Manchester City feature an elite team in FIFA 22 that ranks as the highest-rated squad in the Premier League. The club has multiple options for various positions along with an extensive budget for Career Mode enthusiasts to enjoy.
Kevin De Bruyne (91) graces the English champions' roster as their best player, as well as the Premier League's highest-rated. Raheem Sterling (88), Ruben Dias (87) and Phil Foden (84), being some of the best players in their positions, are notable mentions.
Listed in the article are five FIFA 22 players that Career Mode enthusiasts should consider selling while playing with Manchester City.
FIFA 22: 5 players that Manchester City managers should sell at the beginning of Career Mode
5) Oleksandr Zinchenko (LB)
Manchester City are weakest in the left-back role with Joao Cancelo (86) playing in his secondary position to suit the club's needs. Zinchenko can be sold to acquire a higher-rated left-back, preferably Andrew Robertson (87) or Theo Hernandez (84).
4) Fernandinho (CDM)
Fernandinho is the club's oldest member of their current roster, having played for them since 2013. The 36-year-old's contract expires in a year. With his retirement nearing, Career Mode enthusiasts should look to sell him in their first season.
3) Kyle Walker (RB)
Kyle Walker is a quick and experienced fullback who is effective in his position. However, Career Mode players already have a world-class RB in Joao Cancelo and can opt to replace Walker with a young replacement instead of sidelining him.
2) Ilkay Gundogan (CM)
Gundogan was very influential the previous season, being the club's top scorer despite playing in the middle of the park. In FIFA 22, Gundogan lacks potential and can be replaced as the club already has sufficient quality in his position.
1) Riyad Mahrez (RW)
Mahrez has participated in 3 succesful campaigns with the club since his arrival. Despite his quality, players will have a difficult time managing Mahrez's playtime due to the club's abundance of expensive players in various positions. A striker replacement is ideal, considering Sterling (88) can occupy the starting RW role.
