Graeme Souness has questioned the decision to let Cole Palmer leave Manchester City last summer, suggesting that Pep Guardiola may not have rated the youngster highly enough. Despite Guardiola’s offer of more game time, Palmer chose to join Chelsea for better opportunities. Since his move, Palmer has excelled, becoming Chelsea’s best player with impressive stats and even a chance of going to the Euros with England.

Souness’ claim that City sold Palmer because Guardiola did not believe in his potential is questionable, as City typically do not stand in players’ ways when they request transfers. Palmer wanted more playing time and made the decision to leave in pursuit of that goal. Guardiola’s offer of more minutes may not have guaranteed the same level of exposure Palmer has received at Chelsea, where he has thrived.

Despite City’s willingness to let Palmer go, it is evident that he was valued within the club, with some players expressing sadness at his departure. Palmer’s success at Chelsea has proven that he has the potential to become a top-class player in the future. Ultimately, his decision to leave City for more playing time has paid off, and he is thriving in his new environment.
