The teenage striker was instrumental in City winning the U-23 league last season, scoring 24 goals and assisted 5 in a sensational year for the youngster.
Delap is one of City’s most exciting youth prospects. And next season could see the teenager play more first-team minutes after dominating Premier League 2.
The 18-year-old striker have been touted for a huge future in the game, having already made first-team appearances for the current English Premier League Champions.
According to The Daily Express, Millwall have entered the race to sign in-demand Manchester City striker this summer.
They face plenty of competition for the 18-year-old, with the likes of Middlesbrough, Derby County, Cardiff City, Bournemouth, Stoke City and Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid all monitoring Delap this summer.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have been sharing their thoughts and opinions.

Send him to Brighton on loan— Oliver 🇮🇹🇮🇹 (@Olly4756) June 29, 2021
Everyone is saying no, but I don’t know how you think a PL team is going to loan Delap and make him their no.1 striker for the season. You’re deluded if you think that’s on the cards. Harry Kane went on loan to Millwall when he was 19. Delap is only 18.— Chris Howard (@Chris_G_Howard) June 29, 2021
