After winning the triple treble, Manchester City (hereinafter referred to as “City”) is in the spotlight for its roster changes.
On the 18th (local time), the Mirror published a prediction of City’s best 11 for the 2023-24 season. ‘Having won the treble, City don’t need to make many changes to their squad, but they are interested in bringing in key players,’ the publication said, referring to the possibility of a midfield change through the signing of Rice.
City’s projected backline for the 2023-24 season includes Holland, Grealish, and Foden. The midfield is made up of De Bruyne, Rice, and Rodriguez, while the defense is made up of Ake, Dias, Akanji, and Stones. In goal, Ederson was selected.메이저놀이터
‘City boss Guardiola has the task of taking his side to the next level after winning the treble,’ says the Mirror, ‘City captain Doan Kwon is out of contract and is attracting interest from big clubs. There is a possibility that Kwon could leave the club and signing Rice could solve the problem. The outlet noted that United are unlikely to need much reinforcement in other positions.
Rice, who has been heavily linked with a move to City, made his Premier League debut for West Ham United in the 2016-17 season and went on to spend seven seasons with the Hammers, scoring 10 goals and providing 10 assists in 204 Premier League appearances. In 2022-23, he scored four goals in 37 Premier League appearances. He was particularly impressive in helping West Ham win the UEFA Confederations League in 2022-23. Rice has been heavily linked with a move to City, as well as Arsenal and other clubs, with a transfer fee estimated to be in the region of £100 million ($139.8 million).
City won the Premier League, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League in the 2022-23 season to complete the triple. It is the first time in 24 years that a Premier League club has completed a treble that also includes winning the UEFA Champions League since Manchester United in 1999. City enjoyed its best season ever by winning the UEFA Champions League for the first time in club history.
City will play their first preseason game next month when they face Yokohama F Marinos (Japan) on March 23. City will travel to South Korea during the preseason to face Atletico Madrid (Spain) at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on March 30.
