Congratulations must be due to a Manchester City side that fought their way to a thrilling Premier League title.
But after the dust settles on their last-gasp win on Sunday, the very idea that an expensively assembled City squad finished a 38-game season on level points with a Manchester United team many consider to be one of their weakest in recent years will have played into Roberto Mancini’s mind.
Mancini seems to have realized this point himself, this week admitting to the press that he expects City to dip into the transfer market once again this summer.
As we look through the City squad, we see a world-class spine in Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure, David Silva and Sergio Aguero, but we also see areas for further improvement, especially if City are to live up to their aspirations to compete with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Here are five positions Manchester City must strengthen this summer, along with my two cents on potential signings—and feel free to suggest yours in the comments below.
