Manchester City's Potential Squad Depth For 22/23 Is Simply Unfair, Give Them ALL The Trophies Now
| Last updated
Manchester City's squad is somehow getting stronger and by the end of the transfer window, they will be unstoppable.
Pep Guardiola's side won the Premier League title on the final day of last season and it means they have won it four times in the last five years.
It was not without struggle though and Liverpool pushed them all the way, with dramatic victory over Aston Villa being the difference.
City are not a team to rest on their laurels and Guardiola has already to move a few players on. Fernandinho left the club after nine years of service and Gabriel Jesus is close to joining Arsenal.
Meanwhile Raheem Sterling, the longest serving player at the Etihad Stadium, could be set for a move to Chelsea.
Does this mean City will enter 2022/2023 weakened? Not a chance. They could be ready to kick-start a new era of dominance.
Ederson remains one of the best goalkeepers in world football and will remain number one for years to come.
In defence, Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo are as good a full-back duo you're likely to see with the reliable Oleksandr Zinchenko in reserve.
City have been linked with a move for Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella, who could offer more depth in that position. Cancelo regularly operates on the left despite being a right-back by trade.
Ruben Dias can partner either of John Stones or Aymeric Laporte with ease and Nathan Ake seems content with a backup role.
Midfield is where City are stacked and they will get even stronger with the addition of Kalvin Phillips.
The England international is moving closer to leaving boyhood side Leeds United and a fee of around £45 million was agreed late last week.
He will offer competition for Rodri as the deepest midfielder, but could play further forward too.
Those spots are currently occupied by any two of Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva.
Academy graduate James McAtee made his senior debut in 2021 and is expected to kick on in the next campaign.
Up top has seen the most change with the impending departure of Jesus and likely exit of Sterling.
City signed Julian Alvarez from River Plate in January and loaned him back to the Argentine outfit, where he impressed.
He will be integrated into the first-team alongside blockbuster signing Erling Haaland. The 21-year-old penned a five-year deal in May after City triggered his Borussia Dortmund release clause.
It will be Haaland who starts most games up front, and the wingers playing either side of him will provide excellent service.
Three Lions duo Phil Foden and Jack Grealish alternate on the left and Riyad Mahrez remains one of the most underrated players in the league on the right, with Cole Palmer his understudy.
City won one trophy last season and made it to the FA Cup and Champions League semi-finals.
With a new and improved squad and motivated manager, could they be the team who finally wins the quadruple? Watch this space.
