EPL: Steve McManaman gives verdict on Saka joining Arsenal’s rival
Former Liverpool player, Steve McManaman has said that Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka could fit in Manchester City’s squad should he eventually join the Premier League champions in the near future.
McManaman also said that he does not think Saka will move to Man City, adding that he would be surprised if Pep Guardiola’s side ended up signing the 20-year-old.
Saka has been linked with a transfer move to Manchester City in the past.
The England star’s current contract 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. I would be very surprised if they could get him, to be honest.
“He is an excellent player and he’s got experience in the Premier League, so he could probably fit in 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 for the club.”
