Man City does not want to sell the “special” 20-year-old jewel to a Premier League team

According to rumours, James McAtee would not be sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers by Man City this summer. According to the Daily Mail, he acknowledged being concerned about his future a month ago. Although, he initially believed he would remain at City for this season.

It’s realistic to assume that Man City have no interest in such a deal but we have to wait and see whether Wolves are able to sign James McAtee.

City will not sell James McAtee

The 20-year-old is seen to be one of the Sky Blues’ most gifted youth products. Pep Guardiola (via The Star) describes James McAtee to be “special”.

The young player, a deft midfielder by trade, made a big impression last year when Man City loaned him to Sheffield United. He played a key factor in their promotion to the Premier League.

It has now been claimed that Wolves are interested in signing Manchester City’s talented youngster James McAtee. However, Wolves don’t want to relate him to the one involving Matheus Nunes.

The treble-winners do not intend to sell the teenager in the long run. Man City see him as a future starter.

James McAtee himself is interested in a loan move to Ajax. Hence, City might be willing to send him to a team where they believe he will develop the fastest.

James McAtee might stay at Man City

First off, even a loan to Wolves might not be wise for James McAtee because Man City would be selling him to a team that might not make the playoffs this year.

McAtee should be loaned out to a team that follows a similar philosophy to the Sky Blues. At the very least, to a team where he can play with ample freedom.

But in any event, the lifelong supporter of Man City needs to be protected at all costs since he is a very special talent who could someday start in midfield for the first team.
