Ireland underage worldwide called up to Manchester City squad

Ireland underage worldwide called up to Manchester City squad

Gomes can't officially join City until he turns 18 on Monday, but is training with the City squad and Guardiola has been impressed by what he has seen - and hinted the exciting France under-18 midfielder could play a role next season, like Foden and Brahim.

But after the arrival of Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea, the 26-year-old opted to follow his old boss from Napoli to Stamford Bridge.

"It would have been a mistake for him if he came and he wanted to go to Chelsea with Maurizio Sarri".

"We tried but my advice always is that players should go where they want".

"English football receives an exceptional player". All the best for him.

Hart, the former England goalkeeper, has spent the last two seasons on loan - first with Torino, then West Ham United - and has not featured in a game for City since August 2016.

A number of City's stars are absent for the pre-season fixture following the World Cup in Russian Federation. "If not, he will stay here", Guardiola said.

"We will decide until the last day", Pep said of new signings, not ruling out further additions.

"The players come back, try to do the basics and with the intention to make a good season".

"Manchester City players and staff departed for the club's summer tour of the USA earlier (on Tuesday)", City confirmed on their official website.

The Premier League champions will play Borussia Dortmund in Chicago on Friday, July 20, before heading to NY to play Liverpool on Wednesday, July 25, and then finishing their trip with a match against Bayern Munich in Miami on Saturday, July 28. If the days before they are exhausted and they don't want to fight for the Community Shield, play at Arsenal, then stay on holidays.

"I know it's not easy for him given what's happened in the last period. I can't say why certain decisions were made".
