After joining from Barcelona in 2017, the youngster became involved with the first team over the course of the 2018/19 season, with his appearances limited to cup competitions. This season, however, the young centre-back has received a Premier League debut and featured in the Champions League alongside a regular place in the Carabao Cup squad.
SPORT claim that despite his lack of experience, he is considered a part of the reigning champions’ first-team, rather than an 18-year-old academy player who is simply training and gaining experience with them.
For some time, the club has been in contact with his representatives about a contract renewal. The discussions are expected to step up in the coming weeks, and the Manchester City hierarchy believe he will have no issue in committing his future to the club.
The former Barcelona academy youngster last signed an extension in July 2018, with said deal expiring in 2022.
