News now: Man City now facing 'transfer emergency' at the Etihad

Dean Jones, a transfer insider, told NEWSNOW that Manchester City is presently dealing with a "transfer emergency" as Kyle Walker approaches the exit door of the Etihad Stadium.

Walker has drawn a lot of attention, and a transfer outside of City currently seems to be the most likely consequence.

Manchester City transfer news

Pep Guardiola, the manager of City, is currently preoccupied with the problem of creating a team that has the desire for success just weeks after claiming the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League treble.

In City's 128-year history, the Spaniard became the first manager to lead the Blues to a European Cup victory; nevertheless, less than a month later, he is going through something of a mini-crisis.

This is due to the fact that several members of City's first team are currently planning their exit strategies as a possible roster revamp looms.

Jones told NEWSNOW that following Ilkay Gundogan, who signed a free transfer to Barcelona last month, a quartet of treble winners may be poised to leave the club.

Riyad Mahrez, Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva, and Walker, according to the transfer insider, are all potentially on the move, with some deals being pursued more aggressively than others.

Walker is one unexpected name on that list, and Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg claims that he is willing to leave the Premier League team in pursuit of a new challenge with Bayern Munich.

Guardiola would lose another senior member of his five-man leadership group once Gundogan left, signaling a significant change in the composition of City's locker room.

Walker's replacement, according to a report from The News now, has already been named by the defending European champions as Benjamin Pavard of Bayern Munich.

What has Dean Jones said about City?

When asked how City's summer transfer window may develop from this point forward, transfer insider Jones acknowledged the Blues were unusually struggling.

Jones told NEWSNOW that City is currently experiencing a "transfer emergency" and claimed that this is the case.

"Normally, you don't lose as many players as City are currently losing after winning a treble. Some of them will depart with their consent, while others are less enthusiastic because their departure was not originally planned.

However, Pavard is a strong defensive option because he is a very excellent player with a powerful game profile, and I believe he would be impenetrable.

What's next for City?

If a deal for Pavard happens, it won't likely cost City a lot of money because, according to rumours in Germany, the Frenchman is reportedly available for roughly £26 million.

That's because Bayern Munich, the reigning German champions, are eager to cash in after Pavard informed them that he had no plans to extend his contract past next year.

Football Insider claims that City may also be considering a deal for Dani Olmo as they attempt to fill the void that Riyad Mahrez's departure for Saudi Arabia may cause.

Mahrez has accepted a move to Saudi Arabia, according to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, who recently spoke with NEWSNOW. Personal terms have already been agreed upon between the player and club.
