Manchester City include three clauses in £2.5m+ Aro Muric transfer to Burnley

Manchester City have announced the permanent transfer of goalkeeper Aro Muric to Burnley for a reported fee of around £2.5 million plus add-ons, with the Premier League champions including three clauses in the deal.

 

Muric progressed through the City Football Academy ranks before heading out to NAC Breda on loan in the summer of 2018 before being recalled immediately following Claudio Bravo's Achilles rupture.


The Kosovo international would deputise for Ederson in the 18/19 season, making five senior appearances in the Carabao Cup, helping the Blues on the way to another League Cup triumph with Ederson playing in the final against Chelsea.


Muric then headed on loan to Nottingham Forest, which proved to be an unsuccessful move for the goalkeeper after he lost his place owing to a difficult start with the club, which was succeeded by unsuccessful loans with Girona and Willem II.

However, the 23-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell at Adana Demirspor last campaign, making 32 appearances for the Turkish side.


The Kosovan has now sealed a permanent move to Vincent Kompany's Burnley in the Championship, linking up with CJ Egan-Riley, who sealed a permanent move to the Championship side earlier in the summer – as well as Taylor Harwood-Bellis, who will spend the season on loan at Turf Moor.


Multiple reports have since confirmed that Pep Guardiola's side have included three clauses in the deal taking Muric to Burnley, with the Blues said to have included a buyback clause, a sell-on clause and the opportunity to match any future bids for the goalkeeper.
