Jorginho opting for Chelsea might ostensibly look like a missed opportunity, however scratch beneath the surface and Manchester City profit, lower down the pecking order.

Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart, meanwhile, is poised for some surprise playing time in the U.S. having returned to the club from a loan spell at West Ham United. If they don't want to come it is better they don't come.

A number of City's stars are absent for the pre-season fixture following the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"No, we're not disappointed, We tried".

"It would have been a mistake if he'd come here when he wanted to go to Maurizio and Chelsea". English football received an exceptional player at the end.

"It's been a pleasure working with academy players over the last few days". If the days before they are exhausted and they don't want to fight for the Community Shield, play at Arsenal, then stay on holidays.

Manager Pep Guardiola was not expecting any of his World Cup players to join up with the squad but has been boosted by the news that Mendy and Portugal global Bernardo Silva will join the tour later next week.

'My advice is for players to go where they want to go. "I know it is not easy for him but we will try and find a solution", said Guardiola.

The plan for Gomes, outlined to him before he agreed to sign, has always been to keep him around the first team squad until at least January, and then decide from there the best course of action. If they are ready they'll help us and if not we'll wait for them.

"And for me this is just a huge challenge, professionally and personally".

Hart has not made a competitive appearance for City since the Champions League fixture with Steaua Bucuresti in August 2016. He's a great professional, he is training like an 18 year-old. "He is with us".
