

The Premier League champions could yet turn to the left-back market this summer, according to one report, as the club continue to monitor developments concerning Chelsea’s on-loan starlet Ian Maatsen and Borussia Dortmund.

In terms of outgoings, it has been reported that Manchester City’s Ederson is the subject of a mind-blowing financial offer from Saudi Arabia, as the Brazilian continues to mull over his future at the Etihad Stadium.

There has also been developments concerning the future of Pep Guardiola, as rumours over the Catalan’s future continue to take various twists and turns as the final year of his Manchester City contract fast approaches with football ongoing over the summer.

Following days two and three of the summer transfer window, here is everything that has been said about what could potentially be on the horizon concerning Manchester City and their business in the coming weeks and months ahead.


Manchester City have ‘minimal’ scouting presence at the ongoing 2024 European Championships in Germany. In terms of knowing who the Premier League champions want this summer, and the pedigree/profile, ‘homework has already been done’, with ‘at least three more’ on top of incoming winger Savio.

Any further loan request will cost them 35% of the player’s £25 million asking price and include a ‘cast-iron purchase agreement’ next summer.
