Two Players That Could Be Shown The Man City Door This Summer

If Man City do retain the Premier League title next weekend, Pep Guardiola won’t allow complacency to settle into the squad.

With the need to constantly improve in a league that never sits still, the Spanish manager is always looking for perfection and after such a quiet transfer window last summer, they’ll be no doubt a little turnaround at the Etihad Stadium.

The Manchester City are arguably one of the best teams in the world at the moment, and with such a strong squad there is always going to be huge competition to stay in the squad.

With the summer transfer market approaching, there is likely to be a lot of movement at the top clubs and these are two players I, as a City fan, wouldn’t be mourning the loss off.

Riyad Mahrez

Quite frankly, I would not like to compete with the likes of Aguero or Sterling for game time. There is no doubting that this is one of the strongest forward lines in football at the moment, if not the strongest.

However, I feel Mahrez just isn’t quite up to the standard of the others on the line-up, and I feel that there are other players that City could look to acquire that would further push him down the rankings

Phil Foden

What? I hear you say, he’s one of our own! I agree. However, if anyone needs to go on loan it’s going Foden. I feel in his limited game time at the club his improvement has been enormous, but while there are huge benefits to training with the likes of some of the best in the world there is nothing like game time to hone a players skills.

A player of his talent would be first team material at several Premier League clubs and, a season elsewhere could be the making of a brilliant young player.

  • I agree with you on the Mahrez issue. Foden is slightly different, I think given more game time, he would progress naturally and why should he move on loan to play with ‘inferior’ players to justify playing him? There have been times when he could and should have played especially with David Silva struggling for form and the absence of KDB. Tonight is such an occasion, verses Leicester he could create chaos in their back four. Outgoing: Mahrez, Mangala, Delph. Possibly Gundogan, Sane and Danillo (manager/contract dependent!!)

    I sometimes wonder whether writers like yourself know anything about football and City in particular. Foden is going nowhere. His game time still increase. He is only 18 and has 14 or more years ahead of him. City is the best and only place for him.
