A total of six players from the first-team and U23s could leave Manchester City at the end of their contracts next summer – Nathaniel Ogbeta, Eric Garcia, Fernandinho, Adrian Bernabe, Felix Nmecha and Sergio Aguero.
Where will Manchester City finish this season?
Ogbeta joined City at the age of 10 and has worked his way up from the youth side to the fringes of the first-team in nine years.
The ball-playing central defender, who is currently operating at left-back, has made 29 appearances for the U18s, 12 appearances for the U19s and 41 appearances for the U23s.
Ogbeta’s contract is up in the coming months, however, so it remains to be seen if he has a future at the Etihad Stadium.
The 19-year-old has made four appearances this season, but he’s spent the majority of the campaign as an unused substitute or out of the matchday squad, so he wants out in 2021.
We’re trying to cash in before his contract expires and a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid could be on the cards.
The 35-year-old has been a terrific servant, but he’s renewing his contracts on a 12-month basis due to his advancing age. This might be his last, however. Time will tell.
The 19-year-old attacking-midfielder has featured once in our senior squad this season and makes the bench most weeks, so he should have a future.
Nmecha has spent eight years in our academy and has gone on to make 28 appearances (11 goals, 7 assists) for the U18s, 11 appearances (1 goal, 2 assists) for the U19s, 30 appearances (9 goals, 3 assists) for the U23s and two appearances in the first-team.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has made one appearance at senior level this season while making the bench multiple times. Nmecha may also have a future here.
The 32-year-old has won four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and five EFL Cups in his nine years at the Etihad Stadium, but this season may be his last.
Aguero has spoken about seeing out his contract and returning to Argentina, so his departure could be months away.
