Manchester City is not the sort of club football where a relative unknown is apt to burst onto the scene.
City as a club does all their bursting in transfer windows—and as the sarcastic among you might add, anytime they are called on to play a match in the Champions League.
So there would be precious little point in trying to con you into believing that Denis Suarez, John Guidetti or Abdul Razak is going to become a Sky Blue mainstay by the end of the coming season.
Instead, the five players I will discuss here are all well-established. By "breakout season," understand that I generally mean either "new to you" prominence as recent acquisitions or, in the case of a player like Sergio Aguero (pictured above), significant improvement over recent form.
And for one Citizen, the "breakout" may not be so pleasing.
