Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola, is confident that after the departure of 33-year-old Spanish midfielder David Silva, he will be worthily replaced by 19-year-old Englishman Foden. Silva's deal expires next summer. The parties do not intend to extend it. Silva has been a member of the Manchester club since 2010, ESPN reported.
“We didn't give Foden a new contract by accident," Guardiola told The Sun. "He is the only player that can't be sold under any circumstances, the only one. Not even for €500m. Phil's going nowhere. Phil is City. We won't be signing anyone else for that position. When David Silva leaves, we know exactly who our new magician will be. He's grown up with us. He's one of us and he's going to be brilliant -- one of the Premier League's best."
Foden played in the Manchester City youth team in 2009-2017, and in November 2017 marked the debut in the main team.
