Man City’s first choice goalkeeper Ederson has been linked with Saudi Pro League clubs this entire transfer window. The club won’t stand in the way of the 30-year-old in case he wants to leave.

Instead of seeking a direct replacement, Pep Guardiola has placed his trust in Stefan Ortega to become the main goalkeeper. The 31-year-old German recently extended his contract with City until 2026. If Ederson departs, City plans to bring in a goalkeeper to serve as a backup to Ortega.
