Manchester City fans in the Tavern are still celebrating their Premier League title success but plenty of our punters are eyeing even more trophies next season.
Pep Guardiola’s side cruised to the Premier League trophy last season, finishing a massive 19 points ahead of their local-rivals Manchester United. The Citizens also lifted the Carabao Cup back in February ,however, despite their immense squad strength, they fell short in Europe once again by losing to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals.
If City are to finally secure the Champions League trophy that has eluded them in recent years, they must continue to strengthen their squad this summer. Recent reports from The Daily Star claim they are interested in signing Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, but the Blues are unlikely to allow their star forward to sign for a Premier League rival. With that being said, City should instead turn their attention towards Juventus’ crown jewel, namely Paulo Dybala.
The Argentine has emerged as one of the world’s best attacking players after completing stunning campaigns with both Palermo and the Old Lady in Serie A. He netted 26 goals in all-competitions last season on the way to his 3rd Serie A title in his 3rd season with the club and, unsurprisingly, his value has sky-rocketed to a mind-boggling £90m according to Transfermarkt.
With doubts looming over Sergio Aguero’s future at the club, Dybala would be the perfect replacement, and alongside Gabriel Jesus City would have arguably the most devastating combination of attacking players in world football. With Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva behind him, the 24-year-old would be a frightening prospect for Premier League defenders to take on.
Reports over the years have sporadically linked Lionel Messi with a sensational move to Manchester, however, in Dybala, City might just have the next best thing.
