Although Pep Guardiola appears to be waiting for the summer transfer window to splash the cash on high quality players, there is always the possibility of a few exits. Who could leave the Etihad on deadline day?
Papers have reported that Everton are looking to finalize a deal for young City defender Tosin Adarabioyo before the January window closes. The 19-year-old has wonderful potential and would be a devastating loss, especially for those who admire the youth teams. The Manchester local has not yet come to an agreement for an extension to his contract, which expires in only six months. It seems likely that the youngster is on his way out of the club before getting an opportunity to truly make his mark.
Rumors are flying over the future of young Kelechi Iheanacho after being left out of the squad for City’s FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace. Reports suggest he could be subject to a loan spell, but this is extremely unlikely. Iheanacho has proven that he can earn points for Manchester City on his own and is too important to the squad for a loan spell. His growth will continue in a Sky Blue shirt alongside new arrival Gabriel Jesus.
Overall, Tosin Adarabioyo is the only realistic name set for a departure from the Sky Blue side of Manchester on deadline day. All talk of Iheanacho leaving is completely untrue. City’s January window will remain rather uneventful.
