June 23 – Goalkeeper moves involving Steffen, Stefan
Germany goalkeeper Stefan Ortega could become Manchester City’s No.2 keeper if Zack Steffen finds a transfer destination to his liking, according to Sky Sports.
Ortega, 29, has spent much of his career with Arminia Bielefeld, who were relegated to the 2.Bundesliga this season.
Steffen, meanwhile, may want to pursue a No.1 shirt this summer as Ederson is not at risk of losing his to Man City anytime soon and the USMNT backstop has engaged in a battle with Matt. Turner to start the 2022 World Cup.
The 27-year-old American cost City around $7-8million in 2019 on his second trip abroad. He was previously on the books of Freiburg and Columbus Crew, and played on loan at City’s Fortuna Dusseldorf in the 2019-20 season (although Fortuna were relegated).
Steffen signed a contract extension until the 2024-25 season, and Guardiola backed the USMNT man after a tough FA Cup semi-final. But walking away makes sense, and maybe a loan could also do the trick? (NM).
The deal depends on Zack Steffen finding a good solution in the market, but Ortega is waiting for City.

Raheem Sterling is considering both short-term (2022 World Cup) and long-term (the second half of his club career) plans to leave Manchester City this summer. There is interest in the Premier League (Chelsea), but the 27-year-old England international has equally if not more attractive options abroad with Real Madrid. would have heighten their interest.

June 10 – Gabriel Jesus wants to move to the Premier League
According to Fabrizio Romano, Gabriel Jesus wants to move to another Premier League side. He has been linked with Arsenal, while Tottenham are also said to be interested. With the arrival of Erling Haaland (see below), Jesus won’t be first choice at City and he’s been very good, consistently, over the past five years. However, the 25-year-old is said to be the main man at Arsenal and that surely appeals to him rather than signing for another club where he is the backup striker, as he was at City after being in the shadow of Sergio. Agüero season after season.
Gabriel Jesus is going to join a Premier League club this summer – not Real Madrid, as explained two days ago. More to follow soon. ⏳🇧🇷 #MCFC
Gabriel will leave Man City for sure, no changes are expected. ⤵️ https://t.co/95u6gpqMRc

June 10 – Erling Haaland is on his way
The journey continues, as Erling Haaland posts a picture of himself wearing a Man City shirt as a child ahead of his move to City which will end on July 1. Previously, City had agreed a fee with Borussia Dortmund for his signature and it is believed that personal terms with Haaland would not be an issue to negotiate. It seems everything is settled now. Erling’s father, Alf-Inge, played for Man City and Haaland will follow in his father’s footsteps by playing for the Premier League. However, this Haaland will be spearheading City’s attack rather than mopping up in midfield. (JPW)

June 7 – Man City want $63m from Newcastle for Nathan Ake
Newcastle United are expected to make a move for Manchester City centre-back Nathan Ake this summer, but the Dutchman won’t come cheap. Man City intend to recoup the full $52m they paid for him two summers ago – plus a small profit on top. (EA)
June 2 – Marc Cucurella at Man City
He may have been Brighton and Hove Albion’s signing of the season, but will Marc Cucurella’s stay at the Amex Stadium be limited to one campaign? Spanish release El Desmarque says a deal to bring the former Barcelona left back to the Etihad Stadium. City need help there with Benjamin Mendy in serious legal trouble and Oleksandr Zinchenko ready to find a new home. Cucurella has been fantastic in the Premier League and will likely have grown up admiring Barca hero Pep Guardiola. For $40m that makes sense as Brighton would back down on the job but could use a profit of over $20m to reinvest in the job (or find that centre-forward/finisher to take their attack to the next level) .
