Pep Guardiola has been on a mini spending spree this summer with Man City bringing in a couple of new faces.
The back to back Premier League Champions have added a sprinkle of freshness in this summer transfer window. Which will be much needed as they aim to go for three titles in a row.
It all kicks off on August 10th against West Ham United. The Football Manc Cave takes a stab at the starting line up come 12:30…
Ederson is the obvious choice of ‘keeper but then it gets tricky. With Vincent Kompany’s departure at the end of last season, Man City have been on the lookout for a replacement so choosing the back four was a little difficult. However, I’ve gone with Kyle Walker, John Stones, Laporte and new signing, Angelino. Who has only just signed to the Manchester side again after spending some of his youth at the club.
Guardiola has a list of players to choose from when it comes to his midfield. Following his recent record-breaking signing, Rodri, it didn’t make the choices any easier. So Bernando Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva all should be able to help Rodri fit right into that midfield line up.
I have then gone with Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling because, why wouldn’t you? That was probably the easiest part of the pick.
David Silva has stated how this may be his last season with the Manchester side so he has to be a big part of this squad. Not only will fans want to see him have an amazing climax with the club, but I’m also sure people are hoping that Rodri could learn a lot from him enough to fill his shoes.
I’ve generated this team with real-time signings. However, this transfer window has been no stranger to twists and turns as Pep’s team have been looking at players such as Joao Cancelo and Harry Maguire too. If any more signings do happen for the Manchester City, I’m sure this starting eleven will shift again although, for the time being, there are players like Delph and Zinchenko who can be back up plans.
