Manchester City have been linked with moves for the likes of Jack Grealish and Harry Kane as Pep Guardiola’s side look to defend their Premier League crown next season
The Citizens claimed the Premier League title for the third time in four seasons, as well as winning the Carabao Cup for the fourth year in succession.
There was disappointment for Pep Guardiola’s side in the Champions League, however, after suffering defeat to Chelsea in the final of the competition.
Harry Kane and Jack Grealish are among the names to have been linked with a summer switch to the Etihad Stadium, as City look to maintain their dominance.
With that in mind, Mirror Sport have rounded up the latest transfer rumours concerning the Sky Blues…
City sent James warning
Chelsea have informed Manchester City that full-back Reece James is not for sale this summer.
The Athletic recently reported that Pep Guardiola’s side are eyeing a move for the young defender, though this is a deal that now seems unlikely to take place.

The Citizens will turn their attention to deals for Harry Kane and Jack Grealish once Euro 2020 has reached its conclusion.
Guardiola’s side have been linked with £100m moves for both players, who are currently representing England at the major tournament.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Kane and Grealish are considered ‘top targets’ but no breakthroughs will be made while they’re focused on Euro 2020.
City prepared to walk away from Kane deal
On the subject of Kane, the Manchester Evening News have claimed that City could turn their back on a deal for the Spurs striker.
The prolific forward is in high demand this summer, though Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not willing to let his star man leave.
City are understood to have made a £100m offer for the 27-year-old and the MEN have reported that Guardiola’s side will walk away from a deal unless Spurs keep their price expectations realistic.
City are not prepared to be held to ransom, especially due to financial fair play rules and a strict budget this summer.
Spurs are believed to be looking for a fee close to the £150m mark as they look to keep Kane at the club.
