‘We’re gonna lose him’, ‘Sell him if he wants to leave’ – Many fans react as PL Trio Interested in Man City’s ‘exceptional’ young talent


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims James McAtee is attracting interest from Premier League Trio.

The versatile 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who was born in Salford, has been in Manchester City’s academy for eight years, having first joined the club in 2013.

The City academy graduate, who Pep Guardiola once lauded as ‘exceptional’ as per the Manchester Evening News, is one of the most exciting names coming from the club.

The attacking midfielder was handed his senior by Guardiola in September last year in a Carabao Cup clash against League One side Wycombe Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium.

He has since featured in two more games for City this term but they now have a decision to make on his short-term future between now and the end of the month.

According to Daily Mail, James McAtee is attracting interest from Brighton, Leicester and Aston Villa, with the 19 year-old yet to agree a new contract at Man City.

The report adds that Championship quartet Bournemouth, QPR, Blackburn Rovers and Swansea City are all also interested in securing a loan deal for the Manchester City star.

As per the report, Pep Guardiola and Man City have asked James McAtee to be patient as he continues to learn from those around him but the prospect of playing first team football regularly is a big attraction.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
