Man City expecting quiet transfer deadline day: Barcelona want Garcia but new signings unlikely
Manchester City are not expecting to add any new signings on transfer deadline day but there could be a number of exits.
Despite being available for around £23 million ($29m), City are set to stick withBenjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko as their options for the rest of the season.
Zinchenko was linked with a late move away before he picked up an injury after returning to first-team training and the Ukrainian is understood to want to stay at the Etihad Stadium and fight for his place.
His City team-mate Eric Garcia does want to leave the club but is waiting for Barcelona to improve their offer so he can make his preferred move back toCamp Nou.
Barca have so far fallenshort of reaching City’s valuation, with a £14m ($18m) bid already rejected but are expected to return with an improved offer.
The 19-year-old defender has just 12 months remaining on his current contract and can leave for nothing next summer after turning down a new deal.
Fellow central defender Tosin Adarabioyo is also expected to leave, with newly-promoted Fulham showing interest as they look to strengthen their backline.
The 23-year-old impressed on loan at Championship club Blackburn last season but is not part of Pep Guardiola’s plans having failed to make the squad in the opening five matches and could move on a permanent basis.
Winger Patrick Roberts is set for another loan move and is set to return to Middlesbrough where he had a brief spell at the end of the last season.
