It’s that time of the year when managers decide who will join their club and who will be told to find new pastures, so I welcome you all to the Summer Transfer Window.
While Pep Guardiola is already looking for new faces to bring in this summer as City look forward to defending their League Title, and this has stirred up a possibility for multiple departures at the club.
So let’s have a closer look at the 3 players who are likely to move away from the Etihad this summer as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
The most obvious candidate to leave this summer is Benjamin Mendy. This rumor comes from the territory that Joao Cancelo who has started as a left back few times this season and Zinchenko both has topped Mendy in the pecking order. Also, He couldn’t live up to his £52M transfer fee from Monaco as his performances were below par this season.
“My injuries this year have been frustrating and without fans it has not been the same but we are looking forward to next season where we will work even harder,” Ake said this week, hinting that he’s preparing to play for the Blues next term.
While Cityzens are rejoicing about the in-form defensive partnership of Dias and Stones, Nathan Ake has been a Victim of this. So he may look for new pastures this summer for more playing time and is linked with a move away from the Club.
Sterling’s own lofty standards have been used against him this season, as he’s failed to reproduce the world-class form of years gone, but he’s still contributed greatly to this side and undoubtedly shouldn’t be disregarded after one ‘normal’ campaign.
Sterling is unlikely to leave this summer from the Etihad but with reports suggesting Man City may sanction an exit for him if an offer comes around £80M has let clubs around Europe set their Eyes on him.
