When the summer transfer window becomes finally open, Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG are expected to spend a lot of money for new acquisitions after a poor run in the current season.
The 2016-17 European football season is coming to an end in some few days. Clubs across Europe are keeping close targets on players they’re interested in bringing to their different homes in a bid to strengthen their sides to challenge for more silverware next season. In the upcoming season, there’ll be clubs who’ll miss out on the prestige Champions League football while some will make a return to it.
Clubs that will be returning for the competition will be in need of more players to meet up with challenges while some will invest money to strengthen themselves on a domestic level. Let’s take a look at the five clubs who’re likely to break the bank for new players this summer:
#1 Manchester City
Having missed out on silverware this season, City boss Pep Guardiola is likely to go all guns blazing in the transfer market. Most of the Spaniard’s midfielders, defenders, and goalkeepers at Manchester City have failed to get use to his playing style which is likely to lead a mass exodus at the Etihad stadium this summer.
The Citizens needs upgrade in some certain areas including a goalkeeper, at least four new defenders comprising one at each position as well some midfielder in the central midfield where has failed to find the ideal combination suited for his style of football.
Additionally, if reports making the rounds about Guardiola’s rifts with Argentinian forward, Sergio Aguero bears fruits, then he’ll be leaving the Etihad as well. With the manager, likely to go after top-talents or upcoming talents in a few of these positions, it’ll take City quite an amount of cash to make this happen.
