Speaking in Friday’s pre-match press conference ahead of the clash with Bournemouth, the City boss said that Gomez will remain with the first team once his transfer is confirmed.
That would bring the club’s summer arrivals up to five, along with Stefan Ortega Moreno, Kalvin Phillips, Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, although the latter’s signing was actually confirmed in January.
But Guardiola is not expecting further additions before the market closes. “Forget about it,” he responded when asked if there would be more incomings.
“No, I’m very very pleased [with the team]. Not much in terms of numbers but there is incredible versatility in this team and a huge quality – even the young academy lads. The quality is there, it’s just [they have to] push each other to another step this season. If nobody moves, nobody leaves, I think nobody’s coming in.”
Sergio Gomez looks set to be Man City’s final signing of the 2022 summer transfer window.
The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
“Makes sense. Let’s go. Two LB. Two RB. Four CB. Five MF. Four wingers. Two strikers. .”
“Having a hard time believing this. I Think we Can still get Lodi for a great Price. We just also need to Keep Bernardo then.”
“10/10 window. Got really good money for 3 subs and a few academy lads and paid really cheap for top quality signings, including THE signing of the window in Haaland.”
“9/10 if nothing else happens.”
“Great window! lets go.”
“10/10 if Bernardo stays , 7/10 If Bernardo Leave.”
“keep Bernardo and it’s an 11/10 window.”
“If Bernardo stays i’d say it’s a 9/10 window. Wanted another LB except Gomez but i trust in Pep.”
