Man City trio’s US tour is cancelled due to entry requirements
Due to their ineligibility, John Stones, Ilkay Gundogan, and Phil Foden will not be traveling with Manchester City on their preseason tour of the United States.
City have not given any further information.
Instead, the players will train in Croatia with the club’s top preseason development team.
Prior to playing Liverpool on July 30 in the Community Shield, City will play Club America and Bayern Munich in the US.
Due to his lack of fitness, Aymeric Laporte was not included in the 26-man traveling party. In Manchester, he will carry out his recovery.
Despite being linked to Arsenal, Oleksandr Zinchenko was also listed in the squad along with recent additions Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips, and Julian Alvarez.
After Chelsea, who was interested in signing him, fell short of City’s asking price, Nathan Ake will also depart.
In Houston, Texas, on July 21, Premier League champions City will take on Mexican team Club America, and in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on July 23, Bayern Munich, the German champions.
