The front-runner, and deserved favourite to take over the armband.
Kolo Toure was made captain after his arrival from Arsenal and Richard Dunne's departure to Aston Villa at the beginning of last season.
In a season where he suffered a dip in form and some injuries, it is fair to say he didn't become the skipper City had expected.
In the summer Roberto Mancini decided to take the role off of Toure and give it to Tevez.
There are stories stating this was because they wanted to give Tevez more responsibility and more reason to stay.
Others showing that Toure had suffered a loss of form due to the pressure of being captain.
Believe what you will, but Toure is just like Kompany is born winner.
If he was to re-claim the armband it would be a great appointment, he has the experience and has won the Premiership in the past.
He has bounced back at City superbly this season, and is one the players of the campaign so far.
If Mancini does decide to appoint a new captain. then he will not look any further than these four City superstars.
