joined Man City from Leeds United this summer for around £42million but has only played 14 minutes this season due to his shoulder problem as he was forced to undergo surgery.

claims he is ready to make his full Man City debut.
Guardiola told his press conference:
“He’s always ready. He needed time for tactical aspects but he’s ready.”
“We have to see [if he will start] but I think he’s an intelligent player normally holding midfielders, so clever.
“He has indicated at Leeds with Bielsa the commitment of every training session and every game. But there are patterns and movements and you need game time.”
