It was reported that coach Pep Guardiola has not totally given up on Iheanacho who has proved himself to be a prolific striker still developing and as such, City may want him back in the future.

He is valued at around £25 million and his buy-back clause will be worth at least another £10 million on top of that sum to the club that signs him.

The buy-back clause is viewed by clubs as a way of City protecting themselves against losing a top promising young players who fall out of favour with the manager of the day. It makes negotiations over a transfer more complex with the buying club having to ensure that they are covered at both ends of the deal.
