Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions for a second consecutive season last month, lifting the title by one point on the final day.

The Sky Blues narrowly pipped Liverpool to the trophy after coming back from 2-0 down against Aston Villa.

Pep Guardiola’s side have acted swiftly in their pursuit for fresh faces at the Etihad Stadium in order to try and secure a third title in as many campaigns with the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

The latter has joined City on a five-year deal until the summer of 2027 after an impressive 18-months at Dortmund where he scored 86 goals in 89 games.

Haaland will become a Sky Blues’ player on July 1 and isn’t the only new player arriving to the club this summer with January signing Julian Alvarez set to join up with his new teammates ahead of pre-season.

The 2022-23 Premier League campaign will begin over the first weekend of August and the fixtures for the new season will be released at 9am on Thursday morning.

With that being said, let’s take a look at how a new City best XI could look based on their summer activity so far.
