Josep Guardiola claims that Manchester City will not sign a new striker in January, even though Ferran Torres’s move to Barcelona is imminent.
Since arriving from Valencia in 2020, the 21-year-old has been impressed and has established himself as a regular in Spain, scoring 13 goals in all competitions during his courageous debut season.
But before City’s Boxing Day clashed with Leicester, Guardiola said he didn’t want to keep the dissatisfied player at Etihad.
Guardiola said at a pre-match press conference, “I want to bring happiness to the players.” “If you are not happy, you have to leave.
“We are not a club where the president and CEO say,” No, you have to stay. ” Players and clubs must agree, this is a business. But if the players want to leave, they go. “
Torres’ departure has strengthened speculation that the city may target new forward signatures in January. This forward played a central role after failing to track Tottenham’s Harry Kane last summer.
Guardiola downplayed those proposals, but claimed that his side would not enter the winter window to attack reinforcements.
“I’m not going to bring a striker,” he said.
