Man City chairman Khaldoon: We'll seek to refresh squad


 Manchester City will make "a couple more" additions to Pep Guardiola's squad this summer, according to chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.

Despite winning a fourth Premier League title in five seasons, City have paid £51.2m to bring in 21-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

In addition, they have spent £14.1m on Argentina forward Julian Alvarez, 22.

But Mubarak, speaking to City's website, said: "We are looking to strengthen areas we need to strengthen.

"Every season some players leave and we have to refresh. We will be doing a couple more. We will try to go as fast as we can but it is not always entirely in our control."

Following club captain Fernandinho's departure, it is understood City are targeting Leeds' England midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

However, any move for the 26-year-old will be harder now Leeds have retained their top-flight status.

Guardiola also has a long-standing desire to bring in another left-back, with Brighton's Marc Cucurella, 23, thought to be high on that list.
