Speaking in his press conference, Man City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko could be out for around ‘2-3′ weeks as he has picked up an injury again – coming after the Sky Blues’ resounding 3-0 Carabao Cup last 16 win at Burnley on Wednesday evening.
A brace from Raheem Sterling and a first goal for new summer signing Ferran Torres helped Guardiola’s side to victory at Turf Moor, responding correctly after a dismal 5-2 Premier League defeat at home to Leicester City.
In what has been a fairly optimistic few days since the thrashing, with City completing a £65 million swoop for Ruben Dias before cruising into the League Cup quarter-finals, Zinchenko’s fitness issues could scupper an all-important deal for a new left-back.
Mundo Deportivo journalist Francesc Aguilar hinted that signing Ajax star Nicolas Tagliafico could rely on offloading the Ukrainian to Barcelona, potentially on a loan deal.
Do Man City need to sign Tagliafico?
Yes, Mendy nowhere near good enough
No, Cancelo can play left-back
Now, the 23-year-old’s spell on the sidelines could spell danger for a Tagliafico move, prompting these Sky Blues to curse their luck in outrage on social media – find all of their best comments down below.
Sell, Sell and Sell. Get him out of my club!
