Well, it appears he could have the opportunity to ply his trade in Italy.

The Stockport teenage sensation is reportedly subject to interest from Juventus, who are also tracking the progress of another budding English talent in the shape of Jadon Sancho.

Italian outlet Tuttosport claim Juventus are planning for the future, and have added both Foden and Sancho to their transfer wish list.

Foden has featured in five games across all competitions this season under Guardiola, and recently netted his first goal for the club against Oxford United in the Carabao Cup.

He remained at the club despite reports linking him with a loan move away.

Unlike Sancho who left Manchester City. He departed the clubs youth academy by venturing to Germany.

He signed a deal with Borussia Dortmund, and is tearing it up in the Bundesliga not to mention in the Champions League.

The 18-year-old attacker is getting regular game time at Borussia Dortmund and is living up to his potential.
