Manager not keen, PL clubs interested – midfielder could soon leave Man City [Opinion]

Yangel Herrera was a left-field option for Pep Guardiola when Fernandinho’s future was uncertain, but the Brazilian would go on to sign a new contract so Herrera was no longer needed.

A move away from the Etihad Stadium now looks on the cards. The 23-year-old has yet to make an appearance for City and The Sun say he has interest from Leeds United, Southampton and West Ham United, so a Premier League switch is possible.

Herrera joined from Atletico Venezuela in February 2017 and has spent the last four years out on loan – New York City FC (February 2017 – December 2018), SD Huesca (January 2019 – June 2019), Granada CF (July 2019 – June 2021) – impressing with the latter.
