For Manchester City fans here in the Tavern, this season has been nothing short of a joy, with their team dominating the Premier League and romping to title glory ahead of rivals Manchester United.
Pep Guardiola has managed to get his team ticking just the way he likes, and they very much look set for a spell of dominance in the English game barring a miracle catch up by other clubs.
City’s attacking play has very much been the focus, and rightly so, but in defence they do actually have the best in the league based on goals conceded. However, our landlord has heard plenty of murmurings over the season about how City can be ‘got at’, and how they look vulnerable at the back against the best, and he thinks signing a world class central defender might well address this.
John Stones looks to be on his way out, while Vincent Kompany is well into his 30s now, and a new man to marshall the back four could well be a priority for ‘Pep’.
With that in mind, we’ve looked at exactly who we think City should sign this summer to shore up their backline.
