Our Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern think their club is on the brink of a very bright future under Pep Guardiola and Don Balon’s latest report is certainly boosting that feeling.
The Citizens are one of the strongest sides around and they should really be closer to Chelsea than they are in the Premier League title race.
What’s let them down, then, is their defence and our landlord reckons that is where Pep Guardiola is going to aim to strengthen in the summer window.
He might just be able to get Hector Bellerin in from Arsenal, too, with the right-back reportedly favouring a move to the Etihad over Barcelona if he is to leave the Gunners.
The Spaniard is one of the most talented full-backs around in the game at the moment and with him only in his early 20’s there’s every chance he’ll only get better.
Exciting times for our City punters here by the bar, then, whilst our local Arsenal fans are starting to feel concerned about this situation.
Thoughts on this one, City fans? Let us know your thoughts below!
