Manchester City beaten by Bayern Munich in forward chase as €150 million deal to spark Erling Haaland uncertainty



| Last Updated:


A new week is upon us in the summer transfer window and as has been the trend over the last seven days, day eight brought about very little for Manchester City fans.

The only talk surrounding potential arrivals at Manchester City was that of a negative angle, with the Premier League champions falling short to Bayern Munich when it comes to one of the English top-flight’s best forwards.

On the subject of possible exits, Friday brought about some tenuous claims surrounding the future of Manchester City’s superstar striking sensation Erling Haaland, and fresh hope for those of a Barcelona persuasion through a new sponsorship deal at the La Liga club.

As day eight comes and goes, here is your daily and comprehensive round-up of everything concerning Manchester City and their business during the ongoing summer transfer window!
