Manchester City star to leave, over differences during contract negotiations: report

Manchester City is facing the potential departure of one of their key players this summer as talks on a new contract have allegedly come to a standstill.

City achieved the treble last season and are currently in the running to duplicate that significant victory this season as they remain competitive in three different competitions.

On Saturday, the champions triumphed against Crystal Palace with a 4-2 victory at Selhurst Park. This win allowed them to temporarily match the current leaders, Liverpool, in the Premier League standings. Liverpool will face their arch rivals, Manchester United, in an away match on Sunday.

Since Ederson sustained an injury in early March, Stefan Ortega has emerged as a crucial player for the Sky Blues in recent weeks.

Conversations on a fresh agreement for the German goalkeeper have allegedly failed and the 31-year-old may now be on track to leave during the summer.

Ortega transferred to Manchester City from Arminia Bielefeld in the summer of 2022 and has played in 28 matches for the club over the course of two seasons.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the goalie has lately acquired a property in Hamburg, however it is believed to have been purchased as an investment.

According to FourFourTwo, it would be more advantageous for City to retain Ortega. The German goalkeeper has always served as a dependable substitute for Ederson during his tenure at the club, and it is probable that a new contract will be reached eventually.
