Following the treble winning season, many Blues made the assumption that the club would spend big with their winnings. However, this is a squad that has just had one of the most successful seasons in English football history.
Therefore, the Blues have a squad that is so far beyond those around that strengthening with signings could actually have the opposite effect.
Sources close to the club say that the only incomings will likely be to replace outgoings, except Gvardiol. The Croatian defenders signing might mean that City will offload from their wealth of defensive options.
With both Laporte and Cancelo exploring potential destinations away from the club, they will not be replaced.
However, some City fans are convinced that the Blues need a winger as a matter of urgency. While others believe that squad depth is an area that needs targeting.
The majority of fans trust the Director of Football Txiki Begiristain after the incredible job he has done since joining the club. Yet it seems a mere few perceive real football and transfer business as a game of FIFA.
