Are two key players set to remain at Manchester City after the summer?

While Manchester City have wrapped up the Premier League title, they have the FA Cup final ahead this weekend. The Premier League champions face off against Manchester United on Saturday before their season officially ends. As the 23/24 closes for the Premier League champions, the summer transfer window is coming into view. With that in mind, a new report indicates that two of Manchester City’s key players look set to remain at the club next season.

David McDonnell has reported for the Mirror that despite doubts over the future’s of Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne, the pair are expected to remain at the club for next season. Furthermore, McDonell reports that De Bruyne and Walker are expected to make a decision on the next stage of their careers at the end of next season.

Manchester City can not afford to lose to many experienced players this summer.

It is no surprise to see reports linking several of Manchester City’s experienced players with potential exits this summer. After a sustained era of success, it may be time for a new challenge for some of City’s key players. McDonnell also reports that there are doubts over Ederson, Jack Grealish, and Bernardo Silva’s futures at Manchester City. Who departs Manchester City is a massive story to watch unfold this summer.

But what the world champions can not afford is to see a plethora of key and senior players depart. Players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker, Ederson, and Bernardo Silva help set the standards at Manchester City. They are key players on the pitch. But they are just as important off it. Their leadership helps drive Manchester City forward. With players such as Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker setting the standards, it helps show City’s younger players what it takes to succeed at the highest level. To lose that influence could be a huge blow to Manchester City.

But David McDonnell’s report indicates that two of Manchester City’s key players look set to stay at the club. If Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne do stay at the Premier League champions this summer, it would be a massive boost for Pep Guardiola’s side. While the time will come when their City careers end, it may not be a thought that has to be contemplated until the end of next season.
