With Euro 2020 wrapped up, Manchester City are looking to finalise their two rumoured marquee transfers for the summer: Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Tottenham'sHarry Kane.
However, Kane and Grealish won't come cheap, and both stars will command transfer fee's north of £100million should Pep Guardiola want to secure their services next season.
And, according to The Athletic, City are looking to sign both of England's Euro 2020 heroes this summer – not just one of them.
So Daily Star Sport is having a look at what players could be leaving the Etihad this summer to raise funds for Grealish and Kane.
Bernardo Silva earned himself a mega-money move to City after he impressed in a Monaco side that also featured Kylian Mbappe, Fabinho, and Radamel Falcao.
And he was soon up to his usual tricks at the Etihad; his dazzling dribbling helped City to, incredibly, reach the 100 point barrier in the 17/18 season.
However, he has found opportunities few and far between for the past couple of seasons, and the man that was once considered Cristiano Ronaldo's successor could look for a move to restart his career.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have been touted as possible destinations for Silva, whose sale could fund a large part of the transfer kitty.

There were talks, not too long ago, that Aymeric Laporte was among the finest centre-backs in world football.
He has since fallen down the pecking order in Manchester, and with the emergence of Ruben Dias and the re-emergence of John Stones, that doesn't look set to change anytime soon.
And, according to various reports, Guardiola will not stand in Laporte’s way should the right offer materialise.
The 27-year-old was City's record signing when he joined from Athletic Bilbao in 2018, and he would command a similar fee should he leave.

Riyad Mahrez was imperious when he faced PSG in the Champions League semi-finals last season, and the Parisian-born Algerian international netted three goals against the French giants.
However, City have a surplus of attacking talent, and after Raheem Sterling's Euros, Mahrez could be on the chopping block.
But Mahrez may have other ideas: "What if I want to go higher? I do not see what is higher [than Manchester City].
"To try another championship [elsewhere]? No. I really love England and English football is wonderful. I don't want to leave. I still have goals to pursue here."
Gabriel Jesus has been long since rumoured to be leaving Manchester, and he has failed to live up to the hype he had once promised.
However, the departure of Sergio Aguero has lifted the hopes that the Brazilian could stick around at the Etihad for a little while longer.
City have reportedly slapped a £60/65million price tag on the 24-year-old, and Italy looks to be a likely destination if he should move – with both Inter Milan and Juventus tracking his progress
According to reports from Italy, the Old Lady are looking to see if they can bring in Jesus on loan.
Benjamin Mendy is arguably the most obvious candidate to leave Manchester this summer.
The Frenchman is now four years into his City career, and his time in the North-West has been plagued by injuries.
Mendy ultimately lost his spot to Oleksandr Zinchenko – who was originally makeshift left-back used for squad depth.
Mendy won't raise the same windfall as other names on this list, however, he is the most likely to search for pastures new this summer.
