Manchester City is promoting a Korea-Japan tour to introduce new students.
On the 30th (Korean time), ‘City Extra’, which delivers Man City news, posted an interview with Jack Goheon, a reporter who is familiar with Manchester City news and belongs to the Daily Mail, a British media outlet, on SNS on the 30th (스포츠토토Korean time).
Reporter Goheon said, “Man City hopes to show new faces on the pre-season tour of Japan and Korea in July,” adding, “They will be described as the most commercially successful signings in the club’s history.”
“Man City are also committed to new commercial partners as well as improvements.”
Reporter Goheon said in February, “Man City is preparing for a visit to Asia while preparing for the 2023/24 pre-season. We plan to do a summer tour in Japan and Thailand in mid-July.”
However, on the 25th, the Thai media ‘Thairat’ shocked domestic football fans by reporting that “Manchester City and Bayern Munich’s visit to Thailand was almost made, but Korea won the deal and it was canceled.”
Although no official announcement has been made yet, even reporter Koh Heon, who is in charge of Man City news, mentioned the Korean tour, and the possibility that the world-class club Man City will visit Korea is very high.
Fans are guessing who Man City would like to introduce to fans on their Korea-Japan tour.
Man City, a big player in the transfer market, has heated up the transfer market by recruiting famous players such as Elling Hollan, Jack Grealish, and Ruben Dias every year.
Some fans have speculated that Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton) as a candidate for Man City’s recruitment based on this Asian tour, while raising questions about who Man City will be aiming for during the upcoming 2023 summer transfer window.
Mitoma is considered one of the best dribblers in the Premier League right now, despite his debut season in the Premier League, he has performed amazingly.
Because he has excellent skills and can target the Asian market, fans predicted that Mitoma would be the next Manchester City player by commenting on a composite photo of Mitoma wearing a Manchester City uniform.
In fact, Mitoma has recently been intensively discussed as a resource to be reinforced by Manchester City, whose side midfielder is rather weak. Analysts are circulating that Mitoma or Napoli winger Hvica Kvarachhelia will wear Manchester City’s light blue uniform.
Other fans argued that England’s top talent Jude Bellingham (Dortmund) or 2022 Qatar World Cup champion Alexis McAllister (Brighton) could be candidates for Manchester City.
