Kyle Walker contract reports ‘at glance’ after weekend incident
According to a recent report, the rumors about Manchester City planning to terminate Kyle Walker’s contract are not true. The 32-year-old player was reportedly caught exposing himself in a bar in Wilmslow, Manchester while he was on a day off from his club duties, as per a video released by The Sun this week. However, despite the incident, the English player arrived on time for training the next morning and trained as usual with the Manchester City squad.
According to multiple reports, Manchester City has not made any official statements regarding the incident involving Kyle Walker, considering it a private matter that occurred on his day off. There have been no internal investigations carried out by the club at the Etihad Stadium. The Athletic reported that Manchester City will not impose any fine or suspension on Walker based on what they have observed.
However, The Sun, who initially reported on the incident, later claimed that Manchester City officials have called off contract renewal talks with Walker.
Kyle Walker, who was signed by Manchester City from Tottenham in 2017, still has over a year left on his current contract in the north-west. During his time at the club, he has won multiple domestic honors under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, including four Premier League titles.
reports about Manchester City’s plan to terminate Walker’s contract are not accurate. It has also been reported that there have been no discussions about extending the contract between the club and the Sheffield United academy graduate. Walker has played 236 matches across all competitions for Manchester City during his five-and-a-half-year tenure.
Kyle Walker played the entire 90 minutes of Manchester City’s recent 2-0 victory against Newcastle United and is expected to play in their upcoming match against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Despite being five points behind league leaders Arsenal, City are determined to maintain the pressure on Mikel Arteta’s team, who are set to face Fulham on Sunday.
Guardiola’s team has won their last three games, and he will be eager to continue this winning streak in the match against Crystal Palace. This will help build confidence ahead of the crucial Champions League Round of 16 return leg against RB Leipzig next week.
