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.
There are plenty of competition for the 18-year-old, with the likes of Middlesbrough, Derby County, Cardiff City, Bournemouth, Millwall, Stoke City and even Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid all monitoring Delap this summer.
But according to Richard Cawley, the Premier League champions want Delap in and around their first-team squad next season, and that may indicate that he will get more chances after his development squad exploits.
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.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have been sharing their thoughts and opinions.
