Man City stars head to dinner before pre-season tour as they prepare to vote on new captain – with clear favourite

MANCHESTER CITY stars got some pre-season bonding in at a swanky Gordon Ramsey restaurant.

City are set to jet out to Japan later today for the start of their pre-season tour, which will also take them to South Korea.

But a host of Sky Blues stars decided to spend some time with each other on Tuesday night ahead of their trip to The Far East.

Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Mateo Kovacic, Manuel Akanji, Nathan Ake, Stefan Moreno and Kevin de Bruyne all decided to brave the poor weather to nip out for a bite to eat.

The Prem stars donned their finery for a trip to the brand-spanking new Lucky Cat restaurant in Manchester.

The team’s new captain could very well have been the players’ topic of conversation.

City are currently without a skipper following Ilkay Gundogan‘s departure from the Etihad and subsequent move to Barcelona.

As has been the tradition in recent years, Pep Guardiola‘s troops are expected to vote for their new captain.

Guardiola, 52, guided City to a historic treble last season – winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.

And the Spaniard’s incredible achievement recently saw him lauded by Prem legend Wayne Rooney.

The former Manchester United man said: “Pep Guardiola has been one of the best things that has happened to English football.

“For the league and national team. Some of the coaching has really helped them develop as players.

“[Success] goes in cycles. Unfortunately it is Man City’s time.”

Manchester City will face Yokohama, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid in their pre-season tour.

Their defence of the Premier League title will begin on August 11 with a trip to Turf Moor to take on newly-promoted Burnley.
