Manchester City defender waiting to meet club and agents over future – ‘Juicy offers’ expected from Champions League clubs



| Last Updated:


Highly-rated Manchester City and Brazil international right-back Yan Couto is waiting to meet the club and his agents to discuss his long-term future, according to reports.

There is a feeling in some quarters that the full-back positions are areas of Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad that Etihad Stadium officials could look to address in the coming summer transfer window.

With Jeremie Frimpong having excelled with Bayer Leverkusen throughout their Bundesliga-winning campaign, and some coming to terms with the age and deteriorating performances of club captain Kyle Walker, there is a natural exchange of options seemingly available.

However, one name closer to home is Yan Couto, who remains contracted to Manchester City and could yet come into their thinking having excelled during a hugely impressive campaign on-loan with Girona in their La Liga season.

According to the information of Mundo Deportivo, as translated and relayed by Sport Witness, Brazilian full-back Yan Couto is waiting to meet Manchester City and his representatives in order to find out more about his future beyond this season.

It is further detailed that the on-loan Girona defender has a market and will also have ‘juicy offers’ from clubs that can offer UEFA Champions League football from next season, although there is no mention of any specific suitors.

Yan Couto’s existing contract with Manchester City expires at the end of the forthcoming 2024/2025 season, and it remains unclear what stance Etihad bosses will take on a new deal, or whether they would like to send him next campaign.

With Girona having booked themselves in for a European campaign next season, Manchester City may see their City Football Group sister club as an attractive destination for Yan Couto once again.

Issa Kabore is another right-back profile that remains under the monitoring of Manchester City, after the defender played out the ongoing season with Premier League side Luton Town on loan from the Etihad Stadium.
