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 ?

Aouar
Ait-Nouri
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.

Are we signing Carson permanetly?
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
