The 2018/19 season is done, the winners have been decorated, and the giants have started to scour the transfer market looking for improvements to their squads. Already, Real Madrid have confirmed the transfers of Luka Jović and Eden Hazard. Interestingly enough, Premier League champions, known for their eagerness to rake in new players for nontrivial amounts, are linked with only few players.

Manchester City defended their Premier League title and won everything apart from the Champions League this season. It is certain that the Citizens will try to finally place their hands on this trophy during the next campaign, but it is obvious that the squad that will attempt to achieve that goal will differ from the victorious one from the 2018/19 season.

In this slideshow, I will try to break down and theorycraft the most likely starting XI for the upcoming season. Who is leaving? Who will join City? Let’s take a look.
