Manchester City might be reportedly selling seven of the players from their current squad. The players include Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan and recently, Sergio Aguero, who joined Barcelona.
Despite a spectacular season, Gundogan may be leaving the Etihad Stadium and like the others, he might end up in Italy or Spain next season. The Sky Blues are looking to raise money at least £70 million through these transfer deals.
Manchester City are expecting a big-money transfer involving Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. But, for the transfer to happen, the six players may have to follow what Aguero chose by leaving Manchester City.
Selling Seven or Eight and buying two or three players would be worth thinking for Manchester City
According to The Daily Mail, many of the key players from the current League winners might be looking for a new challenge. Raheem Sterling, known as the “Little Wriggler” has been impressive during his move to Manchester City after few stints at Liverpool and Chelsea. However, he had missed a lot of golden opportunities whenever it was a must-win match for them.
Gabriel Jesus had also been struggling as the centre-forward and thus, they opted for veteran, Aguero to be played at times instead of him. However, since the Argentine moved to Barca, it would get difficult for him to be a clinical striker. And with the rumours arising of Harry Kane’s possible move towards the club, there would be lack of playing time.
Riyad Mahrez made a big-money move from Leicester City to Manchester City but couldn’t recreate the class at the Foxes. But, the new club would be highly benefitted by his presence.
Ilkay Gundogan had been one of the phenomenal players in the comeback of the club. They were at 13th place in the first half of the Premier League. He was also a key player in their Champions League matches and also set up a new record for himself.
The Portuguese pair of Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo may also be unfortunately leaving the club as per Birmingham Mail. The former lacked playing time whereas the latter was underperforming at his proposed role as a right back.
Thus, it would be sufficient funds for the club to make a deal for Grealish and England skipper, Kane. The latter player had already expressed his wish to move to a different club. He had not at all won any trophies with Tottenham Hotspur.
