    Contracts

    We have 3 players who’s contracts are up at the end of the season.

    David Silva, Fernandinho and Bravo.

    Carson will be off after his loan expires too.

    Merlin should not be replaced. Leave it to Bernardo, Foden and Gundogan to fill that gap which frees up a foreign spot. Fernandinho has been in talks for a new 1 year deal which I’d imagine both parties would jump at the chance to finalise.

    The part that intrigues me the most is the situation with the keepers. Ederson will be our only senior goalie. We have Steffan and Muric out on loan but are they expected to come back and deputise?

    Players That May Leave
    • Otamendi
    • Sane
    Players We’ve Been Linked To

    These are rumours floating about, will update as and when. Won’t include youth prospects.

    GK
    • N/A
    Defence
    • Soyuncu
    • Fry
    • Skriniar
    • Ake
    • Dias
    • JFE
    • Koulibaly
    Midfield
    • Florentino
    • Aouar
    • Fabian Ruiz
    • Bentancur
    • Odegaard
    • Havertz
    • Tonali
    Forwards
    • Häland
    • Martinez
    • Sancho
    • Oyarzabal
    • Coman
    • Dembele

    I do like the sound of Fabian Ruiz and Lynryd Skynyrd - we need a couple of big lads

    Think we'll extend Fernandinho for another year. Merlin and Bravo off on contract expiration. Either Muric or an English GK for the backup slot, David doesn't need replacing as you said. Then a new CB assuming Otamendi is off and potentially a new forward if Sane leaves, though we may not need one.

    Think Florentino, Aouar, Oyerzabal (Sane sold in the summer) will at least come in the summer. And a striker

    Maybe å prospect defender in Januar ala Elvedi

    Think Silva, Bravo, and Otamendi will depart. However, I don’t think there is much waiting in the wings internally to bolster the squad in other areas, so I imagine a busy summer with 4 first-team signings.

    I’d break the bank for Martinez he is gonna be £150 mill player soon if he carries on the way he is going

    Bernardo is our David replacement, but if Sané goes (seriously hope not!) then how about Son from Spurs?

    Aouar is going to replace David, Foden will slowly take over for Kdb

    Foden got a long wait if taking over DeBruyne.

    I think foden and aouar would rotate as neither are a David’s level yet but could see a Rodri, Foden, Aouar midfield post Kevin
