Bye Kompany: 73% of polled Man City fans want Belgian dumped in favour of £22.5m-rated ace

The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for Pep Guardiola to bring forth a few changes at the Etihad this summer. Though they dominated the Premier League last season, clubs must continue to evolve, and that’s certainly the case for Man City.

There are a few members of the City squad that appear to be past their best, and that’s a problem when you consider Pep Guardiola’s long-term aspirations.

One such player is Vincent Kompany. The Belgian has had some injury problems as of late, and we recently made the case that he should be replaced in the first team by Harry Maguire

This is something that Man City fans want to see happen, it seems, at least according to a recent poll.  We asked fans whether they would like to see Maguire replacee Kompany, and 73% of the Man City faithful responded saying that they would.

In contrast to Kompany, Maguire – who is rated at £22.5 million by Transfer Markt – has enjoyed a fantastic injury-free season. He’s been consistent at the back for Leicester City, having regularly delivered combative, strong and technical performances for a team that has otherwise had mixed fortunes.

His fine form has been rewarded by a spot in the England World Cup squad, and he certainly deserves that honour. He’s a player for the past, present, and future – and he’d be a shrewd signing.
