2m 6cm tall Man City plans to recruit FW shock in part 5
Manchester City are preparing a rather shocking bid. Pep Guardiola, who did not usually prefer tall strikers, is aiming to recruit a striker who is more than 2 meters tall this time.
“The Sun” quoted “The Athletic” on the 17th (Korea time) as saying, “Manchester City is keeping an eye on Britain’s tallest striker Kai Hurdlin. “I think a 6-foot-9 striker can help the team,” he said.
Huddlin is a young British striker born in 2002. He plays for the Solihull Moores FC in the English fifth division. He has appeared in 35 games this season, scoring nine goals and four assists, and is drawing attention for his height, which is two meters and six centimeters above all. In terms of height, he is superior to most goalkeepers.
Man City was also impressed by Huddlin’s play. According to the media, Man City dispatched scouts to watch Huddlin’s play video. In addition to Man City, championship teams such as Cardiff City and Middlesbrough are also reportedly competing to recruit.
Huddlin said earlier that his dream was to play in the Champions League. “I’m enjoying my life in Solihull, but it’s not that I don’t want to play in England or the Champions League. “I don’t know how high that level is, but I want to go up to that level.”
Of course, even if a transfer to Manchester City is made, chances are slim that he will play in the first team immediately. “The Athletic” also added, “Even if the transfer to Manchester City is realized, we will have to wait for a promotion to the first division.” It is not an “immediate sense of power” but a recruitment based on the future.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are seeking Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer. Despite Tottenham’s repeated rejection, he will not give up and try to persuade them with England’s highest transfer fee. The transfer fee, known to date, is 150 million pounds (245 billion won).
Manchester City lost 0-1 to Tottenham in the opening game of the 2021-22 season Premier League away at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the 16th. Man City, who felt the absence of a striker due to the defeat, is expected to accelerate the recruitment for the remaining two weeks of the transfer window.
