Manchester City Join Umar Sadiq Chase

Manchester City Join Umar Sadiq Chase

Manchester City have reportedly joined five other European clubs in showing an interest in UD Almeira striker Umar Sadiq, and have already outlined their plan should they secure the player.

The 24 year-old centre-forward has been impressing in the second division of Spanish football since his arrival last year, and his form in front of goal has already caught the attention of clubs at a higher level of European football.

One of those clubs is reportedly Manchester City, who are known to be in the market for a new striker following the departure of Sergio Aguero to FC Barcelona earlier this year.

However, their plans according to the latest report do not align themselves with bringing in Umar Sadiq to replace the legendary Argentine immediately.

According to the information in Spanish newspaper AS, Manchester City have ‘set their sights’ on UD Almería’s Umar Sadiq, with his currently employers demanding a fee of €30 million.

The report explains how this is largely due to the player having a substantial release clause of €60 million embedded into his active contract, which runs until the summer of 2025.

Despite the substantial spend that the 24 year-old striker could command this summer, it is reported that Manchester City’s plan is to sign the player immediately, before sending him on loan to City Football Group club Troyes in France, before having Sadiq back in their Premier League squad for the 2022/2023 campaign.

    … If this guy venture no look well go Man City him career go end. He should learn from Kayode Olanrewaju. If I was one of his advisers… He should remain in Spain and join Valencia, Sevilla and such kinds of modest teams…. Grow his game and consilolidate on previous seasons’ success… he won’t play in Manc City…

    • Jimmy, I agree that moving to Man City (and his immediate loaning to Girona) cost Olanrewaju Kayode a place in Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup squad. I really would advise Sadiq Umar to seek his career advancement in Spain where his style seems better suited.

    This will be to me the silliest move if ventured. Sadiq must now realize, it’s come to the moment for him to establish himself in a reputable clubside, where he has to etch his identity, and be counted amonst the likes of Mbappe, Haaland, Osimene, Rashford, Kane etc etc.Enough of this never ending loan moves, perpetuated by self serving agents,

    What a nonsense proposed move!

    Sadiq should not even think about this offer for once! If man city really value Sadiq that much why can’t they sign him directly to their first team.

    So,to man city Sadiq is not yet matured enough to play in premiership with them yet even with his 28goals plus about 10assist status?

    Many at times this Nigerian players will just fall person hand with a retrogressive move even after good and a wonderful season.

    He should be careful with such a move. That was how Manchester City screwed Olanrewaju Kayode and till this day we don’t hear from him .

    There are clubs willing to give him much audience to display his skills but Manchester City I don’t trust them at all

  • These guys are funny. They want to buy him, loan him out then resell him for a bigger amount. Not gonna happen. Look elsewhere

  • Sodiq is a very good striker….his kind is rear hence the demand….He has a very wonderful foot work….He has a frightening pace and knows how to enter into spaces….He is calm in his finishing….I think he should find a club he can call home and settle down so he can face his football….A midtable Laliga club like Valencia will do him a lot of Good.

    Quality has no hiding place..! Bayern, Man City, Sevilla, Villareal, Valencia….all for a 2nd division striker. But some people’s goal demons can only attract Brighton and WestHam…LMAO. The director of football of these big clubs must be blind.

    I cant just wait for this guy to finally debut in the SE.

    Sadiq respect yourself, avoid Man City like a covid 19 patient and self isolate your blossoming career in Spain. You are built for Spanish football….sleek, fluid and full of flair. With Spanish trained midfielders playing behind you, your tap can never run dry. You will be a star in any of Valencia, Sevilla or Villareal…that I am 100% sure of.

      @Dr.Drey… I have said my last payers for goaldemon… Since I read somewhere that he has preferably narrowed his move to England and btw Brighton & Hove and West Ham… I just comot hand for Paulo matter… I thought the dude will fancy France, Italy or Germany…where his
      game to me will be better served for slower pace. Well if Paulo goes to Premier League… he is on his own…
