Pablo ZABALETA has confirmed that he will be staying at Manchester City this season while Martin DEMICHELIS has found a new club.
After rumors that new Manchester City Pep GUARDIOLA would not be counting on ZABALETA for this season, ZABALETA has stated that he will be staying in England. ZABALETA, who was linked to a move to AS Roma, had this to say:
“I don’t know how many times I was away to Italy. It was incredible. Every day there was a new club. I’ve always been away from that because I knew from the first day it was my decision (to stay).”
“I had been told by the new manager that I was part of this squad for this season, so I am more than pleased for this because City was my priority.”
“I know I only have one year left on my contract, so that creates a lot of speculation about my future but I didn’t decide anything before I came back for pre-season to meet the manager and hear from him what was my situation.”
“I am so happy to be part of Manchester City for this season.”
Pablo ZABALETA’s former team mate at Manchester City, Martin DEMICHELIS, saw his contract run to an end at the club. DEMICHELIS is set to join Spanish club Espanyol.
