Pep Guardiola made it clear that they are set to miss the services of John Stones for five weeks. The Frenchman Aymeric Laporte is out for months, which means Nicolas Otamendi is the only option Gourdiola holds in the center-back position.
Cancelo is hungry to play as a right-back, means the former Barcelona manager can use Kyle Walker with Otamendi for some weeks. After Vincent Kompany’s departure, City should have signed a young center-back.
Walker is a fully-matured defender and can serve the purpose for City in certain crucial matches against the not so big sides. Indeed, a perfect task in front of Guardiola is to show that they can win even without Aymeric Laporte and Jones Stones.
