It seems Manchester City loanee Uriel Antuna has been impressing during his spell in the United States.
That’s because despite having his loan spell running until December, Los Angeles Galaxy are already interested in keeping him for longer.
The news are brought today by Mexican newspaper Record, but actually comes from an interview which the LA Galaxy director Dennis Te Cloese has given to the local ESPN.
Asked if he would like to sign Antuna on a permanent deal, the director said “Yes, or also extend his loan”.
The interview had much praise for Antuna, with Te Cloese claiming they have to “turn off the stadium floodlights so he will stop running”.
Uriel Antuna signed for Manchester City in a move from Mexican side Santos Laguna back in 2017. He was immediately sent to the Netherlands, where he had a loan spell at FC Groningen. Then in January 2019, he moved to LA Galaxy.
The winger has two goals and three assists in 16 appearances for the Californian club this season. Now if he’s doing so well in MLS, Manchester City will probably be keeping an eye on him to see if it’s worth bringing him back to England.
