City have actually strengthened all areas of their team. For years Sergio Aguero has had to lead the City frontline. Whenever, he has been injured (which has happened quite often), the teams has invariably looked disoriented.
This is now set to change with the arrival of Leroy Sane. The much heralded German has been bought for a hefty transfer fee, and the team will look towards him to reap their investment.
Sane’s teammate, Gundogan, has been one of the bargains of the summer at just 20 million pounds. He needs some much needed steel to the middle of the park. Spanish winger, Nolito, will also substantially improve the attack. He also provides a wonderful alternative to Raheem Sterling.
City’s most expensive signing has been John Stones. And he can very well be said to be worth it. A 22 year old centre back, with a wealth of experience behind him. Stones could be the cornerstone around which City’s defence is built for years.
