Manchester City are internally confident that teenage talent James McAtee could play first-team football next season, with the midfielder currently impressing out on loan with Sheffield United. According to the Manchester Evening News, there is a growing sense amongst those at City that McAtee could make the step up next season and play regular football at a Premier League level, with the youngster experiencing his first taste of the senior game this campaign out in the Championship.
Manchester City are at the risk of failing to qualify for the Champions League, according to manager Pep Guardiola.
The incredible admission from the manager comes as his team struggles to put together a run of form that would see them challenge for the title. Manchester City have suffered some disappointing results like the 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Everton and the 2-2 draw with Tottenham in which they lost a two-goal lead. As a result, they are outside the contention for the title. While being unable to win the title in his debut campaign will not be seen as a major catastrophe, failure to qualify for the Champions League next season will head to the club quite hard.
