After two consecutive years crowned in the Premier League, Man City soon surrendered to Liverpool in the 2019/20 championship race with 18 points worse in the Premier League 2020/21. Therefore, the Etihad Stadium team is determined to regain its position with a familiar solution: swinging “money tons” to buy players. As a result, just a few days after the 2020 summer transfer market opened, they quickly welcomed 4 new recruits, including 2 blockbuster contracts Ferran Torres (from Valencia, £ 21 million) and Nathan Ake (Bournemouth, £ 41 million).

Remember, Man City has successfully appealed the ban to attend the Champions League for 2 years and can comfortably welcome the stars to conquer noble titles. Even according to the evaluation of Unikrn’s supercomputer, Pep’s teachers and students – not the defending champion Liverpool – are the number one candidate for the 2020/21 season crown. Of course, Torres or Ake is just the beginning of the campaign of “going to the market” of Man City in the Premier League 2020/21. Most recently, the former Premier League king contacted Napoli about Kalidou Koulibaly’s case. The Senegal midfielder is interested in many “big men”, including MU, but there has not been any official offer made by Napoli that will only release him if he receives £ 81 million.

Even according to information from the media in recent days about the Premier League 2020/21, Man City can completely explode the most shocking blockbuster in club history: Lionel Messi. The 6-time superstar who won the Golden Ball was no longer interested in Barca and even though the contract fee was 700 million euros, Man City fans were still interested in the prospect of teachers and teachers Pep – Messi reuniting at Etihad Stadium. Messi is a distant story, but the other stars are completely in the financial ability of Man City. Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan) or Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid) is the first choice to succeed Aguero’s No. 9 shirt in the future.


Pep Guardiola is a strategist who is constantly looking for ways to innovate himself. After the failure of last season, Man City “version Premier League 2020/21” will definitely take a different shape under the hands of former “captain” Barca, whether Messi or Lautaro Martinez or not. Based on the familiar 4-3-3 tactical scheme, the focus for Man City’s attacking ideas will still revolve around Kevin De Bruyne, the best player in the Premier League 2019/20.

The departure of David Silva did not leave a big gap in the midfield because “jewel” Phil Foden showed that he was completely ready to replace the Spanish legend after a brilliant season. With the trio of Rodri – Foden – De Bruyne providing the ball, rookie Ferran Torres, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero are completely free to focus on the only task: scoring.

In the wooden frame, no one can take Ederson’s place in Premier League 2020/21. The presence of Koulibaly will definitely raise the level of defence. At that time, the Senegal star was more likely to be paired with Laporte, with the wings Mendy and Walker. The best scenario, Man City successfully recruits Messi, Ferran Torres will have to make room for the Argentinian superstar on the right corridor. Of course, regardless of position, Messi is still the nucleus of the gameplay built by Pep – the formula that brought Barca to the peak of glory more than 10 years ago!
