Man City will try and off-load as many players as possible to fund other signings, claims former City defender Michael Ball.

Following the £100million signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, City might now need to sell some players before looking to acquire elsewhere.

According to manager Pep Guardiola, they have already sold over £40million worth of younger players to contribute towards the Grealish move.

However, they may need to raise more funds to land Tottenham Hotspur’s unsettled star striker, Harry Kane.

City have been leading the race so far for his signature, but Spurs’ hefty price tag for their frontman is stalling the deal from progressing further.

Players like Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez have all been linked with moves away from Manchester. This comes on top of the already departed Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia, Jack Harrison, Angelino and Lukas Nmecha.

On the matter, Michael Ball exclusively told Read Man City: “I feel City would like to try and get as many players out as possible to try and get maybe other deals over the line.

“Pep’s already come out and defended the amount of money they spent on Jack Grealish, with the younger players that they have moved on.”
