Kyle Walker dismisses Europe’s interest in joining his former club on a free transfer next year after contract with Man City ends

KYLE WALKER is ready to turn down interest from abroad and let the last 12 months of his Manchester City contract expire.

Walker, 32, has been linked with a move to AC Milan – potential Champions League finals for City.

But the Englishman is undeterred by a move and remains content at the Etihad.

No immediate talks are planned over a further extension of his current £160,000-a-week tenure.

But despite being rotated more frequently this season, Pep Guardiola believes Walker can still compete at the highest level.

And the Catalan boss is happy youngster Rico Lewis can bid the time for more regular starts.

Walker made no secret of the fact that he would eventually end his career at youth club Sheffield United.

However, to be a realistic option, the defender would need to be a free agent.

Last week he was praised for his handling of Real Madrid’s dangerous Vinicius Jr in the first leg of the Euro finals, even though the Brazilian scored a superb goal in the 1-1 draw.

City paid £50m to sign Walker from Tottenham in 2017.


And the Three Lions star, who is hoping for a fifth title medal, is still one of the Premier League’s fastest players.

Etihad bosses will wait until the hunt for the treble is over before discussing all options with the player, including the possibility of an extra season.
