Another Top Player To Leave Man City, Follows Cole Palmer’s Footsteps

Man City have reportedly agreed a deal to offload another talented player and sell him to a Premier League rivals, Newcastle United.

Alfie Harrison might have a dream to follow in Phil Foden’s footsteps to become one of the best at the Etihad. However, that seems impossible as David Ornstein reported that there’s an agreement to sell the youngster during the ongoing transfer window.

Harrison has developed into one of the most talented players to watch out for in the future. He first joined Manchester City’s academy project at just nine-years-old, and his technical ability and passing skillset saw him progress through the club’s age-groups.

He was an important player for Man City’s under-18s squad during the 2022-23 season. He had 21 appearances for the team, scoring six goals and providing four assists in the process. He was with the squad until a transfer offer came from Newcastle United.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein, reveals that Newcastle United have now agreed a deal with Premier League champions to sign the highly rated midfielder in an ‘undisclosed fee’.

The report stated that it’s expected that he will undergo a medical with Newcastle in the coming days. Having trained with the first-team squad but not given chances to prove himself at the highest level, Harrison will become another academic player to leave Man City over lack of playing time.

Cole Palmer is a notable City academic player who left Man City for Premier League rivals. The Englishman who failed to secure regular matches for himself at the Etihad joined Chelsea last summer and has become an important player for his new club.

“My thing was to never leave City. That was not my intention. I wanted to go on loan for a year, come back and be ready for the first team,” Palmer told Sky Sport.

“But they said I couldn’t go on loan, either stay or you get sold. So then, Chelsea rang me. I said I wanted to go to Chelsea and I’m really happy to be here. I’m very glad I made the decision to come here.”
