Most of Manchester City’s key players are already back at the camp and getting ready for their 2019 summer pre-season tour.
The back-to-back Premier League champions have a busy couple of weeks ahead of them.
Their Asia tour starts with a clash against familiar faces in West Ham at the Nanjing Olympic Stadium.
After that, they face more English opposition in the matches against Wolves and Newcastle at the same venue before moving to Shanghai for the latter stages of the tournament.
To finish things off, the Citizens will face Kitchee FC at the Hong Kong Stadium on 24 July and finally Yokohama F Marinos in Japan.
Raheem Sterling is one star who has been confirmed as one player who will take part in the tour.
With that knowledge in mind, City’s prolific winger has already been training pretty hard to arrive in shape.
His latest Instagram story shows him hard at work ahead of the first summer obstacles and using the gym well into the evening.
The 24-year-old forward had a truly magnificent season in the most recent campaign.
In 2018/19, he played 51 games in all competitions and managed to score a total of 25 goals and provided 18 assists.
It appears that Sterling is not resting on his laurels ahead of the new campaign, and fans will be delighted to see he is maintaining the highest standard of professionalism during the off-season.
