Loan Watch: 2 exciting Man City youngsters you should keep tabs on, could be worth big money

The Football Manc Cave is taking a close look at 2 Man City players currently out on loan who may return to the Blue’s improved.

Pep Guardiola’s squad has talent in all areas, and not just in the starting eleven, in the development squads too. It’s hard to get a starting spot at the Etihad so in order to get playing time or catch Guardiola’s eye, a loan spell should be on the cards for the younger, less ranked players.

Here are two players who are currently out on loan to other clubs from Man City, who fans should keep their eye on for when they return to the Etihad.

Arijanet Muric

In the summer, I listed him as a player who would benefit from another loan spell. He’s no stranger to them and he’s only 20 years old. There are enough goalkeeping options at City, so his best career move would have been to go and get playing time somewhere else. He went to Nottingham Forest this season and is getting on the bench for the club.

You may also recognise his name from the England game this week when they faced Kosovo. He was their keeper who saved that Harry Kane penalty. He does have some shaky periods in games where he doesn’t look too confident, but then you have to consider that he’s still only 20 and can learn. Hopefully, his loan spells will prepare him for when his time comes at the Etihad.

Ryotaro Meshino

I’ve already reported about this attacking midfielder this summer as he was a name on the list of players to bring in for City and they managed it. They thought that the best way to prepare him for his time at Man City would be to send him out on loan, and Hearts was the club he went to.

He’s only 21, he is highly rated and isn’t just comfortable as a midfielder. Meshino can adapt to a left-wing and striker position. In Hearts most recent game, he came on as a sub so he will be getting used to playing time and also the crowds at football over here, as he’s never been out of his own country to play. When he returns to the Etihad, hopefully, he will also be prepared.
