Manchester City Transfers

The Latest Manchester City FC Transfer News for 2021- 2022

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Roberto Mancini begins his closed season with many targets on his radar as he looks to reinforce his squad of champions for next season with a host of star names being linked with a move to Eastlands. At the moment there seems to be more players departing Eastlands this summer than arriving sparking worries among fans that the team may be left short handed next season if the manager fails to bring in his top targets.

One of the first players who is likely to be leaving Manchester City permanently is Emmanuel Adebayor who has been on a season long loan at Tottenham. Spurs are said to be extremely interested in retaining the services of the striker and are looking to strike a deal to bring him to White Hart Lane on a permanent deal but with city looking for a much higher price than Tottenham have been willing to pay it is very unclear where the players future lies but it is certain it is not at Eastlands.

The Manchester side have now been seen to enter the race for Arsenals top striker Robin Van Persie as he is set to leave the Emirates as he has chosen not to sign a new deal and now the north London club are looking to cash in on their prized asset before he can walk away free at the end of next season. City as well as Manchester United, Chelsea and Juventus are all attempting to lure the player into their squads with a fee of around twenty five million pounds being touted as the figure arsenal wish to receive for their players services.

Ac Milan have recently stepped up their interest in bringing Edin Dzeko to the San Siro even though manager Roverto Mancini seems reluctant to lose his striker but as Dzeko has found a place in the starting line up hard to achieve he may lose his striker to one of Europe`s biggest clubs for a fee thought to be around the twelve million pound mark.

The future of Carlos Tevez is again up in the balance as the striker has not put to rest rumours that he may be on his way to Paris St Germain this summer with the big spending French team very keen on acquiring his services for next season. After the long feud between Tevez and Mancini last season which resulted in the striker going into self imposed exile in Argentina for four months it is very unclear if the rift has just been cleared publicly rather than in regards of them being ok in a personal fashion.

Real Madris have stepped up their interest in Manchester City defender Micah Richards as he is seen to be one of Jose Mourinho`s top targets for the summer with a fee of around ten million pounds looking to be on the table. City have made no reply as of yet to this offer and we will have to wait and see if Richards will remain at Eastlands next season or could he be on his way to the sunny Madrid.

    • Manchester City expected to want £50m-£60m for forward
    • Thomas Tuchel has had positive talks with Sterling

    Chelsea are preparing an opening bid for Raheem Sterling after Todd Boehly, the club’s new co-owner, told Manchester City of his intention to sign the England forward.

    Thomas Tuchel wants to increase his side’s goalscoring threat and Chelsea, who saw Petr Cech leave his role as their technical and performance adviser yesterday, intend to give their manager the funds to strengthen his squad this summer. Tuchel has identified Sterling as a key target and Boehly, who is leading the club’s recruitment drive, has contacted City to open talks over the 27-year-old.

    Gabriel Jesus is poised to join Arsenal from Manchester City after agreeing personal terms on a five-year deal. The striker will move for a fee of £45m following an agreement between the two clubs.

    His compatriot Edu, Arsenal’s technical director, and head coach Mikel Arteta were a key factor in Jesus accepting the offer to move to the Emirates Stadium. Arteta knows Jesus well having previously worked with the striker when he was on the coaching staff at City under Pep Guardiola.

  • Sat, 25 Jun 2022 19:00:22 +0000: Has Raheem Sterling reached his ceiling? What Manchester City need is certainty | Jonathan Wilson - Manchester City | The Guardian

    For all his goal scoring ability, Pep Guardiola cannot trust his forward to deliver at clutch moments in the biggest games

    Raheem Sterling made a dart in behind Vincent Kompany to receive an angled pass from Luis Suárez. His first touch, with the outside of his right foot, took him outside the line of the right-hand post, some 12 yards from goal, with Kompany and Joe Hart between him and the net. He turned back inside, opening an angle to curl a left-footed finish between Hart and Pablo Zabaleta into the bottom corner. Hart shuffled and Kompany closed in, only for Sterling to jink back and roll the ball through an implausibly large gap into the right side of the goal.

    That was the opener in Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Manchester City in April 2014 but what makes it memorable was not just that it was a vital goal in the title race, rather the way Sterling conjured space where none had seemed to exist. It was that goal, more than anything, that led to the inflated expectations on Sterling going into the World Cup.

Manchester City FC

Manchester City Football Club was Established  in 1880 and the Football Club Nickname is The Citizens.

A Brief History of Manchester City Football Club

Manchester City was founded in 1880, and had several names until 1894, when they were renamed Manchester City. The club has achieved many heights over the course of their illustrious history. Man City is one of the most successful English football clubs of all time, having won the First Division/Premier League titles, FA Cups, and League Cups. Manchester City has had many ups and downs in the past. Although they have spent the most of their time in the Premier League, they did drop to the third tier league as recently as 1999.

