Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta expects to see plenty more changes at the club over the years to come.
The Argentina international joined City a day before the club was bought by Sheikh Mansour in 2008.
The rapid turnover of big-money players that followed brought accelerated progress that culminated in Premier League title success last season.
Just a handful of players remain from the pre-takeover era but the consistent Zabaleta has survived and admits the transformation from then has been remarkable.
The 28-year-old said: "Of course it is different because there are more talented players here now and I say that with a lot of respect to the players who have been here before.
"Since 2008 the club has been changing players every year - there's only a few players left in the team from 2008 - me, Vincent (Kompany), Joe Hart and Micah (Richards).
"But that is all part of the new era for Manchester City, we expect to continue to do better."
