Steve McManaman gives verdict on Saka joining Arsenal’s rival
Bukayo Saka of Arsenal could fit into Manchester City's lineup, according to former Liverpool player Steve McManaman, should he decide to sign with the Premier League champions in the near future.
Saka won't be moving to Manchester City, according to McManaman, who added that he would be surprised if the 20-year-old ended up joining Pep Guardiola's team.
Saka has previously been connected to a transfer to Manchester City.
The current contract of the England player at the Emirates is set to expire in 2024.
“I don’t know if Manchester City will be able to sign Bukayo Saka,” McManaman told horseracing.net.
“The relationship between the two clubs seems strong due to the fact that Manchester City let Arsenal sign Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus."
“He is a young and very talented English player. To be honest, I would be very surprised if they could get him.
“He is an excellent player and he’s got experience in the Premier League, so he could probably fit into their team right away."
“If Manchester City lose Bernando Silva next summer, then that would be a big blow, but I think Pep Guardiola would let him go if he really wanted to leave because of his services to the club.”
