With a squad as talented as Manchester City’s, Pep Guardiola doesn’t have much to do.
One task the Manchester City does need to complete, though, is finding a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

Finding a replacement is necessary but has proven a difficult task, with City missing out on both Fred and Jorginho in the last year alone.
Guardiola’s side are regularly liked with potential replacements, so we’ve taken a look at five candidates for City to consider.
