Good news for the Manchester City’s coffers as Patrick Roberts is set to join Norwich on loan.
We think we’re past the days of expecting anything good to come from Patrick Roberts at Manchester City, and now it’s just a case of showcasing his talents to increase his stock for a future sale.
“The clubs are in the process of agreeing a season-long loan,” an Etihad source has revealed to The Sun.
Roberts has impressed in the past winning three Scottish titles at Celtic and spent the previous season at Girona, where he made 21 appearances in all competitions for the relegated La Liga side.
For one reason another (monetary we expect) City are prepared to let him get regular top-flight football away from the club, which in all honesty, is good news for all those involved. After all, if Leroy Sane struggles to get into the current squad, then what chance does Roberts have?
Norwich are apparently in the mind that the youngster can compete for a starting spot in Farke’s team and join the long list of young talents at the German’s disposal including Ben Godfrey, Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis.
With just a single year believed to be left on Roberts’ current contract, it is his last chance to impress his employers or anyone else monitoring his situation, for that matter, before he is released into the unknown. And both parties will undoubtedly have their fingers crossed for very different reasons.
