Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta could yet remain at the Etihad Stadium this summer, according to the full-back’s agent.
The 31-year-old lost his place in the Man City XI to Bacary Sagna last season and it had been thought that he would move on when Pep Guardiola officially takes charge in July.
However, Federico Pastorello remained coy when questioned on the future of his client, who has been strongly linked with a move to Inter Milan.
“Zabaleta has another year’s deal at Manchester City,” Pastorello told Telelombardia. “I understand Pep Guardiola has been confirmed but the opportunities in the market are endless. Should there be other opportunities, we will evaluate.”
Zabaleta joined Man City from Espanyol in the summer of 2008 and has won two Premier League titles and one FA Cup during his time in England.
