- City manager to talk to centre-back in the close season
- Teenager Eric García has played in defence recently
Pep Guardiola has admitted John Stones could leave Manchester City in the close season, with the manager planning to discuss the centre-back’s future with him then.
Stones, who joined in the summer of 2016, has endured a difficult campaign because of injury and loss of form and Guardiola said the 26-year-old’s confidence had been affected. Since football’s resumption Stones has yet to feature, though he was injured when City began again in mid-June.
