Lukas Nmecha reveals he is leaving Manchester City for Wolfsburg as Pep Guardiola ‘gets a new top striker’… amid rumors of transfers for Harry Kane and Erling Haaland
- Manchester City lost Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus is also linked with moves
- Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are big standout targets for Pep Guardiola’s side
- Lukas Nmecha has been with the club since 2007, but eventually left for Wolfsburg
- The attacker said the opportunities will be limited with a new big name coming in
According to Lukas Nmecha, who revealed he has left the club after realizing his chances would be crushed by a new star frontman, a big signing is coming to Manchester City.
It’s been a big summer for the Citizens after the loss of a true Etihad icon in Sergio Agüero, to Barcelona, this summer. Now they are looking for the successor to a man who scored 260 goals in sky blue.
Borussia Dortmund’s 21-year-old prolific powerhouse Erling Haaland and England skipper Harry Kane are favorites to join as Pep Guardiola’s go-to man at the top.

Nmecha has been with City since he was eight and after four loan spells he had hoped that Agüero’s departure would give him a golden opportunity. However, the former England and Germany under-21 has realized there is no point in lingering.
“I still had a one-year contract,” Nmecha told Kicker after signing a £11million transfer to Wolfsburg.
“They’re getting another top striker, I don’t think my chances would have been very good there.”
Nmecha spent the 2019-20 season at Wolfsburg, but despite only making a handful of appearances, he was clearly impressed. His brother Felix has also made the switch.

Haaland would be a great asset to City but Dortmund are determined to keep him
City fans will be delighted at the suggestion of a big move in the transfer window this summer, with Guardiola signing a goalscorer for their title defense.
The champions will have to battle Chelsea for Haaland, with the Blues already turning down a bid amid a chase from the Norwegian sensation.
Dortmund are determined to hold on to Haaland for one more season before activating his £64million bargain in 12 months. It will take a huge effort to seduce the Germans, something City is capable of.
Kane will also be hard to get rid of from Tottenham after new boss Nuno Espirito Santo defiantly insisted the deadly finisher was not for sale during his first press conference in the N17 hot seat.
