Defender with 37 appearances for Manchester City eyes Etihad Stadium exit this summer



| Last Updated:


Manchester City transfer bosses are likely to entertain offers and proposals for first-team defensive option Sergio Gomez this summer, according to a new report.

The 23-year-old has found himself on the peripheries of Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad since joining Manchester City from RSC Anderlecht in 2022, often featuring in cup competition matches and as a late substitute.

Gomez has continued that trend into the ongoing 2023/24 campaign, and has registered just 14 appearances across all competitions amounting to 434 minutes, but providing an assist in the Premier League.

Given the player’s youth and understandable ambitions in the game, the latest report on Gomez’s future points towards an imminent exit from the Etihad Stadium, but perhaps an opportunity to remain in the Premier League.

That is according to the information of FootballTransfers’ Steve Kay, who reports that Sergio Gomez is now looking to leave Manchester City during the upcoming summer transfer window, and the Etihad club have already held talks about one potential route out.

It is claimed that as part of discussions with Wolverhampton Wanderers over Rayan Ait-Nouri, Manchester City have included the possibility of involving Gomez in a player-plus-cash swap deal for the Molineux left-back.

Gomez rose through FC Barcelona’s youth academy, spending eight years with the La Liga giants before moving to the Bundesliga and Borussia Dortmund. Three years with the German side then resulted in a move to work under Vincent Kompany at RSC Anderlecht.

The former Manchester City captain’s glowing reviews of the player and his versatility to play across the midfield, forward line, and left-back led to Etihad Stadium officials investing in the player’s future.

What the future holds for Gomez into next season remains unknown, and it also remains to be seen whether Manchester City would prefer retaining the player’s signature by sanctioning a temporary exit, or whether a permanent move would be targeted.
