Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has confirmed the club will sign more players this summer despite already signing Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

Alvarez was signed from River Plate in January but loaned straight back to the Argentinian club and will arrive in Manchester this summer while Haaland’s arrival from Borussia Dortmund is surely the biggest signing of the summer.

“I can confirm that there will be more players coming in,” the chairman told the club’s official website.

“We are looking to strengthen the team in the areas that we need strengthening, and every season some players leave and we have to continually refresh the team.

“I think we’ve made two very important additions already but I anticipate we will be doing a couple more.”

“We have, in Haaland, arguably the best number nine in the world at the right age,” he added.

“When you look at the next 10-15 years we have invested, in Haaland, in that striker for the future.

“He is a very, very unique, incredibly talented striker that I think the whole world has been looking at. I would say every big team in the world wanted Haaland to join and we are absolutely delighted Haaland chose to join Manchester City.

“For us, it’s a super decision. We are getting, truly, a phenomenal player. He will fit very nicely with the group.”
