Pep Guardiola certainly has the stones to make big changes at Manchester City, having shipped out club legend Joe Hart in the summer.
And the bookies reckon Sergio Aguero will be the next casualty, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lined up as his replacement.
The Gabon international has proved himself one of world football’s finest strikers at Borussia Dortmund, netting 61 times in 103 Bundesliga games since his arrival in 2013 – with Pep’s Bayern Munich among those on the receiving end of his sensational finishing.
Having begun this campaign with 10 goals in 11 games across all competitions, the pacy and prolific hitman finds himself at the top of City’s wishlist. And the Blues are 2/1 to get their man by the end of next summer, with 6/1 for the Manchester club to swoop in January.
That could spell the end for Sergio Aguero, with the striker having already been benched during this season’s Champions League campaign.
He’s also failed to net in his last five games for the Citizens – one of the Argentine’s longest goal droughts at the club.
With the experienced striker losing favour under the ruthless Blues boss, it’s just Evens that he’s sold on by next summer, while 6/1 says he’s sent packing as early as January.
For now, Guardiola will have to revitalise his current crop, who haven’t tasted victory in any of their last five games.
The positive for the Blues boss? Tomorrow night’s opponents Manchester United are in disarray after a 4-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
It’s 7/4 that the Blues win at Old Trafford for the fourth time in six visits, while City fans could also be tempted to have a flutter on a repeat of that famous 6-1 scoreline at the princely price of 350/1.
