Don Hutchison believes he knows why Man City might let go of Cole Palmer

Manchester City

Pundit, Don Hutchison, has made a compelling argument for why Manchester City might be selling Cole Palmer to Chelsea.

According to a rumour from yesterday, the Cityzens and the west London club have reached an agreement for the winger. Transfer fee will be somewhere between £40 million and £45 million.

After that, Don Hutchison, made the remark about the reason the treble winners allegedly opted to sell the Englishman.

Don Hutchison talks about the Cole Palmer situation

In a recent video uploaded to the ESPN FC YouTube channel, Don Hutchison discussed the potential reasons why City would let Cole Palmer depart the club.

Don Hutchison said:

“I’ll try and be kind here, from what I hear, I think he’s not great away from the training ground. That might be a reason why they might be selling him.”

This does not imply that anyone at the club is concerned about Palmer’s ability on the pitch away from the training ground. Palmer has made 41 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s team in all competitions.

In truth, the winger has demonstrated this season that he is capable of contributing in big games by scoring against Arsenal in the Community Shield. Palmer also scored the equalising goal that helped Man City defeat Sevilla on penalties in the Super Cup.

The reason the club wants to sell the 21-year-old to Chelsea is likely due to the fact that they couldn’t refuse such a hefty transfer fee for a player who isn’t a regular starter.

Palmer is also prepared to play in the No. 10 position. It is also rumoured that Pochettino plans to use Palmer in a role similar to how Pep Guardiola used Phil Foden at Palmer’s current squad.

Hopefully, Cole Palmer, will get the chance to show Don Hutchison and anybody else who doubts his talent. Palmer will look to prove that he is more than just a training-ground player if he decides to join Chelsea.
