Manchester City could activate Mooy buy-back clause, fans react

Pep Guardiola has a string of talented stars at his disposal at Manchester City.

After winning the Premier League title, the club were expected to raid the market for more top stars, but it has been a slow start.

Guardiola is yet to bring in a new face, but they have been linked to numerous players, including Napoli midfielder Jorginho.

Another midfielder that has made the gossip pages is Aaron Mooy, who has already been on City’s books.

The Australian international spent a year at the club between 2016 and 2017 following a switch from sister club Melbourne City.

Mooy did not play a single minute for the North-West outfit before joining Huddersfield Town.

Last season, the midfielder made 36 appearances in the Premier League, scoring four goals and creating three assists.

Now, ESPN are reporting that City are considering activating a £20m buy-back clause in Mooy’s contract.

In reaction to the news, some City fans have made the bizarre suggestion that the Australian is a better option than Ilkay Gundogan.

Others, though, have been left baffled by the reports.
