City have made their money in the window though with the sales of Harvey Barnes and James Maddison to Newcastle United and Tottenham, with hundreds and thousands of pounds a week saved as well on the departures of Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Ayoze Perez and Jonny Evans on free transfers.

With the likes of Wilfred Ndidi, Patson Daka, Kelechi Iheanacho and Timothy Castagne being linked with moves away still as well, there could be even more money for Maresca and the recruitment team to play with as the September 1 deadline approaches, with a deal agreed for Galatasaray’s Yunus Akgun and a move in the works for Sporting CP youngster Abdul Fatawu Issahaku.
