It is strange to think that Manchester City and Pep Guardiola may want to rebuild after doing the double and winning the Premier League.
However, they once again failed to win the Champions League so they may look to move on some players that have been around for a while, something that wouldn’t surprise former City star Paul Stewart.
Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez have been touted with moves away from the Etihad, and the former experienced probably his worst season for Man City as he was often shunned to the bench for important games such as Champions League clashes against Borussia Dortmund and PSG.
Should Sterling and Mahrez leave Man City?
There have been reports suggesting that Guardiola and the Man City board are not afraid to splash the cash this money to try and win that elusive Champions League trophy, and suggestions that they want both Harry Kane and Jack Grealish is a potentially terrifying prospect for the rest of the teams.
Man City have got a lot of players within their ranks that have been at the club for a number of years and it could be a case of they are too comfortable, so Guardiola could look to show some of them the exit door this summer and Stewart expects this to happen, as he spoke exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“I think that you might see Mahrez go this summer because I think City might look to rebuild, so Raheem Sterling could be shown the door.”
Despite seemingly not being one of Guardiola’s favourite or most trusted players, Sterling was handed a surprising start in the Champions League final, which saw them try a new system and it failed miserably.
