It is well known amongst football fans that City’s current full backs are ageing. They may be experienced, but they are ageing nonetheless.
This season hasn’t necessarily been a precursor for their decline, with most of them in fine form when they haven’t been injured, but Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna are both aged 30 or above.
Whilst there aren’t many top bracket right backs available at the moment – in fact, there aren’t many really quality right-backs at all right now – City would definitely benefit from signing a young right back with huge potential.
One such player is 20-year old Hector Bellerin of Arsenal who, although highly anticipated to replace Dani Alves at former club Barcelona, would definitely be an unbelievable coup for City if they managed to lure the Spaniard to the Etihad.
Bellerin has already impressed at the Emirates and, despite the fact that Arsenal are in a position where they no longer need to sell their best players, they may possibly be tempted if a substantial offer was made.
