The summer transfer window is as always, going to be an interesting time at Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola has already said he is looking to bring in two outfield players. Hey, fine, we sort of know who they will be anyway.
One of many conundrums Pep must have, and I’m not going to even mention the likes of farmed out Patrick Roberts, Jason Denayer etc. is what to do with his on loan keeper Angus Gunn.

By all accounts Angus is playing a blinder at Norwich City. He is highly regarded by the England U21 set-up and is fast emerging as one of the brightest England keepers in the country. For example, the 22-year-old Gunn has kept 15 clean sheets in 43 appearances at the Championship club this season. Not too shabby in anyone’s book.
Gunn’s loan period expires at the end of the season, while his City contract runs until June 2020.

We hear Celtic are keeping close tabs on Angus while Norwich are going to try and move heaven and earth to sign the 1.92m tall keeper as soon as the window opens.
One thing we do know is that Pep is going to stick with Ederson as his first choice shot-stopper, and rightly so. But the question is, will Claudio Bravo put up with being a backseat driver or will he want to call time on his short City career?
I would suggest Claudio will want away in the summer (lack of playing time and playing second fiddle to Ederson) and if that is the case I wouldn’t blame him. He, in my opinion is better than being a number two. PSG by all accounts have been sniffing around Bravo’s backroom team and so hey, if I was him I would grab the opportunity by the balls and head to France. Or anywhere for that matter.
I am not an anti-Bravo City fan but I do feel nervous when Pep fields him in domestic cup competitions. And I believe I am not the only one who feels something similar.
We have a budding City future number one keeper on our books and I for one would applaud Pep if he were to bring Angus back into the City fold.
