Manchester City are starting to show form (in January 2021) having stuttered and looked ill-equipped at the start of the season. However they are still blunt in some areas and need to add an edge in attack. Tifo takes a look at the areas of weakness, and suggests solutions in the form of players.

  • Left back and Defensive Midfield is priority. Aguero, Jesus and Torres could carry the job up until Haaland has the contract clause activated.

  • There is a reasonable chance City could lose the Haaland contest to Chelsea. If they do, it's likely Tammy Abraham will want out of CFC (he has said as much). Tammy Abraham is very much a Guardiola style number 9, with a proven scoring record in the EPL. Stranger things have happened, and Abramavich has given Tuchel a 260m Euro transfer budget for the summer. Could be an interesting summer.

  • Couldn’t agree with your choice, we have quality players like gundo Bernardo foden in the midfield, we don’t need a player like aouar that is not even as skilful as the players I mentioned

  • I think for the most part city has great players that are yet to hit their prime. In that respect, I agree with most of the options said in the video. Erling Haaland would be a great signing, also his dad played for the club. Imagine De Bruyne curling balls into a striker with the speed, athletism, and height of Haaland. For midfield, City currently has an option in yangel Herrara whos good but hasn't impressed as others have in the last few years. Douglas Luiz is another option city still have a buy-back clause on him with increments each year rising to 45 million. The attacking midfield is a hard position to replace with De Bruyne producing the stats that he is and not relying on his pace, he could hopefully play for another few years. Bernardo and Gundogan have shouldered the attacking duties in his absence.

  • City need a proper left back more than anything. Mendy isn’t good enough, Zinchenko isn’t quite there yet and Cancelo is more effective on the right. Someone like Guirrero from Dortmund could be effective

  • I like these videos, but always feel there is a huge imbalance to them. They identify issues within squads that need fixing right now, only to go on and mainly name talents who are still a few years away from playing premier league football. Other than the first picks, it's unrealistic that any of the other players would make an impact at city right at this moment. It's nice for finding out about promising youngsters though!

  • Aouar 50m, haaland 90m, zakaria 50m, angelino or taglifico 35m that's 225m and hardly any issue for citys spending

  • City need a left back mendy is inconsistent n always injured

    Fabio FernandesFabio FernandesMaand geleden
  • i’m not sure an attacking central midfielder is needed given the presence of foden bernardo gundogan’s new role and mahrez playing on the wing. whilst maybe still an area city need to improve in due time, the left back position is in greater need of improving as ben mendy has never recovered from that injury and zinchenko isn’t a left back

    Louis OddieLouis OddieMaand geleden
  • If city bought aouar itd be a great signing. Martinez is top top class and a guardiola type striker, i think haaland is more of a gamble as i dont like big strikers, id worry hed be a white lukaku. But he does look sensational, has city links and i like a gamble so id try getting him. No idea about zakaria, only know him from gaming, sounds half decent but aouar is world class, martinez is pretty much top notch and haaland has the ceiling to be the greatest striker ever-ish. At least he could add to the debate. Good luck to city. Hope you have a successful year.

  • City just need a striker for January, I would take either tammy abraham, ivan toney or Calvert lewin and in the summer when fernandinho leave without any question we have to sign a cdm, possibly ndidi and I'm happy with zinchenko as left back but pep should try and train ake to be a complete left back.

    destiny freemandestiny freemanMaand geleden
  • I also think we are taking Gabby Jesus for granted, if you watch the matches it is clear that he is incredibly talented, he’s a complete total footballer, remember he’s only 23 I can see him becoming the best striker in the world

  • I honestly think we don’t need another cdm stones n Dias have proved that they are capable of proper defending, no more otemendi or mangala we have the best defence in the league. Maybe a back up for Rosi would be nice if Dino leaves.

Danilo is not that good but more outreagously the suggestion at the real Madrid video of Alvarez cause no one in the Netherlands thinks hé is special or something more like a failed transfer. (To be fair I am supporter of Feyenoord but still like everyone with knowledge is not very keen on the players mentioned)
