Manchester City striker to leave on FREE transfer… despite multi-million deal to join Etihad club five years ago



| Last Updated:


The Etihad Stadium is set to wave farewell to a multi-million signing on a free transfer in the coming weeks, according to a new report.

That concerns the future of Slobodan Tedic, who Manchester City agreed a deal to sign back in 2019 from Belgrade-based FK Cukaricki, with a transfer fee understood to be in the region of €3 million attached to the deal.

While it was initially reported that Tedic would go on to compete for a spot in Manchester City’s U23 games, the player would go on to complete a total of four loan moves away from the Etihad Stadium as they looked to develop his talents.

Following a return to FC Cukaricki upon agreeing to join Manchester City, Tedic went on to fulfil temporary deals with Dutch side PEC Zwolle, as well as English Football League sides Barnsley and Charlton Athletic.

Now that attachment to the Premier League champions is set to come to an abrupt end, with Manchester City unwilling to retain the services of Tedic beyond the January transfer window, after recalling the player from Charlton.

According to the information of Nogomania, striker Slobodan Tedić is set to re-join FK Čukarički on a free transfer having agreed to sign a two-year contract with the Serbian club from Manchester City.

Elsewhere and Manchester City are firmly in the mode of recruiting young talents to maintain their supply of rising stars for the coming years, with the signing of LA Galaxy’s Alex Alcala and River Plate’s Claudio Echeverri having been completed.

It follows on from the recent trend of Manchester City academy players moving into the first-team squad, with Norway international Oscar Bobb becoming the latest player to complete the transition and cement himself as a firm part of Pep Guardiola’s side.
