With two weeks now on the clock for the ongoing summer transfer window, Thursday brought about plenty of familiar names for Manchester City fans.

On the arrivals front, there was plenty of conversation around a whole host of names, ranging from a Bayern Munich duo to the latest surrounding the likes of Eberechi Eze and Pedro Neto from within the Premier League.

Our latest edition of the daily transfer round-up also includes an update on the contractual future of Pep Guardiola, as concerns continue to linger surrounding the Catalan’s current Manchester City deal and its expiration date of summer 2025.

As the two-week mark hits the ongoing 2024 summer transfer window, here is your comprehensive and daily round-up of all things being reported about Manchester City and their market business!

Arrivals

Fabrizio Romano: “Man City appreciate Dani Olmo, Man City like the player, he was one of the players they had on the list, for example last summer or two years ago. But at the moment, as of now, Manchester City are NOT working on a deal for Dani Olmo…”

“At the moment, the intention of Manchester City is not to advance on this kind of solution, because they are looking at different opportunities, different positions. So as of today, Dani Olmo is going to Man City? NO. At the moment the situation is quiet.” (Fabrizio Romano, YouTube)

Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich and Jamal Musiala have been scouted and verified by Manchester City as elite additions for the future if they become possible. A few months back City were aware of Kimmich’s potential availability, and Pep Guardiola has always loved the idea of bringing him. Arsenal have been linked, yet the prospect of linking up with the Premier League champions is of most interest. The signing of Kimmich is more likely than Musiala. (Dean Jones, GIVEMESPORT)

Dani Olmo is believed to be high on Manchester City’s list of fancied signings. The 26-year-old has been in City’s sights in case other plans fall through, and the club already have good relations with Leipzig, having dealt with them to sign Josko Gvardiol. (Dean Jones, GIVEMESPORT)

Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong is of interest to Manchester City. (Dean Jones, GIVEMESPORT)

Wolves’ Pedro Neto is available at the right price this summer and Manchester City have an interest in him. The Premier League champions also have a distanced interest in Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze. (Dean Jones, GIVEMESPORT)

Manchester City made a late move to hijack Bayern Munich’s Michael Olise deal. It is believed City made contact with Olise’s camp to try to force him into a late change of mind, however the Premier League champions’ ambush failed. (Pete O’Rourke, Football Insider)

Pep Guardiola is currently in the market for a “world-class” wide forward to be an immediate starter in his Manchester City side. (Pete O’Rourke, Football Insider)

Jadon Sancho has been offered to Manchester City in recent weeks. Manchester United are ‘willing’ to sell for £40 million, while the forward has also been touted to Chelsea and Arsenal. The winger earns around £275,000 a week, and there are no takers at those wages. (Tolmie’s Hairdoo)

Reported Manchester City target, Dzenan Pejcinovic has signed a long-term deal with VfL Wolfsburg. VfL sporting director, Sebastian Schindzielorz: “It’s no accident Dzenan attracted interest from top European clubs, which makes us all the more pleased that we’ll continue our path together in the long term…”

Oliver Reiß will become the new head coach of Manchester City under-18s. The 41 year-old will leave Hertha BSC after 17 years at the club, and could have become an assistant coach at RSC Anderlecht and Hertha, but ‘consciously chose’ City’s opportunity. (Florian Plettenberg)

Rayan Ait-Nouri has informed Wolves of an intention to leave the club this summer. Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are all ‘tracking’ the 23-year-old, although the Merseyside outfit are currently in ‘pole position’ to land the left-back. (Abdel Hamed)
