Guidetti set for crunch Man City exit talks as Feyenoord wait

When John Guidetti joined Manchester City in 2008, he broke the hearts of his many admirers.

Although he chose City, he has still been admired at a distance by many top clubs and is now being lined up for a move away from the Etihad.

Speaking to, Guidetti's representative Carlo Cavalleri, revealed that a move to Serie A fell apart in January due to his loan switch to Stoke City, but now the transfer window is open the agent plans talks with Manchester City.

"Next week I'm going to meet Manchester City to discuss the future of Guidetti," he said.

His agent also highlighted the only factor that could put the brakes on an exit from City.

"The wage of the boy is high (1.6 million euros per season) and therefore we will have to see how much, and especially if the English club (Manchester City) will contribute to the payment of his salary because at present the figures are important.

"There are some developments in Italy, but everything will depend on what City decide, these are wages that interested Italian clubs cannot afford."

He also spoke of Feyenoord, the club in which Guidetti spent the 2011/12 season on loan and excelled at, scoring 20 goals in 23 appearances in the Eredivisie.


"We'll see after the meeting with the leaders of the English club what will happen."

Guidetti has had first team chances limited at City and made no appearances for the Premier League champions last season before his loan move to Stoke. At Stoke, the Swedish striker made six appearances in the Premier League, all off the bench, where he played under former City boss Mark Hughes .
