EPL 18/19: 4 Manchester City players who need to leave this summer
- With a lot of top players being underutilised at Manchester City, here is a look at of four of them who need to leave the club this summer.
Ever since Manchester City was bought by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the club has received a large amount of investment and it's fair to say that the investment has paid off with the way things are right now. Players like Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho, Nigel de Jong, Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are just a few players who have cemented their place in Manchester City's history.
However, not all the transfers since 2008 have worked out and a number of players have been huge flops. Players like Robinho, Jérôme Boateng, Samir Nasri, Emmanuel Adebayor and a long list of other players have had their careers stalled because things have not worked out for them at the club.
While some players just couldn't adjust to life at Manchester, right now, with the level of competition at Manchester City, a lot of players are not getting chances they deserve with the first team.
Here is look at four Manchester City players who need to leave this summer:
#1 Claudio Bravo
The Chilean shot-stopper joined the club the same year Pep Guardiola joined and while he was always the first choice between the sticks in his first season, he has hardly played any games since then. In his first season, Claudio Bravo made a total of 30 appearances, but since the arrival of Ederson the following season, Bravo has gradually lost his place in the Manchester City squad.
In the 17/18 season, Bravo made just 13 appearances. This season the Chilean has made just one appearance, and with the arrival of Arijanet Muric, he has slipped further down the pecking order.
Bravo is 35 years old right now and considering that he is a goalkeeper he might still have a few good years left in him. Bravo might not be able to find a top-level club to play for, but considering his experience a number of clubs will be after him.
With Bravo edging closer to the end of his career, he will not want to spend these last few years on the bench and he should look to move on at the end of the season.
