In years to come, we may look back on the barren spell and wonder what took City so long to conquer Europe, but with that monkey off the back, the target must surely now be an unprecedented quadruple of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and EFL Cup.
bet365’s Steve Freeth said: "I know it’s never been done before, but gone are the days of Manchester City being a monster three-figure price to win the quadruple.
"If it wasn’t for Nathan Jones a few months ago, we could arguably be talking about it being landed in Istanbul, but having finally tasted Champions League success, you can see them continuing to dominate Europe’s top table for a while yet.
"The Citizens are bet365’s 2/1 favourites to retain their Champions League crown next season with Bayern Munich at 7/1, Real Madrid at 8/1 PSG 12/1 and Spanish giants Barcelona quoted at 12/1."
Of course, City have been touted for all four on more than one occasion in their recent history.
Once the Guardiola machine hit top speed in 2018, becoming the first team in English football history to reach 100 points, a treble – and even quadruple – looked ever more likely.
The remarkable upset in the FA Cup against Wigan scuppered their first serious treble bid, though they would complete the domestic treble the season after, being agonisingly dumped out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage against Tottenham, knowing that a semi-final tie with Ajax awaited.
An off campaign saw Liverpool crowned Premier League champions before City returned with a vengeance the following season. City were misfiring at the start of the season, but came good when it mattered, ousting rivals United and winning a fourth straight EFL Cup.
A first Champions League was within their grasp, facing Chelsea in the final, but the Blues – as they did in the FA Cup semi-final a month earlier – got the better of Guardiola’s men.
The treble was on the cards again in 2022, with semi-finals in the FA Cup against Liverpool and the Champions League against Real Madrid, but more European heartbreak followed; with Madrid needing two goals as they game entered stoppage time just to force another 30 minutes.
Los Blancos did just that, winning after extra-time as City’s wait continued.
There was no stopping them last time around, however. There was brief jeopardy regarding the title, but the moment Arsenal stopped being perfect, City swooped in. The title was won with three games to spare, and it allowed City to pick up one point from a possible six to close the season and finish on a relatively modest 89 points.
For 38-game seasons prior to City’s first title, the average points tally for the Premier League winner was 85.2. Since then it’s jumped up to 90.8, and barring Liverpool’s golden era, teams just don’t have 90-point seasons in them.
Such is City’s ludicrous squad depth, they’re able to field totally different XIs in the cup competitions and still at least reach the latter stages; in the last five seasons, they’ve made 14 trips to Wembley.
The Champions League was always the one that seemed to have a hold on City – and Guardiola. The Spaniard was routinely – and often fairly – accused of over-thinking knockout ties to his side’s demise, but this has been on the cards for a long time now.
The final defeat to Chelsea was an upset, and the loss to Real Madrid considering the position they were in was one of the most extraordinary things ever seen in the competition.
But there’s been no such drama this time. They blew Bayern away, and Real Madrid were miles off the pace in the semi-final. Inter, despite their best efforts, eventually succumbed too.
Looking ahead to this season's Champions League, City are priced up as 2/1 favourites.
Bayern Munich are 11/2 second favourites and have added Harry Kane to their ranks which will be a huge boost in their bid to conquer Europe for a seventh time.
PSG are out from 9/1 to 16/1 having lost Lionel Messi and Neymar and being drawn in the group of death.
City are currently 16/1 to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup in 2023/24 and based on what we’ve seen, it’s impossible to rule out back-to-back trebles, or even an unprecedented quadruple at 66/1.
