Huge: Man City close to completing two mega deals

The Chief executive of Manchester City Ferran Soriano says two more deals are close to completion but they'll have to wait until Euro 2016 is over.

The man who's in charge of the Blues' transfer strategy said that two deals are close – one is thought to be the £40m move for Germany international Leroy Sane and the other may have referred to Oleksandr Zinchenko, whose £1.7million move from Ufa was announced yesterday or Everton defender John Stones.

The Citizens has already landed the Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan for £19.7m to the the Etihad Stadium earlier before the opening of the transfer window and also Spain winger Nolito for for £13.8m.

The team Chief executive Soriano told as quoted by BBC World: “You need to change three, four or five players in a season. We have two new players, one gone and maybe we're halfway."

“There will be some more. Two deals are close, the other deals are fairly advanced. Some players don't want to announce anything until they (the Euros) are finished.” He added.

Soriano was speaking as new coach Pep Guardiola was revealed to fans at the City Football Academy, and he feels the new man in charge will make a difference.

“We believe with Pep we go one step forward in terms of tactical sophistication and playing beautiful football, which is what we want to do,” he said.

“It's not a massive change, just another step in the direction we want to go.


“He had one month on holiday and spent at least half of it working. All the successful people I've known are obsessed. This is how you master an activity.”
