Manchester City will be hoping to take leaps towards winning the Premier League title, now that they’re one point ahead of Liverpool. Indeed, despite all the success City fans have enjoyed over the years, this is new territory, isn’ it? Potentially defending a title. Wow, imagine the scenes…
Yes, the amount of money they’ve spent over desensitises just how good Pep Guardiola’s men are to the neutral, but the reigning champions simply must be applauded for how they’ve come back to put themselves in this position.
Guardiola is a serial winner and that reflects down onto his players, who have performed magnificently since the turn of the year. Manchester City have now reasserted themselves as title favourites and with the quality throughout their squad in every position, there is no reason why they won’t claim back-to-back titles.
Next season, City will again be sure to invest in some new talented players to boost their options but one player they should seriously consider is a little closer to home. With a potential transfer ban looming, all hands will be on deck to ensure the club are ready in such an instance.
Youngster Eric Garcia, is a defender that definitely looks to be good enough to be in and around the first-team next season, if given the chance by Pep Guardiola.
Garcia has already made three appearances for the first team this season, a sign of his immense potential at the age of just 18.
Now he is City’s property and, judging by the showings he displayed for the first-team on three occasions plus his appearances for the youth teams, next season could see Garcia permanently with Pep Guardiola.
Garcia would be considered a typical Spanish defender, seeing as he’s extremely comfortable on the ball and has a brilliant range of passing that could soon see him evolve into a defensive midfielder.
With those qualities in mind, he would surely be the perfect fit in Guardiola’s system and could be City’s next youngster to prosper on the big stage. Alongside John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, he could certainly help replace the ageing Nicolas Otamendi.
