Man City should sell four players in the summer transfer window

Man City should sell four players in the summer transfer window

Manchester City supporters believe the club should sell four players this summer and that doesn’t include the outbound Ilkay Gundogan.

City are still just over two weeks removed from making history by becoming just the second English team to win the treble after they defeated Inter in the Champions League final. However, attention has already turned to the forthcoming campaign as Pep Guardiola prepares to do it all again.

The Blues are closing in on their first signing of the summer with Mateo Kovacic set to be announced this week. City will pay an initial £25million to Chelsea, which could rise by a further £5million, to bring in the classy Croatian.

Though the club don’t see him as a direct replacement and still want to sign another midfielder, Kovacic arrives at the Etihad as captain Gundogan departs. The German was instrumental in City’s remarkable success last season – as well as all of their trophy triumphs under Guardiola – but has decided to leave upon the expiration of his contract and join Barcelona on a free transfer.

Guardiola and every supporter were desperate for Gundogan to stay and he will take some replacing. City have gotten used to waving goodbye to legends – with Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho all leaving in recent years – but none of them were still as important to the team as Gundogan.

As a result, it looks like it could be yet another summer of change at City as supporters want to see four other players depart. MEN Sport asked readers to give their verdict on each member of the senior squad and vote on whether they should be kept or sold. If less than 50 per cent of voters wanted a player to remain at the club, they would slip into the sell column.

Joao Cancelo finished at the bottom of the list with only 22 per cent of voters wanting him to stay at the club. The Portuguese was excellent for years and regarded as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League but a sudden breakdown in his relationship with Guardiola saw him depart for Bayern Munich on loan in January.
