Manchester City are set to make some changes to their squad as the Cityzens came perilously close to winning the UEFA Champions League before narrowly falling short in Porto.
The Premier League champions have had a good season despite the FA Cup and UCL disappointments and nothing can take that away. Having said that, Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak hinted at a squad overhaul this summer, and manager Pep Guardiola is likely to be backed in the market this summer.

It is understood that several of Manchester City’s regular starters have been put up for sale. The likes of Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, and Riyad Mahrez, as per some reports are said to be on their way out this summer.
Todofichajes understands that Bernardo Silva is close to finding himself playing for Atletico Madrid next season as the newly-crowned La Liga champions are ready to make a move for the attacking midfielder from Portugal.
Silva, 26, has had a disappointing season by his standards and could be a part of the reshuffle that is set to take place.
It is understood that a fee in the range of €70 million would be demanded by the Sky Blues for the completion of the deal that is said to be complicated. However, Fichajes reports that the Rojiblancos could get the sum down to €50 million.
Having said that, City have been linked with Renan Lodi in the past and the left-back could come in as a part of the deal at some point but it is highly unlikely though.
City have been linked with the likes of Jack Grealish and Harry Kane this summer and to bring in the Englishmen, City will need to sell before they can buy. Harry Kane is expected to cost around £150 million while Grealish is set to cost around £100 million.
With a very exciting summer window looming, should City rebuild their squad or trust the resources that they currently have?
Let us know.
