Phil Foden is only 17 years of age, but Manchester City fans are already excited by the forward’s potential.
Manager Pep Guardiola is an admirer of the youngster as well having played Foden in 10 games in all competitions this season.
The teenager made five Premier League appearances – all as a substitute – and also started two Champions League games.
Foden already has a winning mentality having been part of the England Under-17 side that clinched the World Cup last year.
Due to the immense talent flowing through the City team, it is unlikely that the youngster will earn a regular starting spot next season.
With that in mind, sending Foden out on loan for the campaign would not be a strange suggestion.
However, it seems that plenty of City fans are against the idea of the teenager signing for West Ham United.
According to The Mirror, new manager Manuel Pellegrini, who coached City for three years between 2013 and 2016, could make a loan move for Foden this summer.
City fans hope that the club will not agree, with many citing Pellegrini’s lack of faith in Raheem Sterling during his time at the Etihad Stadium.

Not the right manager. He preferred old players to young, Bony over Dybala. Did well for one season, then drifted off. Leave him to fighting relegation at West Ham, Phil will become established and far better staying with Pep.
