Manchester City will be without Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and John Stones for the pre-season tour of the United States, according to Daily Mail.

Gundogan, Foden and Stones will not travel with Manchester City to the USA, where Pep Guardiola’s men face Club America in Texas on Wednesday before playing Bayern Munich in Green Bay on Saturday.

Instead the three absentees are due to fly to another destination in Europe with City’s Under-23s to continue their pre season programme.

No reason has been given by the club for the failure of the trio to make the trip to the USA.

Manchester City will fly to the United States on Saturday.

Chelsea duo Ngolo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were forced to miss the club’s tour of America due to their Covid vaccination status’ while only ten Crystal Palace outfield players were taken for their tour of Singapore and Australia due failure of players to meet entry requirements.
