If you believe what you read in the papers, the Blues’ squad will be decimated this summer with all our top stars linked with moves elsewhere.
Over the past week or so, we’ve been told Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri, David Silva, Joleon Lescott, Kolo Toure, Scott Sinclair and Carlos Tevez are all being lined up for summer ‘swoops’.
Today, add the names of Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero who, according to the Daily Mirror, could be playing their football in La Liga next season.
John Cross writes: “Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has got Manchester City duo Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero on his transfer hit list this summer.
“The Spanish giants are making it their priority to keep striker David Villa and sign Borussia Dortmund centre-half Mats Hummels to bolster their defence.
But Barcelona’s back-up plan includes City’s Argentine striker Aguero if they end up selling Villa this summer. And Barca will also look at Belgian centre-half Kompany if they cannot land No.1 transfer target Hummels.”
Of course, there could well be one or two players moving on this summer, but it seems unlikely any of the crown jewels will move on
As for Scott Sinclair, the City forward seems to be linked with a new club every day at the moment. The former Swansea man’s latest suggested destination is the south coast where Southampton are reportedly interested.
Andrew Dillon writes in The Sun: “Scott Sinclair has emerged as the top target for Southampton after he failed to make an impact at Manchester City.
“The winger, 23, has started just two matches for the Premier League champions since he made his surprise switch from Swansea at the start of last season.
“City had high hopes for Sinclair but Etihad boss Roberto Mancini has been reluctant to give the flier any lengthy run in the team as they try to narrow the 15-point gap on runaway Premier League leaders Manchester United.
“Mancini paid Swans £6.2million for Sinclair and would be expecting to get just as much back if City decide to cash in at the end of the campaign.”
