Manchester City propelled themselves back into the title picture in midweek with a 2-1 win over Liverpool, and they continued their good form with a thumping 7-0 cup win over Rotherham United this weekend.
The Cityzens will no doubt be right in the mix come the end of the season and Pep Guardiola would love nothing more than to win two consecutive Premier League titles following last season’s massive success story.
The City squad does have some players in it though that are reaching the end of their shelf life somewhat, and while Sergio Aguero for one keeps banging in the goals, there is going to come a time when Guardiola will need to look at bringing in fresh talent to take over from the little Argentinian.
That’s why we think Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez might well be one of the long term answers available to City and Guardiola if they do indeed choose to make their move for a new forward in either this window or the next.
Valued at some £25m already, the 21-year-old only made his move to Europe in the summer, but has already shown enough to suggest he could go on to become a big hit at the right club.
While Gabriel Jesus will hope to be City’s main man for years to come, City will always need quality in numbers, and Martinez could well fit the mould perfectly for what they are looking for going forward.
City fans, what do you think? Would this be a good long term signing? Let us know in the comments!
