Very true, but I'd imagine a striker would have been their number 1 target, given they seem to be so strong everywhere else. So, to get Grealish was an interesting move. He fits well to how they play, but they have an abundance of talent in those areas, I'd have thought they'd get a striker above all else. Maybe they felt they could get Grealish AND a striker, so just bit the bullet and got Grealish while they could. Although, in hindsight, if they hadn't spent £100m on Grealish, would they have been able to offer a fee for Kane that Spurs could not refuse? Man City with Kane would probably have been a much more frightening prospect that Man City with just one more excellent midfielder on their squad that they can rotate in and out of the 1st 11.
But that isnt City's modus operandi, is it?
