Long-serving Manchester City star opens door to summer exit
Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta admits his nine-year spell at the club could be coming to an end, per the Mail on Sunday via Sky Sports.
The Argentine, 32, joined City in the summer of 2008, as the mega-rich Abu Dhabi owners took over at the club, from LaLiga side Espanyol. He has gone on to help them win two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup.
A fan favourite, Zabaleta’s influence on the club has wavered and he has not been a regular feature in the team under Pep Guardiola this season.
The decision over his future is fast approaching, with his contract expiring this summer and he admits he may soon be saying his goodbyes.
“I know my contract expires at the end of the season. I am 32, not getting any younger, so I need to make sure my decision is the correct one,” he said.
“I want to be honest with the club, myself and everyone. It I decide to stay, I will stay. If I will decide that it is time to move on, I will move on. Until then, I don’t want to talk too much about it because I am more focussed on the season and trying to win something.”
