SWP To Barcelona It Says Here
File under 'are you sure about that..?' Hacks at The Sun have suggested that the City winger is on the Catalan giant's radar but there is apparantly a contract issue with City...
It transpires that Ian Wright is a regular columnist for the news international multi million seller and has stated his dissatisfaction at SWP's contract situation with The Blues.
'Ever since Cook and Marwood came to the club they seem to be only interested in looking after players who are not really Man City people. Shaun is City through and through, but he has to feel appreciated.'
A clear dig at City CEO Garry Cook and City Football Administrator Brian Marwood. Cook is walking a fine line with a section of City fans as it stands and would do well to not cold shoulder our treasured MCFC Academy graduates.
There is of course never any smoke without fire and the merest suggestion of an unsettled SWP is enough to concern any diehard Blue. Ever since he returned to Manchester City, the player has been the heartbeat of the squad on many occasions despite recent injury and erratic form.
The City legend still has a few years to run on his current contract and is reported to be attempting to extend it.
Barcelona by Monday? Definitely maybe, but our Premier League rivals will be put on alert should the situation drag on.
More on this uncomfortable revelation through the weekend...
