Manchester City are planning a new spending spree in order to sign a quality long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, MySportDab reports.
MySportDab understands the Citizens are targeting Tottenham Striker Harry Kane and PSG Star Kylian Mbappe.
City Coach Pep Guardiola has a tough task in his attempt to replace ageing Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine is approaching the final years of his career, and will go into the final year of his contract next campaign.
Manchester City only have one backup striker in Gabriel Jesus, and hierarchy at the Etihad are concerned over whether he can be a long-term replacement for Aguero.
Pep Guardiola previously stated that the striker was irreplaceable, and the 31-year-old is now expected to return to Argentina next summer.
Despite reports linking Manchester City with Lionel Messi, they are unlikely to make a bid for the Barcelona forward.
Speaking on Friday, Guardiola revealed he wanted to see Lionel Messi stay at the Nou Camp.
Instead, City officials have a list of big-name targets in mind, as Guardiola knows he will need to splash the cash to bring in a top-quality forward.
According to the Daily Mirror, Kane, Mbappe and Lautaro Martinez are all on his shopping list.
MySportDab understands City will spend big next summer once Aguero’s contract expires.
French megastar Mbappe is still under contract at Paris Saint-Germain until 2022, and is considered to be one of the best footballers in the world.
But when Aguero’s contract expires, Mbappe will be entering into the final year of his PSG contract, meaning it is possible that he will notify PSG of his intentions to leave.
Mbappe has made it clearly recently his desire to leave Ligue 1, after he saying he wanted to try a new challenge last year.
Earlier this month, Mbappe was involved in a Bust-up wwith Coach Thomas Tuchel on the touchline at the Parc des Princes after being substituted against Montpellier.
Kane will be a better replacement compared to Mpappe
