Is this the week that the Josko Gvardiol transfer saga reaches its conclusion?

The DFB Pokal winners have set a deadline of the start of the new season for negotiations to be concluded as reported by Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail.

With the champions arriving back in Manchester overnight from their pre-season tour of Japan and Korea, attention will shift quickly to what comes this week.

One of the pressing matters will be the treble winners concluding the deal for the Croatian international.

Fabrizio Romano reported on his YouTube channel that the two teams will continue negotiations this week to conclude the deal. He further adds that City will look for a new winger once negotiations for Gvardiol are complete.

As preparations ramp up for the new season, the champions will be keen to secure the deal for Josko Gvardiol. Getting the defender in and settled before the new season starts will be seen as a priority by Manchester City.

With the new season just around the corner, the potential of the champions securing Pep Guardiola’s major transfer target would be a boost for the club.

A conclusion to the Josko Gvardiol transfer saga would allow Manchester City to secure one of their major transfer targets. It would also allow the club to shift attention to any other possible incoming deals before the window closes.
