A new season of Fantasy Premier League is on our collective doorstep, so do consider the following three potential Man City bargains.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side rallied to finish 2nd last time out despite looking at one point as if they were facing a fight to stay in the top four altogether.
The obvious question on everyone’s mind: is Sergio Agüero worth the £13m outlay? That’s for another debate entirely – right now, we’re just here to offer you some Man City bargains…
Yaya Touré, midfielder – £8.5m
If he can recapture the form of two seasons ago that saw him end up as the FPL’s best performing player – and after a restful summer free of World Cup duties, why shouldn’t he? – then that’s an astonishingly low price.
Samir Nasri, midfielder – £7m
It’s unclear how often he’ll start following the signing of Raheem Sterling, but if he does get games then he’s an affordable source of goals and assists.
Aleksandar Kolarov, defender – £5.5m
This one is contingent on the Serb establishing himself as City’s first-choice left-back, as he may be in for another season of rotation with Gaël Clichy. Should he manage to, his potential for goals and assists from the back could prove invaluable.
