Aaron Hickey is still on Guardiola's agenda
He is only 17-years-old and he has a bright future ahead of him. It is only a matter of time before he makes the jump to the Premier League, but at the moment he seems to be performing well as a left-back and starting most games for Hearts.
His future is linked with the English Premier League. Manchester City were interested in him back in August, but the blues preferred not to make the move to sign him.
Hickey had hardly shown anything at Hearts at that time (he had just started playing in the Senior team), but now, 2 months after starting a new season, the tables have turned.
Aaron Hickey has taken over the left-back position of the Edinburgh team, and has also premiered as a scorer. City, having another team advance in his signing, would be preparing for his incorporation, according to the newspaper 'Daily Record'.
However, Manchester City would not be alone in the bid. Southampton also appears on the horizon as a possible destination, and although the 'Saints' may not be able to make an offer at City's level, no doubt Hickey can grow in the club without the pressure (and competition) of the team trained by Pep Guardiola
