Manchester City’s wantaway defender Eric Garcia is likely to remain at the club for the 2020/21 season – but three other youngsters are likely to leave on loan to gain experience, reports MEN’s Stuart Brennan.
Tosin Adarabioyo, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Philippe Sandler are all expected to go out on loan. Adarabioyo enjoyed a successful loan spell at Blackburn Rovers last season, but the English academy graduate does not appear to have done enough to earn a spot in Pep Guardiola’s plans.
Centre-back has been a sore spot in the City first team since the departure of club captain Vincent Kompany. While the club are in the market for a top class defender, they do have some young talent at their future disposal.
It now looks that Barcelona will wait another season to sign Spaniard Eric Garcia for free, and the previously reported departing John Stones will stay to fight for his place, leaving little room for the other young defenders in the first team squad.
