Manchester City are the best club in the world. There are no two ways about it – It’s home to the best players in the world, managed by the best coach in the world. Last season, Pep Guardiola led his side to winning the treble and this year they’re the clear favourites to win the Premier League trophy for a fourth consecutive year.

Certainly, City’s dominance has been helped by their alleged breaching of the FFP regulations. Since their “investigation” midway through last season, we haven’t heard anything more on that matter. But still, that’s a story for a rainy day.

Either way, you can’t fault Pep for his managerial skills. But what’s the secret to his success? Well, that’s unknown. As you can tell by his tactical decisions, the Spanish coach operates on a sense of mystery and unpredictability.

Manchester City could sell Julian Alvarez and bring in Evan Ferguson

In the latest edition of “What would Pep do?”, the coach could be set to part ways with one of his best players. According to FourFourTwo, Manchester City are prepared to sell Julian Alvarez, with Real Madrid interested. It’s thought that his replacement has already been located in Evan Ferguson.

Alvarez, who had a VERY good season last year by winning the World Cup, Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup, is surplus to requirements at the Etihad Stadium. He’s been lucky to start every game this season but when everyone is fit, he’s the one that misses out. That’s not my opinion, it’s fact – Pep wouldn’t be starting him every game if Kevin De Bruyne wasn’t injured.

In truth, making room in the squad to sign the absolute sensation of Evan Ferguson from Brighton isn’t the worst idea in the world. After all, he’s a proven goal scorer in the Premier League and will only get better under Pep.
