Three Potential Sales Guardiola Could Sanction In The Off-Season

Three Sales Guardiola Could Sanction

With Manchester City looking to strengthen in attempt to accomplish a successive treble of Premier League titles – something that has only been achieved twice before – here are three potential sales Pep Guardiola could potentially sanction in the off-season.

Leroy Sané

The  23-year-old’s contract expires in 2021 and he has seen the chances of being a sure-fire starter slip away.

Though the German winger finished with double figures in both goals and assists, this feat was made all the more remarkable that he made only 21 starts in the league out of the 38-game season.

Bayern Munich are the interested party for the former PFA Young Player of the Year; a likely return to the homeland.

Benjamin Mendy

The 24-year-old has made just 17 league appearances across the two seasons at Manchester City.

Two serious knee injuries that have blighted his career since his move to the Etihad in 2017 has produced the remarkable record of the £52million left-back from AS Monaco winning six trophies in 22 games across the past year.

Questions are repeatedly asked about the French defender’s attitude- and his work ethic during his recuperation period.

Eliaquim Mangala

The 28-year-old has featured even less than Mendy!

The £40million remnant of the Manuel Pellegrini era was generally derided last year for picking up a winner’s medal – in full kit – after he spent half the season on loan at Everton.

Surprisingly Mangala signed a one-year contract extension in March 2019, though the odds are that this was done for monetary purposes, instead of Man City seeing the French defender leave on a Bosman in the summer.
