Manchester City Players To Be Sold
Manchester City players to be sold? Do you have any guesses for the Manchester City players to be sold?
Check out the Manchester City players to be sold! However, now with even more players about to come in, we must sell and so who are these Manchester City players to be sold?
Manchester City clearly do not have quality in every position, be it in attack or defence. But before Manchester City buy next, they must sell, sell all they can to lighten the squad size. It would not only make the job of the manager and the coaching staff easier but better but would also help the Cityzens to cut down on some expensive wages. So who are the Manchester City players to be sold?
Top 5 Manchester City Players To Be Sold This Summer In 2020
Fernandinho plays as a midfielder and central defender for Manchester City and his contract expires in June 2021. He’s 35 years old right, which is rather old for a footballer. City might not be willing to extend his contract beyond summer 2020, so Fernandinho will be free to move to any club of his choice on a free transfer.
4. Eric Garcia
Man City is willing to let go of the 19 year old centre back as close as this January transfer window. Garcia has confirmed that he won’t be renewing his contract with City once it expires and he will be free to leave the club next summer. Barcelona have their sights set on the young centre back and are trying to secure a move for him this January – but according to us, a summer transfer to the Catalan club seems more likely.
“It is true I have told the club I do not intend to extend my contract beyond 2021. But I will return to Manchester when I am finished on international duty with Spain, and I am focused on next season with City,” confirmed Garcia in September 2020.
3. Benjamin Mendy
Benjamin Mendy is yet another player Manchester City might be interested in getting rid of. His form had been poor for the entirety of the last 2019-20 season, and hasn’t seen much improvement in the 2020-21 campaign. Mendy makes mistakes on the field which can cost City a lot, and he doesn’t have the most top-notch decision-making skills. Pep Guardiola might choose to discard him next season if his form doesn’t improve, but the Man City manager still does have hope for the left back and is giving him fresh chances.
2. John Stones
John Stones has admittedly fallen a bit behind on Pep Guardiola’s radar. He has only appeared for four matches this new 2020-21 season, and in the last season, due to injuries, he appeared only once for City. Stones joined City in 2016, and has gone through seasons of several injuries and weakened form – due to which his confidence has come down.
A couple of years back, Pep Guardiola had said that only when Guardiola would leave, Stones would leave. When asked if that still held true, Guardiola replied in July 2020: On the transfer market [and its issues] we speak at the end of the season,” he said. “[But] I’ve said many times I’m more than delighted with John as a person, as a pro, everything. What I want is the best for him. We’ll speak at the end of the season about what is going to happen.
However, in the City vs Olympiacos Champions League clash on 25th November 2020, John Stones was picked to start instead of Gabriel Jesus. So, maybe the situation might be changing?
1. Sergio Aguero
This one is definitely at the top of the list. With the star striker turning 33 next June, Sergio Aguero has publicly stated that he would like to make a move away from Manchester City next season and move back to Argentina. Aguero has made his desire known to possibly move back to his childhood club Independiente. This would mean that Man City would be losing its top star striker, and City will definitely look to replace him with a new striker. We feel the top options for his replacement will be Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund or Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan.
Further, Manchester City’s chairman, Khaldoon al-Mubarak has stated that the club won’t have any issues if Sergio Aguero was to indeed leave next season.
“We will work it out together and it will be very natural, wherever that is, this year or the year after. It will play out in a comfortable way whatever Sergio decides. We have been very lucky, and it’s a testament to the type of players we have had over the years, to have players like David Silva, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, like Sergio Agüero, that have stuck with the team many years,” said Mubarak.
“They are part of the DNA of the club now and the decision of them to continue or stop, it’s the comfort zone that they have to decide. It was the same way with Vincent. He left when he felt it was right for him to leave and the same thing with David. Sergio is going to be the same,” he added.
