Pep Guardiola has never been the manager who liked to save money, and he’s not becoming one now either: let’s see how he will re-build a new Man City squad for the next season!
Online betting news in the UK didn’t start spreading the rumours about Pep leaving Man City upon his Champions League elimination by AS Monaco. Instead, they started rumouring about Pep’s safe and secure place at the helm of the Citizens and about his absolute power to rebuild a whole new Man City squad. So let’s take a look at which players are about to leave Manchester City?
Which players will be leaving Manchester City?
Seven players are in the biggest danger of being forced to leave Manchester City, they are the following: Yaya Touré, Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, Bacary Sagna, Willy Caballero and Tosin Adarabiyo. Theis contracts are expiring at the end of the season and upon building a new Man City squad, it doesn’t seem likely that Pep would like to offer them a new one.
However, there are many other players who might be leaving Man City at the end of the season. It’s obvious that Pep won’t think of the players out on loan as the most important members of his squad. They are Joe Hart, Samir Nasri, Eliaquim Mangala, Wilfried Bony and Jason Denayer.
But that is still not all. For example, online sportsbooks even believe in the possibility of Manchester City selling star players like Sergio Agüero. You can bet on Agüero’s new club at Paddy Power. According to the football special betting odds, would prefer returning to Spain – his odds to join Atletico Madrid are 6.0 (5/1) and the odds for Aguero to join Real Madrid are 8.00 (7/1).
Spending huge fortune is not so far away from Guardiola…
While he became famous as the home grown kid of Barcelona, building the strongest football team in the whole universe, relying only on home grown, true born Catalan players, this beautiful fairy tale is far away from being true. While Barcelona did play with many homegrown players during the unforgettable Pep era, many of those Catalans were actually sold and purchased back when they became famous – check out Piqué or Fabregas if you please.
Not to mention what he has done with Jupp Heynckess’ Bayern Munich who triumphed the entire world in 2013. He replaced a significant part of the squad, wasting world class players like Toni Kroos, for example. What he will be capable of achieving with his current club is still unknown, however, maybe you don’t want to join online sportsbooks in the UK to bet on Manchester City to win the Champions League, definitely not this season, but probably you shouldn’t in the next one either.
