The Manchester City supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to next season as Pep Guardiola gets to work on reviving the club’s fortunes, following a fourth place finish last season.
One of Guardiola’s first tasks upon arrival at the club will be to revamp a squad that looks in need of a facelift, with some players set to arrive and others set to leave via the exit door at the Etihad Stadium.
One of our devout Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern has spotted an article in the Manchester Evening News, which claims one fan favourite is set to depart the Citizens this summer.
The report states that Argentinean defender Pablo Zabaleta could have played his last game for the club and City are ready to listen to offers for the long-serving right-back.
The 31-year-old found himself out of favour last season and now looks set to depart the club where he has resided for eight years.
One Manchester City fan is sat chatting with the landlord here in the Tavern and he thinks Zabaleta has been a great servant for City, although he does concede that now is the right time for him to depart the club.
Manchester City fans, are you happy that Zabaleta is set to leave? Which right-back do you think Guardiola will choose to replace him at City?
