20-year-old Manchester City midfielder to leave for FREE this summer – Bundesliga clubs circling for signature



| Last Updated:


Manchester City are set to lose their highly-rated Academy midfield talent Josh Adam on a free transfer this summer, as clubs from across Europe circle for his signature.

The Scottish youth international first made the switch to the City Football Academy from Scottish Premier League giants Celtic in 2020 and has impressed coaching staff across age groups in various levels of the club’s youth system.

Such is the highly-rated nature of Josh Adam’s game that the versatile midfielder has often been asked to train with Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad, and joined the Manchester City senior side as recently as Thursday ahead of the meeting with Wolves.

However, having spent the last two season’s operating under Brian Barry-Murphy within Manchester City’s Elite Development Squad, Adam is now keen to take the leap into regular senior football, and as such moving away from the Etihad Stadium.

As per the information of Jack Gaughan, writing in the latest edition of MailSport’s Man City Notebook this week, Josh Adam is set to leave Manchester City on a free transfer at the end of the ongoing season.

It is stated that the 20-year-old midfielder wants to ‘challenge himself in the senior game’, and there is reportedly early interest from clubs in both the Bundesliga and Belgian Pro League, with Adam himself said to be ‘enthused’ at the prospect of moving out onto the continent.

Josh Adam’s father has already confirmed a move away from Manchester City, after he penned a heartfelt message on his personal social media channel at the back end of last month.

Posting on X, formerly known as Twitter, Allan Adam stated, “Good luck today son in your last game for Man City. Been a quick four years.”

Elsewhere and Manchester City’s hunt for the next best talent in the youth football scene continues, as they expect to welcome senior Brazil international winger Savio to the Etihad Stadium this summer from Troyes and an excellent loan spell with Girona.
