Manchester City are concerned that Vincent Kompany is too injury prone as they consider a new contract offer for the club legend, Simon Mullock reports for the Sunday Mirror.
The City captain has missed the last six games with further fitness problems after a strong performance against Liverpool in the Blues’ 2-1 win over their transfer rivals at the beginning of January.
Pep Guardiola has indicated in several interviews that he would like the 32-year-old to stick around, but the club have concerns about handing out a new deal to a player with a history of fitness problems, and who is unlikely to become any less injury prone as he gets older.
Kompany, who joined City from Hamburg in 2009 for a bargain £6 million, has featured in just 9 of City’s 23 league games this season, starting 6 of them.
The fan favourite is due a testimonial at the end of the season but there is a chance that this could be his final appearance in the sky blue of City if the club decide not to extend his contract, which expires in June.
