Manchester City planning to let backup goalkeeper leave the club.

Manchester City

Premier league giants Manchester City Goalkeeper Zack Steffen is expected to leave the club in 2024. The player has no long term future with the club after his recent injury updates. Moreover, the player was also replaced by Nottingham Forest Goalkeeper Matt Turner in the national team long ago. Steffen has been suffering from a knee injury. And that injury is proving to be his nightmare as the player is lacking playing time. He is out of contract in June 2025 and it’s almost impossible that he’ll get a contract extension at the Etihad.

However, there are some speculations about him being linked with Leicester City. But that too seems next to impossible due to his knee injury. Moreover, the shot-stopper is behind Ederson and Stefan Ortega in the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium. The 28 year old United States international has to look for new opportunities. Given the situation of his injury, he’s gonna have a tough time finding a new club.

Manchester City Goalkeeper was at loan before suffering a potentially career affecting injury.

According to footballinsider247, Steffen has already been the least preferred Goalkeeper at City. Moreover, he spent the last season at Middlesbrough on a loan. He has made 45 appearances there, keeping 10 clean sheets and conceding 56 goals. Even if we take into consideration the weak defence that might be the reason of him conceding 56 goals, that’s quite a big number to concede from a player that’s coming from one of the best teams in the world.

In addition to that, Middlesbrough saw their promotion hopes ended by a playoff semi-final defeat against Coventry. That is quite disheartening. Imagine what would’ve happened if they made it to the premier league?. But the reality is different.

Steffen has made just 21 competitive appearances for Man City since arriving in 2019 – most of which have come in cup competitions. Let’s see where is the keeper heading after leaving Etihad.
