Manchester City clinched their sixth Premier League title in seven years during the 2023-24 season, yet under Pep Guardiola, no player’s position is assured.


Throughout Guardiola’s eight-year tenure at the Etihad, he has shown a willingness to offload players, with Cole Palmer, Riyad Mahrez, Aymeric Laporte, and Ilkay Gundogan all departing permanently last summer.


Here are five players who might leave Man City this summer:

1. Jack Grealish: Signed for a British record fee of €117.5 million in 2021, Grealish has not consistently lived up to expectations at the Etihad. Despite his role in City’s treble-winning squad, he is no longer a guaranteed starter and has faced on-field challenges under Guardiola. Aston Villa and Chelsea are rumored suitors, especially after his omission from England’s Euro 2024 squad.

2. Stefan Ortega: Despite impressing as Ederson’s understudy, Ortega remains second choice at best. He has hinted at potential interest from Bundesliga clubs like Eintracht Frankfurt but is cautious about his next move.

3. Bernardo Silva: While a trusted player under Guardiola, Silva has expressed interest in joining Barcelona, following the paths of Gundogan and Cancelo. With less time left on his contract, a move to Barcelona seems more plausible this summer.

4. Kalvin Phillips: Signed to provide midfield cover, Phillips struggled to secure playing time and was loaned to West Ham, where he also faced challenges. Leeds United has shown interest in re-signing their academy graduate.

5. Joao Cancelo: Despite being a top full-back, Cancelo fell out with Guardiola and spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich and then Barcelona. Another loan stint seems likely until Barcelona can afford a permanent transfer.

These players face uncertain futures at Man City as Guardiola continues to shape his squad for future challenges.
