Manchester City FC accepted the offer made by Wolverhampton, which is eager to buy the Ukrainian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko. Mirror wrote that, specifying that the Citizens agreed to sell him for 16 million pounds.
While the deal apparently suits Man City, the 21-year-old native of Zhytomyr region, northern Ukraine, clearly wants to stay. Zinchenko plans to keep training with Josep Guardiola's team, even though he does not have enough game practice for now.
'To be honest, I think Manchester City is one of the best teams in the world right now. Everyone dreams of playing here, and that goes for me as well. I try to learn every single day and I’m going to fight here. I’m ready for everything because I have to be professional. You don’t know what can happen in the future, but I’m dreaming of staying here', he said.
This spring, Manchester City became champions in the FA Premier League, with Zinchenko contributing to their victory. He earned a praise from the head coach, who at least once described him as 'outstanding'.
Oleksandr Zinchenko, the midfielder of Ukraine's national team, signed the deal with Man City in summer 2017. He debuted in December 2017, gradually gaining his place on the pitch - as well as the attention of the local press.
