There’s a lot of uncertainty over Liam Delap’s future at Manchester City this summer. The highly rated youngster and has proven himself at youth level, so decisions need to be made on how best to develop him this season.
Pep Guardiola has previously stated that the striker will “be with us next season, training every day”, and City fans were eagerly anticipating watching Liam Delap during the club’s pre-season preparations.
However, due to the injury, the forward disappointingly sat out of the pre-season period courtesy of a problem with his right foot. Fresh reports indicate that Liam Delap has now overcome his fitness problems.
As per The Secret Scout via City Xtra, Delap is “fully fit and back in training” ahead of Saturday’s fixture with Norwich City, although it appears unlikely that the striker will feature in the match.
The 18-year-old is an exceptional talent and this season will be crucial for his development as he looks to make that step up to senior-level football.
The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
