John Guidetti makes 'play me or sell me' warning to Man City

Feyenoord striker John Guidetti can't guarantee staying with parent club Manchester City.

After this season's success at Feyenoord, the super Swede has no interest in a bit-part role at City.

"I don't know what Man City are thinking but I want to play football," Guidetti told the Daily Mail.

"If I can't play at Manchester City - I'm a young boy - then I'll have to play somewhere else. If I am going to be given a chance at City then I have to be on the same level as the other boys. If I'm given No 68, then I don't have a chance of playing. I have to see what comes up. Maybe I'll get a chance to go to a big team that will give me No 9 or No 10 and say, 'OK, we're ready to pay you this money'.

"I don't care about the money but in football it shows where you are. It says, "This is how much we believe in giving you this chance". And I want the chance. I don't want to be a reserve at City, I can't be. I have to be honest with people, I'm not going to lie.

"I'm not saying City should do this or that, maybe they don't want me - they can get any player in the world. Their wealth is extreme. Maybe they want Van Persie or Messi. Those two are as tall as these buildings and I'm down here. I know that."