Just like their rival Manchester United, City was also founded with a different name. In 1880, Arthur Connell and his daughter Anna Connell took an initiative to create male clubs for sports. He firmly believed that the formation of a men’s sports club would help improve the spirit of society. So, they established a football club under the name of the St. Marks Church football team. In 1884, the club name was changed to the Gorton Association FC. After three years, the club moved to Hyde Road ground and also renamed the club to Ardwick AFC.

Ardwick AFC became a member of the Second Division Football league in 1892-93. Club also brought some changes to the management of the club and hired Joshua Parlby as new manager of the club. In 1894, Parlby suggested that the club should change the name from Ardwick to Manchester City, it would help to grow the club’s popularity. The management committee eventually agreed with Parlby’s suggestion and changed the name of the club to Manchester City. Soon, Man City became the most favorite football club in the city.

Early Success of Manchester City

Manchester City won the Second Division Football league for the first time in 1899, and also earned promotion to the First Division. Just four years later, City won their first major honour in 1904, they defeated Bolton Wanderers by 1 – 0 in the FA Cup final. Man City also performed exceptionally well in the league, finishing second at the table. In the following season, Seventeen players of Manchester City were suspended due to charges of financial misconduct. It had a detrimental effect on the club, exceptional city players including Billy Meredith left the club, and as a result the club was relegated to the Second division.

City was relegated twice in between 1900 to 1910. The club was relegated from the First division at the end of 1901-02 season after finishing 18th on the table, but they earned promotion in the following season. The club was relegated for the second time in the 1908-09 season, although they returned after only one season in Second Division. These fluctuations between the First and Second divisions were very disturbing for the fans. Learn more about new changes at the Club with the Football24-7 Manchester City News reel.

First League Title and more FA Cup wins

City couldn’t win any major title for 30 years. In the 1930s, Man City reached FA Cup finals for two consecutive times in 1933 and 1934. In 1933, City lost the final to Everton, but in the following Year City defeated Portsmouth in the final and claimed its second FA Cup title. The club won their first League title in the 1936-37 season, City was implacable, and scored over 100 goals during the season. After an amazing victory in the league, things didn’t go well for City in the following season. The club was relegated to the Second Division.

Manchester City became the first club in the history of English football to win the First Division league in one season and relegated to the Second Division the following season. City couldn’t win a title for the next 18 years. In the 1950s, the club reached the FA Cup finals for consecutively two times in 1955 and 1956. In 1955, city lost the final to Newcastle United, but in the following season, they defeated Birmingham City 3 -1 in the final to lift their third FA Cup.

More league title and European Success

City was again relegated to the Second Division in 1963. It was time to bring change in the management, City hired Joe Mercer as Manager along with Malcolm Allison. The club won the Second Division title in the following season and earned promotion to the First Division. Mercer also made a few important signings for City including Colin Bell and Mike Summerbee. In 1967-68, Manchester City won the First Division League title for the second time under Mercer’s management.

Manchester City won its fourth FA Cup title in 1969, and a year later, The Club achieved their first European success by winning the UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup. City also won the EFL Cup in the same season, becoming the second English club to win a domestic and European title in the same season. Late 1960s was the most successful period of Manchester City, they won the First Division league title, FA Cup, FA Charity Shield, and European trophy in that period.

Decline of the club

After winning the FA Charity Shield in 1972 and the Football League Cup in 1975-76, Manchester City entered its darkest period to date. The club did not win a trophy for the next 35 years. City hired many experienced managers during this period including Tony Book, Ron Saunders, John Bond, John Benson, Jimmy Frizzell, Billy McNeill, and Howard Kendall, and majority of them could survive only one or two seasons in the club.

In November 1990, City hired Peter Reid as the new manager of the club. Under his management, Man City not only qualified for the top league, but also performed well and finished fifth in the league. But this success was temporary, Peter Reid left Manchester City to join Southampton in 1993, and the club’s fortunes continued to deteriorate. After struggling for three seasons in English Premier League, City was relegated to Division 1. The club also couldn’t survive in Division 1 and was further relegated to the third league tier in1998.

Man City managed to get promoted to Division 1 in 1999 and the Premier League the following season, but was again relegated in 2001. Manchester City hired Kevin Keegan as their new manager, under his management, city not only came out of relegation but also showed consistent performance in the Premier League for the rest of the seasons. The club has never been relegated from the Premier League ever since.

New ownership and an era of glory

In August 2008, Manchester City was purchased by the Abu Dhabi United Group owner Sheikh Mansour. He invested a huge amount of money to rebuild the club. The club started purchasing the best football players available around the world. They spent over £500 million in a few years to purchase big names in football. This set a new era of glory for the club, City won the Premier League title for the first time in 2011-12.

Between 2010 and 2021, City has won five Premier League titles, 2 FA Cup titles, 6 EFL Cup titles, 3 FA Community Shields, and one UEFA Champions League title. In the 2017-18 season of the Premier League, Man City became the first club in the history of the Premier league to achieve 100 points in a single season. We can call the 2010s the club’s most successful era to date.
