Manchester City find themselves in a position where their top stars are unlikely to be lured away by suitors due to the fact that they are Premier League champions.
The North West outfit have one of the best managers around guiding them and Pep Guardiols is shaping a team that could go from strength to strength.
However, there are some fringe players who may decide to move on due to lack of game time, and there is currently a question mark surrounding Oleksandr Zinchenko.
The 21-year-old has been on City’s books since 2016, but last season he made just eight Premier League appearances.
With Benjamin Mendy likely to be fit and Fabian Delph being another option at left-back, it is unlikely that Zinchenko will receive regular minutes under Guardiola this season.

According to The Mirror on Thursday, Wolverhampton Wanderers were planning to launch a club-record £16m bid for the Ukrainian.
Express & Star journalist Tim Nash later tweeted that the figure had been agreed between both parties.

Gutted if we sell him. Very handy utility player, and a good laugh in the dressing room it seems.
