The 2016/17 season may have only just ended – but attention is already turning to the new campaign.

And with Manchester City already active in the transfer market, it looks set to be an exciting summer at the Etihad Stadium.

Bernardo Silva has agreed to join the Club on July 1 when the transfer window officially open, with Pep Guardiola trying to assemble a side capable of making an impact in all four major competitions in 2017/18.

Before the new season gets under way, though, there are plenty of key dates to look out for. So here is a handy guide to everything you need to look out for over the coming weeks.

June 

14th: Premier League fixtures released.

The preliminary list of all 380 Premier League fixtures are announced next week at 9am on June 14.

Many of them will be subject to change throughout the season once Sky and BT Sport have chosen which games they want to televise but we'll soon know who we play first, who we face during the Christmas period and what our run-in looks like.
