History Makers

The Citizens claimed the 2023/24 Premier League title by beating Arsenal in a close race that dragged on until the final day of the season. They became the first team in English men’s football history to win four top-flight trophies in a row.

Over the past few seasons, City have added a number of crucial players to their ranks. The likes of Erling Haaland, Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez have quickly found their place in Pep Guardiola’s plans.

However, the Citizens have still retained the core elements of their squad, rejecting lucrative offers for some of their experienced stars. As Guardiola’s era at Etihad allegedly draws to an end, the club seems more open to allowing departures this summer.

Latest Updates on Silva, Ederson, and De Bruyne

According to the Times, City have put a £50 million price tag on Silva, with Paris Saint-Germain showing interest in signing the Portuguese winger. Barcelona have been linked with Silva before, but they are unlikely to come forward with an offer due to their financial problems.

Another major exit in City’s squad ‘shake-up’ could be that of De Bruyne, who is linked with a move to Saudi Arabia. The Belgian international is not, however, against discussing a potential contract extension.

Ederson is still two years away from the end of his current deal at Etihad. However, Fabrizio Romano believes the Brazilian goalkeeper could leave if the club receive a suitable offer this summer. Saudi Pro League giants Al-Ittihad are reported to be interested in signing him.

Summer Targets

City have already completed a £43 million move for Brazilian winger Savio from Troyes. The 20-year-old’s arrival will provide more competition for the likes of Jack Grealish and Phil Foden for a starting spot ahead of the next season.

The Citizens are also expected to add a new winger to their ranks in the upcoming transfer window. As long admirers of West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta, City were shocked to find out the 26-year-old is facing serious betting accusations earlier this month. Another target is Bruno Guimaraes, who is reported to have a £100 million release clause in his Newcastle contract.
