Man City’s frightening XI if Pep Guardiola clinches Jack Grealish and Harry Kane transfers
Manchester City may just be able to field their strongest ever side if they land both Jack Grealish and Harry Kane this summer. The England duo are expected to be the subject of proposals from the Premier League champions after the European Championships, as they look to bolster their firing line.
First though, City may need to clear the decks as they target a small overhaul.
It has been suggested that both Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez could be sold in order to raise funds.
Both have played a huge part in the club’s success under Pep Guardiola but if the board want to upgrade their attack, cold-hearted decisions may have to be made.
City’s frontline is the area where they will invest this summer and signing Grealish and Kane would revolutionise their attack.

Grealish would be set to play from the left, where he drifts inside and creates pockets of space for others to penetrate.
Phil Foden can play from the right, as he continues his sensational rise into one of the best young talents in world football.
Kane, who could cost up to £150m, would then spearhead the attack.
He is believed to be keen on working with Guardiola and playing alongside De Bruyne and now there is a genuine possibility that it could happen.
The Tottenham frontman is set to decide his future after the Euros when Daniel Levy will attempt to convince him to stay.
City have played almost the entire season without a No 9 this term and they would become frightening with him up top.
He could hold the key to Champions League glory after they fell at the final hurdle in Porto.
Not only that but Kane has already gone public on his admiration for Grealish, detailing their special connection on the field.
It could be the perfect recipe for Guardiola next season and it will take something special for them to retain the title, particularly if Chelsea sign Erling Haaland.
Potential Man City XI next season: Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Walker; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Grealish, Foden, Kane.
