Manchester City set for huge windfall from sale of fringe squad players
Manchester City are in line to raise around £100 million (€117m) through transfer deals this summer before the potential sale of any senior players.
The Premier League champions are about to take their close-season transfer income past the £50 million mark with academy graduate Lukas Nmecha closing in on an £11.2 million move to Wolfsburg.
City have already sold Jack Harrison (£13 million) and Angelino (£16 million) to Leeds United and RB Leipzig respectively this summer and netted £11.2 million in sell-on fees and solidarity payments from their former winger Jadon Sancho’s £ 72.9 million move to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund.
But City stand to double that £ 50 million before the transfer window closes at the end of next month even if no one leaves Pep Guardiola’s established first-team squad.
Midfielders Yangel Herrera, Ivan Ilic and Morgan Rogers and defender Pedro Porro could all be sold this summer in deals that could fetch an additional £50 million. Former England Under-20 winger, Patrick Roberts, 24, may also depart.
