Manchester City’s highly-rated Swiss-born Montenegro under-21 goalkeeper Aro Muric is expected to join Dutch partner club NAC Breda on loan for the 2018-19 season.
City Watch exclusively revealed in June that Muric, 19, and young Ghanaian prospect Aminu Mohammed, 17, were heading to Breda for pre-season.
Muric has since returned to Manchester, casting any loan deal to NAC in doubt, but that is largely due to the absence of Ederson, who has been at the World Cup, meaning City need numbers, and the plan for Muric has always to be to gain experience out on loan.
And according to BN DeStem it is now almost certain that Muric will be joining NAC on loan, with the club looking to recruit two goalkeepers after Nigel Bertrams was sold to Denmark’s FC Nordsjælland for €200,000.
Journalist Yadran Blanco writes: “The arrival of Muric is a foregone conclusion according to insiders.”
It will be Muric’s first loan move away from the Etihad Stadium after playing for Man City’s under-23 side in the Premier League 2.
