Manchester City youngster Oscar Bobb’s agent has told VG that the forward will not leave the Etihad.

The Citizens signed the 20-year-old from Vålerenga in 2019 and initially included him in their U18 squad.

He starred for Manchester City U21s last season, managing six goals and 17 assists from 28 games, operating mainly as an attacking midfielder and a striker. However, his fine form has not helped Bobb to make an appearance for the first team just yet.

At the same time, the versatile attacker has managed to attract interest from other clubs, and despite this, he will continue at Manchester City.

The Norway U21 international is managed by ICM Stellar and one of their agents, Steven Howson, told VG about the treble winners’ plans for the youngster.

“There’ll always be clubs interested in quality young players from Manchester City. But City have a plan with Oscar, they really like him and this season they want to see him develop around the first team,” he said,

The agent didn’t mention the clubs that have shown interest in him but TV2 reported last month that Brighton & Hove Albion, Benfica and Sporting are among the clubs who have tried signing Bobb.

VG add Howson is ‘not worried’ about Bobb’s current situation at the Etihad and believes he will get opportunities to play under Pep Guardiola’s orders this season.

“When you play with 22 other very good players, some of the best in the whole world, you have to learn and take steps in that environment. You have to be mentally strong and ready for those challenges every week. But it only makes you better and stronger in the end,” Howson explained.
