Revealed: See where Manchester City will get £200m to complete 2 huge deals

Manchester City is on the verge of shattering the summer transfer window with 2 deals worth over £200m in the pipeline and about to be completed soon. So far, only 3 signings with fees over £50m have been made this summer with many clubs feeling the effect of the Covid-19-induced financial slump.

The Premier League Champions are in the running to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane and Aston Villa forward, Jack Grealish. Tottenham is reportedly asking for a fee of £160m to allow the England international move on this summer while the Villans want at least £100m for their talisman. Tottenham have rejected an initial bid of £100m with City expected to go back with an improved bid. We will look at how the Citizens are looking to finance these blockbuster deals.

Despite many people's opinions, Manchester is not relying on its owners' wealth to complete deals. They intend to sign both players from money generated within the club. For starters, a whopping TV rights deal ensures that Man City get up to £70m every year in TV revenue. Also, they have made over £35m from the sales of players like Nmecha, Angelino & Harrison. The payment for the £45m sale of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich is also expected to come in this season while Manchester City also got £10m from Borrusia Dortmund for the sale of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United. 

Other means of income for the club include the recent departure of a number of high-earners from the club, freeing up the wage coffers of the club. Players like Sane, Aguero, David Silva and Otamendi are high-earners who have recently left the club. Also, the club did not make any signings during the January transfer window in 2021 in readiness for this summer's splurge. 

Any deal for either of the players will conveniently outdo the £89m paid to Juventus by Manchester United for the transfer of Paul Pogba in 2016. That remains the British record for a player but it looks as though Manchester City are ready to break all the transfer records this summer.
