Another player who has been reportedly identified by Zidane as part of Real Madrid’s upcoming rebuild is Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen. The former Ajax academy graduate has been integral to Pochettino’s side in their run to the Champions League semi-finals and in their pursuit to secure Champions League football for the fourth consecutive season.

Fernandinho has proven to be one of Manchester City’s most influential players during Guardiola’s reign in Manchester. Much has been made of the lack of a capable understudy for the Brazilian, with Ilkay Gundogan, John Stones and Fabian Delph all tasked with filling in for Fernandinho whilst he has been unavailable this season; none of these whom are natural holding midfielders. The position remains one of the only holes in the squad that Guardiola is yet to fill. Fernandinho is now 33 years of age and his contract is due to expire in the Summer of 2020. Therefore, a defensive midfielder will surely be top of Guardiola’s shortlist in the coming summer to provide one season of transition. Of the names being linked as potential recruits for the Citizens over the summer, two names have repeatedly cropped up; Saul Niguez and Rodri.

This summer may see the end of the curious case of Alexis Sanchez. Hailed as a coup for Man United, having been snatched from under the noses of Pep Guardiola and Man City, Sanchez was expected to repeat the form that saw him praised from all corners of the English game whilst operating within a lacklustre Arsenal squad. That form never materialised and with Ole Gunnar Solskjær likely to be named Man United’s next permanent manager, it seems as though Sanchez will be leaving.
