    i think our major summer business will be:

    A CB to replace Otamendi.
    Midfielder to replace David Silva: Fabian Ruiz?
    And a forward/winger to replace Sane (if he leaves)

    I would add to that a striker and a left back if Mendy will not prove that he can play on high level/intensity for a long period of time.

    Nope. Look at the injury crisis we are suffering from now. Rodri is out and Fernandinho is basically becoming a CB. A midfielder like Ruiz, who can basically play anywhere in midfield (like Gundogan), will prove useful.

    I don't think Pep sees Foden as someone who needs less competition to get game time. It's all about Foden's ability to perform at a high level.

    Thats my view, at least.

    Just put in Auoar that is discribet as Iniesta type player, then i agree. Fabian will most likely go to spain and replace Modric. Marc Roca maybe?

    My future Midtfield
    Rodri/Florentino/Fernandinho(Gundogan)
    DeBryune/Gundogan - Auoar/Foden

    2020/21

    Bernardo Silva will most likely be transitioning to midfield when David leaves.

    We need to remember that in order to bring in an overseas player we also need to release one, Merlin is going so that frees up one spot and i would imagine Bravo will go.

    So that is two positions, if Sane goes then we have three, if Otto goes then we have 4.

    I can't think of an home grown keeper who fits our needs nor a left winger if Sane were to leave so I guess that means only two overseas positions available.

    Foden replacing Merlin is an excellent move for us as it gives us more freedom in our recruitment.

    As others have said Phil will replace Dave, Muric will replace Bravo
    If Braff is as good as people are saying then I can see him replacing Leroy
    If Otamendi goes we will buy another DM as the four centre backs next year will be Laporte, Stones, Rodri and Garcia
