Oscar Bobb transfer window plans revealed following Manchester City’s Cole Palmer decision in 2023



| Last Updated:


Manchester City’s summer transfer window plans surrounding highly-rated forward talent Oscar Bobb have been detailed in a new report this week.

The Premier League champions have often seen great worth in sending out their finest young talents elsewhere for much-needed top-level game time and experiences, but it appears as though that rule or approach will not be applied to Oscar Bobb.

The last few summer transfer windows have seen Manchester City sanction a number of deals of such nature, with James McAtee re-joining Sheffield United for this season’s Premier League campaign, whilst Issa Kabore also moved elsewhere in the top-flight at Luton Town.

City officials believe first-team experiences and training under Pep Guardiola for another campaign will be the best route forward when it comes to Oscar Bobb however, with a new report detailing the plans ahead of the upcoming market.

That is according to the information of ManchesterWorld’s Michael Plant, who reports that Manchester City academy graduate and senior Norway international Oscar Bobb will not be leaving the Etihad Stadium this summer.

While Manchester City have shown a willingness to sanction loan agreements or permanent moves with buy-back clauses, the report states that Bobb will not be leaving on a short-term deal or a permanent agreement.

Instead, the 20-year-old will once again be ‘given time’ to develop in Manchester City’s first-team squad, according to the same report, regardless of how Etihad Stadium bosses may do business in the upcoming summer transfer window in terms of arrivals.

Bobb has seen his first-team opportunities dramatically increase this season, with Cole Palmer’s big-money move to Chelsea last summer opening up a space in the first-team Etihad Stadium squad for a young name.

Across 25 appearances for Manchester City in all competitions, Oscar Bobb has scored two goals and providing a further two assists, with his most notable moment coming in the Premier League and the scoring of a late winner against Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Back in late February, in recognition of his impressive rise in performances and development under Pep Guardiola, Manchester City issued Oscar Bobb with a new five-year contract and a tripled salary to around £50,000-per-week.
