Former Premier League midfielder has told This Is Futbol that Manchester City do not need Barcelona sensation Ansu Fati.

According to Sport (via TEAMtalk), super-agent Jorge Mendes has offered City the chance to sign the £54m-rated winger.

City signed another attacking player during the summer transfer window in Jack Grealish following his £100m move from Aston Villa.

Do City need Fati?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Prior to signing Grealish, Pep Guardiola already had the likes of Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden to call upon, meaning the Premier League champions are hardly lacking when it comes to that area of the pitch.

Considering that, Palmer does not believe that they should be forking out on someone like Fati. When asked by TIF do City need the 18-year-old, the ex-Leeds player said: “No. I think they need a focal point.”

Indeed, when looking at City’s squad, they need a striker rather than another winger or attacking midfielder.

Following the departure of Sergio Aguero and failed pursuit of Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Gabriel Jesus is City’s only real natural centre-forward.

With all of that in mind, it really would be a surprise if the Citizens ended up going after a player like Fati before signing a new No.9.
