Manchester City began their summer rebuild by releasing five players (Pablo Zabaleta, Willy Caballero, Bacary Sagna, Gaël Clichy and Jesús Navas) and signing Bernardo Silva from Monaco. But the transfers won't stop there.

According to multiple reports, the Sky Blues could announce three more signings over the next few weeks. Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur has been linked for months now, and a deal for the English international is now very close. City plan to double Walker's wages in order to convince him to join, according to the Independent.

The same report claims that City are moving quickly to sign AS Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy, who along with Bernardo Silva was one of the biggest stars of Monaco's amazing season. Mendy is a powerful left-back with amazing defensive skills and a knack for making forward runs, and he could be the answer to City's problems in the position following Clichy's departure.

Another City signing lined up for next week is Benfica goalkeeper Éderson Moraes, who's one of the best young keepers in Europe. The Brazilian has agreed to a move to the Etihad and the Citizens have secured a £35 million deal with the Portuguese club. Éderson is a Brazil international and will replace Willy Caballero, with Claudio Bravo staying as the backup goalkeeper.

City are moving quickly, and four signings could be confirmed before the transfer window is even opened. Pep Guardiola is not messing around, that's for sure.
