Man City transfers: Citizens rule out moves for Falcao and Neymar
Man City transfers: Citizens chief executive Ferran Soriano rules out moves for Radamel Falcao and Neymar in the summer
Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano has ruled out moves for Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao and Santos forward Neymar this summer.
The Citizens, who are currently without a manager following Roberto Mancini’s sacking, were believed to be competing with Chelsea and Manchester United for Falcao’s signature.
The one-time Premier League champions were also reported to be interested in Brazil youngster Neymar, but Soriano says City aren’t weighing up moves for either of the forwards.
“Neymar and Falcao? [These reports are] false, they have never been on our agenda,” Soriano told Tuttomercatoweb.com.
With City failing to mount a successful defence of their Premier League crown, the Citizens are expected to strengthen their squad in the summer, while showing bit-part squad members the exit door.
However, Soriano moved to rubbish reports City striker Sergio Aguero could leave the Eastlands outfit for Real Madrid at the end of the season.
“The first thing I want to emphasise is that we have never thought of selling Aguero. El Kun will be happy to stay with us this year,” Soriano added.
