Manchester City ready to make big signings: ‘It will be a strange window’

Manchester City chief Txiki Begiristain has confirmed that the club will be bringing in new players this summer. The Spanish director admits that the summer transfer window will be strange due to the fact it will run until October and that the Champions League will not end until the end of August.

“We are working a lot, we have to be ready,” Begiristain told the club’s website. “It will be a strange window because people have to move fast, we have to bring players who can improve our squad but also it means that maybe someone can leave.” Man City are believed to be looking at a central defender this summer and Begiristain admits City fans will have to wait until the end of August.

“It will be strange also because we have the Champions League so we have to wait to move forward until the Champions League is finished. We might have less time than ever but we’ll have time to make the changes we need to improve the squad.” Pep Guardiola‘s side have finished in second place this season in the Premier League, 18 points behind champions Liverpool.
