Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte ‘among disgruntled Manchester City players’ after season ended after losing Champions League final… with Pep Guardiola ‘focused on summer shake-up’ with Jack Grealish and Harry Kane on the wish list
- Manchester City ended their campaign by losing the Champions League final
- The Athletic claims that several players at the club are unhappy with their role
- Gabriel Jesus, Aymeric Laporte and Raheem Sterling are among the irritated group
- City would be open to discharging all stars who are unhappy in the club this summer
- sports mail has revealed that City will entertain offers for Sterling and Riyad Mahrez
Several Manchester City players are unhappy with their playing time at the club and would be willing to relocate this summer, according to reports.
Despite winning the Premier League and reaching the Champions League final in another great season, some first-team names are believed to be frustrated with their own roles.
the athletic one Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte all claim that their feelings are shared by other teammates, meaning there could be a stir in the coming weeks.
Pep Guardiola may be tasked with sacking some unfortunate Manchester City players soon
The report says the disgruntled group of players would ‘consider’ leaving, or even ‘actively push’ for a transfer. The city is believed to be willing to discharge stars who do not want to be with the Etihad.
Although the club reached the flagship in Porto over the weekend in their hunt for even more trophies, discontent among some players stretches back to before the final – and the situation remains the same.
City are gearing up for a lavish spend as the season comes to an end, an intention they held onto in the lead up to their Champions League clash. Regardless of the defeat, Pep Guardiola is expected to be heavily supported.
Raheem Sterling is reportedly unhappy with his role at City and will be able to leave the club

It’s this potential overhaul that will allow players who have set their sights elsewhere to see the exit door.
With club legend Sergio Aguero officially gone, Ace Jesus is expected to step up and take on more of the burden. However, he is said to be annoyed by the fact that he probably still won’t be playing in City’s big games.
Joao Cancelo, Rodri and even Bernardo Silva are also not completely satisfied, says The Athletic. Right-back Cancelo sought a move last year and is said to have ‘relapsed’ after losing weight many times.
As for Rodri, the midfielder is credited as not being ‘thrilled’ with City’s campaign conclusion. Silva, meanwhile, is subject to ‘muttering’ about his future despite his regular playing time.
Gabriel Jesus is believed to be annoyed that he is still unlikely to play in City’s biggest games
According to the outlet, Laporte would like to return to Spain to play for Barcelona or Real Madrid. Any of these switches seem unlikely at the moment, but City is reportedly aware of the defender’s intentions.
sports mail reported exclusively last week that Sterling and Riyad Mahrez are also not safe from the chopping block. It is clear that City will refine their team and that the two forwards will be allowed to leave.
Their departure would, of course, depend on City receiving acceptable compensation, and Arsenal have an interest in both. At the moment, the club also seem unable to land, due to their financial demands and a lack of European football.
Both Barcelona and Real are also interested in Sterling, and they have been for a while.

Jack Grealish is one of City’s goals for the summer, but would cost more than £ 100 million
The city needs money to make their dream notes, and all the money generated from the sale is spent on shopping.
As also revealed by sports mail, City is actively chasing Aston Villa talisman Jack Grealish as their number 1 midfield target. That deal, however, would cost more than £100 million, and Villa is keen to keep the hefty sum.
Also on City’s shortlist are Tottenham and the English striker Harry Kane. The superstar has said he wants to leave the club this summer, but once again City would be forced to spend an exorbitant sum of around £150million to buy him.
