Could Manchester City really be looking at Tottenham's Kyle Walker in summer transfer window?

Could Manchester City really be looking at Tottenham's Kyle Walker in summer transfer window?

This would obviously be a great transfer, but can we get excited? We all expect and hope that Pep Guardiola is planning a massive overhaul of the Manchester City squad in the summer transfer window. As good as this current group of players have been and as much as they've given to the club, they have to go at some point, and this summer presents the perfect opportunity. A total of seven players run out contract. All of them are over 30 and haven't done enough this season to really earn a new deal to stay at the Etihad for a little while longer. Maybe Yaya Touré and Pablo Zabaleta just make...

Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City, 2017 Premier League: Post-Match Reaction

Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City, 2017 Premier League: Post-Match Reaction

JESUS, THE SAVIOR!!!!!!!! Sergio Agüero, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Claudio Bravo still on the bench. Pep Guardiola sticking with the team that beat West Ham, with the only change being the return of Fernandinho to the starting lineup. Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sané and Raheem Sterling the front three again. Interesting lineup. There was a chance it was a back three, but Fernandinho played at right-back with Stones and Kolarov in the middle of the defense. Ten dominant minutes from City rewarded with a goal, and it's Gabriel Jesus! David Silva with an awesome play and Jesus shows his...

Can Manchester City still win the Premier League title? Pablo Zabaleta thinks it's possible

Can Manchester City still win the Premier League title? Pablo Zabaleta thinks it's possible

Zaba believes! 16 games to go, 13 points behind the leaders. The Premier League title is a distant dream for Manchester City. Chelsea are running away with the league and don't look like losing anymore, so the target for the Citizens should be a Champions League place. Finishing in the Top Four is tough as it is, worrying about the title seems crazy. Not to Pablo Zabaleta, who understands Chelsea is a really good team but will not give up on the league trophy just yet: "We have to be honest and realistic that Chelsea at the moment have been the best team in the league. "It's going to be...
