Manchester City’s convincing 7-0 win over Rotherham in the FA Cup on Sunday was certainly cause for celebration.

While some might have ventured out for lavish meals on Monday, 18-year-old Phil Foden made a dash to the Trafford Centre.

The playmaker, who scored in the third-round victory, opted for the fast-food chain Five Guys and was pictured mulling over which burger-and-fries combo to choose from.

And he could potentially have bigger decisions than that to make in the near future. While he was making his way to the Trafford Centre, his former team-mate Brahim Diaz was being unveiled as a £22million Real Madrid signing at the Bernabeu.

Diaz followed the path of Jadon Sancho, who is now pulling up trees at Borussia Dortmund and has gained international recognition after being called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad. 

Foden, meanwhile, has played just 91 minutes of Premier League football this season — he has the likes of Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne in front of him — and has a fight on his hands to gain a regular first-team spot.

FODEN STATS 18-19 

Appearances: 16

Goals: 2

Assists: 2

Bookings: 1 

But the midfielder, who signed a new six-year contract last month, has no interest in taking the same route as Diaz and is determined to establish himself at the Etihad.

‘It’s up to them really,’ he said. ‘They have gone their separate ways and everyone has their own plan in what they want to do, so fair play to them.

‘Everyone is different, and I see myself playing here. It’s up to them, really. It shows the strength of the squad we have here, how good the players are. It is difficult to get in, but we all try our best.

‘I just need to keep pushing, do my best in the games and take opportunities when they come.

‘We’ve got the best set of players and the best staff so I’m in the right position. I’m learning off them every day, so I couldn’t be in a better place.

‘It’s brilliant to play alongside players like Kevin De Bruyne. You just learn from the best.’
