Three European Clubs To Target Phil Foden Who Could Only Cost Them £175,000
Phil Foden might have broken into Manchester City's senior team, but he's not been one of Pep Guardiola's regular choices for the starting XI.
It's not all bad news for the 18-year-old rising star, especially as he is attracting the attention of some big European clubs.
According to the Daily Mirror, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain have a keen interest in the 'Stockport Iniesta.'
It could be even more damaging for City to allow the youngster to leave, with all three clubs able to potentially poach him for as little as £175,000.
The England Under-21 footballer has only 20 months left on his contract, but if he does see through the remainder of his current deal, the payment to the club would only be €200,000.
City fans might be able to take solace in the news that Foden recently purchased a brand-new home for his parents in the Bramhall area of Stockport, meaning that he might be committed to his future at the reigning Premier League champions.
Last month, the City boss revealed the real reason that he didn't use Foden in the club's 3-0 win over Fulham.
"I feel guilty," he said. "He deserves to play. The problem was the injury to Sergio Aguero, we didn't want to take a risk.
"Phil Foden will play a lot of games this season -- I feel it. The guys after the game were so tired, we have games, games, games, he's going to play. I like him a lot.
"Every time he plays, he plays so good. He will play minutes."
