Pablo Zabaleta to leave Manchester City in the summer

A freakish penalty "miss" by Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez at the Etihad Stadium allowed Manchester City to squeeze out a 2-1 victory that lifted them to third place, above Liverpool.

Manchester City are expected to be one of the most active sides in the transfer market this summer, with Guardiola set to shake up his squad after a disappointing first season in England for the former Barcelona boss.

Guardiola, meanwhile, has fanned the flames of reports linking City with a £30m summer move for 18-year-old AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has 12 months remaining on his San Siro contract.

City were tipped by many as Premier League favourites back in August but fell so far off the pace Fernandinho did not even know the title was being settled by Chelsea's 1-0 win over the Baggies on Friday.

Pep Guardiola has heralded outgoing full-back Pablo Zabaleta as one of the most important players in Manchester City history.

Guardiola said it would not have been tolerated at either of his previous club, Barca and Bayern, where he lifted a combined 21 trophies, including six League titles in seven seasons. "He has huge skill for 19 [sic], but I like a lot of goalkeepers". His impact here was incredible. Nine years he has been here.

"He was the first player to come here when the owners arrived".




"What he and other guys did for the club, it helped [make] this club what it is right now".

Good gracious, he deserves better than West Ham.

Whereas the ball was converted, the fact it was done so via a double touch may mean that Madley was correct to overlook the encroachment of City's players.

Top scorer Sergio Aguero could return to the starting line-up, while defender John Stones (groin) is also in contention.

Offers have been made to Navas and Adarabioyo, and Toure is also likely to be given a contract if City qualify for the Champions League.

The Brazilian could've possibly picked up his fourth red card of the season when he elbowed Marc Albrighton in the second half, and he was lucky that the referee didn't see it.

"It was a slow start to the season but we picked up and it's been a fantastic journey and a fantastic ride", said Pulis. You need a guy like Kun [Sergio Aguero] to score the goals but sometimes a last-ditch challenge, which are things that often get forgotten quite easily, but teammates and players like us we remember those and it's a feeling that you have.
