Feyenoord have made a request to sign Manchester City starlet John Guidetti on loan for another season as the Swedish striker demands talks with his parent club over his future.
The 20-year-old has been in stunning form this season, scoring 20 goals in 23 Eredivisie matches for the Dutch side and has become a target for Bayern Munich and a number of Italian clubs.
Feyenoord want to extend the deal next term but City are keen for Guidetti to return to the Etihad Stadium as part of manager Roberto Mancini's first team squad.
City would demand a fee of £1 million to allow Guidetti to leave on loan again next season, but are dragging their heels as they make plans for the summer transfer window.
Three of the club’s four senior strikers - Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko - have all been linked with transfers away from the Premier League title challengers.
Guidetti, who spent a month on loan at Burnley last season, will demand talks with the City hierarchy and has already made it clear to Mancini that he wants regular first-team action.
"I don't know what Man City are thinking but I want to play football,” he said last month. “If I can't play at Manchester City - I'm a young boy - then I'll have to play somewhere else.
"If I am going to be given a chance at City then I have to be on the same level as the other boys."
