Manchester City are planning to fortify their squad ahead of the 2021-2022 season with two English stars, Henry Kane and Jack Grealish. But they can’t get the two players cheaply.

Hence, the coach of the club, Pep Guardiola is reportedly mandated to raise some money for the transfer deals by selling some players this summer.

Recall that the reigning Premier League champions have already made a £100 million bid for the services of Henry Kane but his club, Tottenham Hotspur turned it down. However, the 27-year-old England’s captain reportedly intends to force his way out of the club.

Also, Manchester City have reportedly lined up £100 million for the services of Jack Grealish. But his club, Aston Villa, are trying, by all means, to keep the 25-year-old left-winger at the club beyond the coming season.

However, the latest reports claimed that Grealish who is the captain of Aston Villa is considering grabbing the reported £100 million deal if he has the chance to.

Since both Henry Kane and Jack Grealish still have three and four years contracts with their respective clubs, their next move is not in their hands.

But Manchester City are hopeful that they would be able to convince the clubs of the two players with the right bids. Hence, City must raise over £250 million to execute the two deals.

A report by a Spanish publication Fichajes claimed that coach Pep Guardiola has set aside five players that he intends to sell to raise money to sign Henry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer.

The publication claimed that the players Manchester City intend to sell include: Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, and Aymeric Laporte.

With these listed players, Pep Guardiola could raise over £260 million which is expected to be used to execute Henry Kane and Jack Grealish’s deals.

The reason why the five players are listed is that, with the availability of Henry Kane and Jack Grealish at Manchester City, their services might no longer be required as always.

Latest reports claimed that Italian Serie A side, Juventus are already planning to buy Gabriel Jesus this summer. Once the Italian giants pay City at least €60 million, the Brazilian striker will be theirs.

Aside from the five A-list players mentioned above, Manchester City are trying to sell more of their less regular players to raise more funds to upgrade their squad ahead of the coming season.
