Manchester City: Fans flock to James McAtee update -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

Flocking to Twitter, a number of Manchester City fans have shared their views in response to a claim on the future of promising youngster James McAtee.

One of the major themes of optimism at City over the 2021/22 season has been the sheer amount of talent coming through, with a plethora of starlets having made their senior debuts under Pep Guardiola.

Indeed, the Spaniard handed many previously unseen youngsters their first Sky Blue cameos against Wycombe Wanderers in the Carabao Cup as he keeps one eye on City’s prospering academy. Cole Palmer is the main starlet to be turning plenty of heads since his introduction to the first team fold this season, but the future of another promising attacker in McAtee faces uncertainty.

The 19-year-old, who has drawn comparisons with club legend David Silva and scored 38 goals in 76 appearances for City’s youth teams, still hasn’t put pen to paper on a new deal which expires in 2023, so club and player may soon need to decide the next step.

Sharing the latest on City’s plans for McAtee, Wales Online reporter Ian Mitchelmore has claimed that the Sky Blues view Swansea as a place where he can develop his game on loan.

The Championship club are keen to take him in January, with City just as eager for the teenager to get more senior minutes under his belt – seemingly pulling a U-turn after opting against sending McAtee out on loan a few months ago.

However, as per this report, his precarious contract situation is a crucial factor to a potential move away and a decision may either need to be made soon or, at the latest, next summer.

Flocking to this claim, many Sky Blues supporters are sweating over McAtee’s future and want to see him tied down to a contract extension as soon as possible, with some fearing that they may lose him and that this potential loan could come as his first step out the exit door.

Check out some of their verdicts from Twitter below.
