The Citizens main weakness is at centre-back as they are yet to find a suitable partner for Vincent Kompany.
Manuel Pellegrini will look to solve that problem by signing either Eliaquim Mangala or Inigo Martinez.
Manchester City are also likely to make one big-money signing - simply because they have the funds to do so.
Edinson Cavani of PSG could be available in the summer as he has failed to settle into life at the Ligue 1 outfit.
Predicted line-up for next season: Hart; Zabaleta, Mangala, Kompany, Clichy; Fernandinho, Yaya Toure; Cavani, Silva, Nasri; Aguero.
