Five Guardiola Transfer Decisions To Be Questionable

Five Guardiola Transfer Decisions To Be Questionable

Pep Guardiola is one of the managers with outstanding track record with Barcelona and also Bayern Munich. Unfortunately his prowess has not been proven in Manchester City at this time.

Last season Manchester City finished third in the Premier League standings and failed in the Champions League, when they became the club with the largest transfer expenses. Last summer The Citizens, along with rivals Manchester United, are said to be contributing greatly to making the football market soaring. And this summer the spike in the price of players re-occur.

Unfortunately purchases made Guardiola is still not good enough for Manchester City. Even some of Guardiola’s transfer activities became a big question mark during his career at Etihad.

Enter Claudio Bravo to replace Jose Hart, then replace Bravo with Ederson

If you want to replace the England No.1 goalkeeper would need players who can have a big impact for the club. Unfortunately Bravo’s bad performance, he got a lot of criticism for failing to make last season’s rescue.

This is the biggest mistake of the year despite Ederson being the world’s most expensive goalkeeper (35 million Pounds Sterling from Benfica) can overcome it. Of these three goalkeepers Ederson looks the best and has for years been in front of both.

It’s a big question why Guardiola is in a hurry to replace Hart when he has not got a proper replacement. At that time Bravo is facing problems will become the second goalkeeper if survive in Barcelona, ​​Blaugrana began to trust more to Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Gabriel Jesus to replace Wilfred Bony / Kalechi Iheancho

Kelechi Iheanacho
Kelechi Iheanacho join Leicester City with a five-year contract duration.
This one is less excited than Bravo who replaced Hart, but Jesus also felt the effects of transformation at Manchester City. For young players in new clubs, transformations tend to make it difficult for them to flourish.

Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic were both given permission to leave Etihad, Wilfred Bony was also given permission to search for a new club despite arriving in January last season. This drastically changed the stability of Manchester City. Soon Iheanacho finally left, joining Leicester City.

Jesus was “forced” to become a major star in Manchester City. Actually last season has seen the impact he gave on City, unfortunately he injured a broken leg in February and had to miss the rest of the season. However, this season his duet with Sergio Aguero is questioned, their start of the season not exactly smooth, 2-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion promotion team, held 1-1 draw Everton and 2-1 win against Bournemotuh. Need to see City’s response against other British giants.

John Stones to replace … Joleon Lescott?

The Stones were bought to replace Nicolas Otamendi or Eliaquim Mangala, but the Englishman basically came to partner Vincent Kompany, replacing Lescott. Sometimes the back-line problems of the City are lost and sometimes not, but by recruiting the Stones it does not solve the problem and the price is high, 50 million Pounds Sterling.

The fact of Guardiola’s doubt on the most expensive defender is, the Stones are reserved when they travel to Bournemouth. He prefers to lose Otamendi and Kompany.

Leroy Sane to replace Nasri

After Guardiola said he was fortunate to have Nasri in April 2016, the Frenchman was loaned out in August.

Nasri seems to have to be removed because he was involved with a doping scandal. Guardiola replaces him with Sane. Start Sane was not smooth, but eventually he began to adapt and offer speed for Guardiola. However, he also did not get full trust from Guardiola, from three Premier League matches he just played 90 minutes (from three matches).

Purchase a full-back this summer

It has been a long time since Manchester City invested in full-back and now Guardiola insists they all need to be replaced. The Citizens finally bring Benjamin Mendy, Danilo and Kyle Walker (total 125.7 million Pounds Sterling). The price tag of the new fullback is certainly a public concern. No matter this their first season at Manchester City, their performances will be directly compared to the price.
