​Manchester City Chief Al Mubarak promises more signings for the club

Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak believes the club will make more signings.

The Citizens have secured Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres, and are looking at another centre-half.

Houssem Aouar from Lyon is another possibility, and Al Mubarak says the Sky Blues are continuing to focus on signing young talent.

"You have to take that into consideration and that's part of that sensibility approach that we have to take but at the same time, my position is clear - we don't take a one-year view, we take a three-, five-, ten-year view and when we look at what changes or improvements we have to make for this squad, we're going to make them," Al Mubarak said, as reported by Manchester Evening News.

"We're going to make them and we'll be sensible and pragmatic about it but we will do what it takes.

"I think you've seen when it comes to the two acquisitions we have made, Ake and Ferran Torres, we moved quickly, we knew the players clearly, these were our targets and when the opportunity came, we were able to come in very quickly and swiftly and do that business.

"There are additional players we will be bringing in and we will stick to the plan obviously within the realities of the market that we live in today."

He added: "If you look at the acquisitions we have made over the past couple of years, there's a consistency in the type of player we have targeted in terms of age and quality.

"So we will continue down that road. The age bracket, we are always looking at it as a priority for the first team, in that 20- to 25-year-old category - that's kind of the spot that we like."
