The complete 2022 summer transfer window for Man City as Blues record £60m profit

Manchester City has recorded an amazing profit after spending over £100 million on new players during one of their busiest transfer windows in recent history.

Erling Haaland is the marquee signing, and his £51 million release clause from Borussia Dortmund was the first to be disclosed this summer.

Kalvin Phillips arrived from Leeds to bolster the midfield following Fernandinho’s departure, while City also added goalkeeper Stefan Ortega, left-back Sergio Gomez, and deadline-day addition Manuel Akanji to their roster.

The high-profile sales of Raheem Sterling to Chelsea and Gabriel Jesus and Aleks Zinchenko to Arsenal have facilitated these additions.

These transactions, together with almost £30 million in sales from the academy and additional fees from sales of City Football Group players, resulted in an astonishing £60 million profit for the Blues this summer.

Man City’s summer 2022 signings

Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) £51.1m

Haaland gushed about his new club when he was presented in June, stating“There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep is one of the greatest managers of all-time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil my ambitions.

“I want to score goals, win trophies and improve as a footballer and I am confident I can do that here.”

Kalvin Phillips (Leeds) £42m

Phillips signed a contract in July and mirrored the sentiments of City’s other summer additions, stating, “To be able to play under Pep and learn from him and his coaching staff as well as be part of such a fantastic squad is a prospect that I am incredibly excited about.

“City are a world-class club with world-class staff and facilities and it’s a dream come true to have joined the club.”

Manuel Akanji (Borussia Dortmund) £15.1m

Akanji, who signed a five-year contract at the Etihad after 158 appearances for Dortmund, expressed his eagerness to join Pep Guardiola’s squad.

“I am delighted to be here and can’t wait to get started. City have been one of the best teams in Europe over the last few seasons. Pep Guardiola is an exceptional manager and this is an exceptional squad of players, so this is an exciting opportunity for me.”

Sergio Gomez (Anderlecht) £11m

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain stated of Gomez, “Over the past year, he has gained excellent experience playing in the Belgian League and in Europe with Anderlecht.

“We’re sure that he will bring additional quality to our squad both in defence and going forward and that he will only continue to develop and improve playing under Pep and his coaches.”

Stefan Ortega (Arminia Bielefeld) free

Ortega, who started all but one Bundesliga match for Arminia Bielefeld last season, stated that he could not pass up the opportunity to join City.

“This is a fantastic move for me,” he said. “Manchester City are an amazing team – a squad with world-class quality in every area. To be given the chance to join this group of players and help continue the club’s success is a dream for me.”
