From England they point out that, after having lost the Champions League final against Chelsea, in the upper echelons of Manchester City they intend to carry out a deep reconstruction of the squad to achieve, once and for all, be crowned European champions next year, something that the Citizen set has never achieved in its more than 140 years of history.
Before the very final in Porto, ‘Sportsmail’ had already placed Raheem Sterling (26 years old) and Riyad Mahrez (30) on the starting ramp regardless of the result. The former, despite being a starter at Do Dragao, has been relegated to a secondary role for much of the season, while the sale of the Algerian would be considered by the City owners if an adequate offer arrives despite his great performance in recent months.
Bernardo Silva, in the shop window
And once the defeat against the ‘blues’, kings of Europe for the second time in its history, is the name of Bernardo Silva (26) that sounds to leave the discipline of Manchester City this summer. According to ‘Telegraph’, several clubs in Spain, France and Italy would be interested in acquiring the services of the versatile Portuguese midfielder, with a contract until June 2025.
The great objective of the ‘skyblue’ this summer is to gain a crack at the attack point that supplants the march of Kun Agüero, the entity’s historical top scorer, to FC Barcelona. Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund), Romelu Lukaku (Inter) and especially Harry Kane (Tottenham) are the strikers who have sounded the most so far to put themselves under Pep Guardiola's orders from next season.
