Report: Vincent Kompany is now really ‘pushing’ to sign ‘special’ 21 y/o Man City gem on loan
It has been reported that Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is extremely keen on signing Manchester City youngster Cole Palmer on a season-long loan.
This comes from journalist Alan Nixon on Patreon, as the 21-year-old’s future is seemingly up in the air in the summer transfer window.
However, it seems like Vincent Kompany would fancy the arrival of Cole Palmer on loan at Burnley ahead of the following campaign
Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is ‘pushing’ for Cole Palmer loan deal from Manchester City
Branded as a player with ‘special quality’ by Pep Guardiola, the Englishman seems like the most natural replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who recently left the Sky Blues to sign for Al-Ahli.
However, with Palmer having been on the periphery of things at his boyhood club last season, there is a sense that a loan move may be on the cards for him to accelerate his development over the next term.
Now, it has been revealed that Burnley manager Vincent Kompany is ‘pushing strongly’ to secure a loan deal for Cole Palmer.
The Belgian tactician is interested in offering the silky technician regular first-team football in the Premier League.
To add to that, while Leicester City are also keen on Palmer’s signature, the Clarets are believed to be offering the ‘best platform’ for him to develop if his temporary exit is approved.
Manchester City should keep Cole Palmer next season
Even if Bernardo Silva ends up staying at Manchester City, it would be silly to loan Cole Palmer out to Burnley or any other club, as he profiles extremely similarly to Riyad Mahrez
Sure, the youngster is still quite a raw prospect but simultaneously, he is the only natural right-winger in City’s first-team and has barely been given a chance to shine on his preferred flank.
Unless the club have a potential signing in store to bolster the position, it would not make much sense to offload such a talented option in the upcoming campaign, albeit on loan.
