Guidetti Eyes Summer City Exit

Guidetti Eyes Summer City Exit

Manchester City EDS top scorer John Guidetti has turned down a new contract to remain with the Citizens, choosing instead to leave the club as a free agent in the summer.

The Swedish striker netted a hattrick for City's Elite Development Squad in a convincing 4-0 victory over Stockport in the Manchester Senior Cup on Wednesday.

His form has led to the 19-year-old featuring on the bench in a number of games for Roberto Mancini's side, although the young Swede feels he can secure more playing time elsewhere.

Speaking to Sportbladet, Guidetti stated: 'It's a good contract but simply not good enough.

'There are better alternatives. My contract expires this summer and then it's time to move.

'It's a perfect situation. I am a striker who should play in one of the best leagues.'


The situation raises the question - why his contract was allowed to run down to just a few months before offering an extension?

What are your thoughts on Guidetti seeking a move? Is he the new 'Daniel Sturridge'?

Its a shame he's looking for pastures new but with a lad of his talent he needs to be playing competative footy. Good luck to him.

No idea why his contract was allowed to run down like it has. He is certainly a good prospect with a lot of confidence and determination to succeed. I'm sure he will do well wherever he ends up.

I expect he'll end up in the Championship to start off with eighthsin and then after that who knows.

Possibly, he is allowed to talk to other clubs now so i'm sure he has something lined up. Wouldnt rule out a move to somewhere like Serie A.

He has a big ego but is very good at EDS level, should have been given a chance instead of Woe... I mean Jo. I remember Juventus had an eye on him, I think he may go to Italy as he nearly went to Sampdoria instead of us. BTW, don't think we can lose him on a free at his age, there should be some decent compo like with the youngest mercenary ever, Sturridge (still wish he had stayed though).

Agreed regarding a compensation fee StuMCFC. At his age we would most certainly receive something.

This isn't really news - he said almost a year ago that he didn't want to wait around to try to force his way into the team and wouldn't sign a new contract. Clearly the club made an effort by offering him a new and improved deal, but if he won't take it, well then my advice to him is to avoid door/arse contact on the way out. Plenty more fish in the sea, and if he doesn't think he's good enough to force his way into the reckoning then let him go to Chelsea - I mean Bolton. See Ya!

Harry Bunn is making lightning fast progress at EDS level so should be able to fill Guidetti's shoes fast enough. He's only just been promoted from the academy to the reserves and is scoring plenty of goals already. Comparisons to Shearer may be a bit over the top but he really does look good at this level of his progression (and is a Mancunian lad + City fan so won't be in any hurry to leave).

If he is as good as he thinks he is we would not have allowed his contract to run out. Having said that I wish him all the very best at his new club.
