    Been thinking about what our squad will look like based on the various rumours etc

    Goalkeeper 3
    Ederson
    Steffan
    Carson HG AT

    Full back 3
    Mandy
    Walker HG AT
    Cancelo

    Centre back 5
    Laporte
    Koulibaly
    Ake HG AT
    Fernandinho
    Harwood Bellis HG CT

    Defensive mid 2
    Rodri
    Gundogan

    Attacking mid 3
    De Bruyne
    Foden HG CT
    Bernardo

    Wingers 3
    Mahrez
    Sterling HG AT
    Torres

    Strikers 2
    Jesus
    Aguero

    Looking at this, we are short of a full back and attacking mid - I have assumed Zinchenko is going to be sold but he may stay as backup to those two positions ?

    I’m also assuming stones, Garcia and Otamendi will go

    is this enough to get our title back ? I would prefer us to sign a specialist for the full back and midfield but who would be the names for these posItions ?

    Rumours of a false nine type player would also make sense as Sergio is off after next season , this would provide cover for the midfield as well ?

    Wouldn't rule out Sandler coming back into the fold if Garcia leaves/makes himself unavailable, and maybe Luiz back from Villa.
    No idea how the HG balance works.

    GKs: Ederson, Steffen, Carson

    RBs: Walker, Cancelo

    CBs: Laporte, Koulibaly, Aké, García

    LBs: Mendy, Zinchenko/New LB

    DMs: Rodri, Fernandinho, Gündogan

    AMs: de Bruyne, Bernardo, Foden, Doyle

    FWs: Sterling, Mahrez, Torres, Braaf

    STs: Agüero, Jesus, Delap

    Rayan Aït-Nouri, Ben Chilwell, David Alaba would all be improvements on Zinchenko.
    Tagliafico, Telles, Digne would also be quality signings however have yet to be linked with the club this summer. This would also leave space for an additional signing, perhaps Aouar, Rosa, Camavinga or Lautaro Martinez.

    I believe he is out of contract so I don’t see why we wouldn’t. However he may not and we may use an academy keeper as third choice, possibly Muric or Grimshaw.

    Won't be Grimshaw, expected to leave considering he's been on loan at Hemel Hempstead...
    Muric I'd expect another loan if not 2nd choice.
    Bazunu I'd say will be 3rd choice if Carson doesn't come back

    On his last two showings, Cancelo looks like he could be a reliable option on both sides of defence. Aké can also play at LB and DM.
