The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester City eye possible reinforcements.
The 2018-19 champions did not bring in a single player during the January transfer window, despite suffering a defensive shortage for much of the campaign so far.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Etihad.
Monday morning's Manchester City transfer talk news roundup:
Luke Shaw could reportedly be sold by Manchester United this summer as the Red Devils consider a move to bring Leicester City's Ben Chilwell to Old Trafford.
Chilwell has been strongly linked with Chelsea and Manchester City ahead of this summer's transfer window, but a recent report claimed that the England international was also a £60m target for United.
According to The Mirror, should the 20-time English champions move for the Foxes defender then Shaw 'could be sacrificed' despite arguably enjoying his best season for United.
Shaw has been in impressive form for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this term, contributing one goal and three assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.
The 25-year-old still has three years left to run on his contract at Old Trafford, meanwhile, and the club have the option of activating a further 12 months until June 2024.
United will be looking to move into the top four in the Premier League table when they welcome Southampton on Monday night.
Kalidou Koulibaly has insisted that remains focused on his time with Napoli amid persistent speculation linking the defender with a move away this summer.
Koulibaly has been linked with several high-profile clubs having starred in the heart of the Napoli defence, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona all rumoured to be weighing up approaches.
A recent report claimed that Liverpool and Man United had made contact with Napoli regarding a proposed summer move, but Koulibaly has affirmed that he remains committed to the Serie A outfit.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Senegalese centre-back said: "In football, you never know what happens. I never spoke to Napoli about leaving. If we have to find a solution, we will find it, but I have never talked about the transfer market.
"I also read in the newspapers about my future. But I only want to think about playing, I am 100% [committed to] Napoli and it bothers me to be linked, every day, to this or that European club.
"We will see what the president (Aurelio De Laurentiis) will decide and if he proposes to extend my contract, that would allow me to end my career here.
"At the moment, I still have a three-year contract and I am not thinking of anything else but Napoli."
Koulibaly, who has turned out 19 times in the league this season, would supposedly cost in the region of £72m despite the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.
