Ex-Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has revealed that he could have joined Manchester City in the 2007/08 season, but chose return to the club where he started his career, FC Koln.

Podolski, who was then a Bayern Munich player, was a big name in football and a Germany international.

Speaking to FT Redaktion, as relayed by Sport Witness, Podolski said:

I met Manchester City once in Munich. Back then, [Sven-Goran] Eriksson was the trainer, and we had talks.

“[The talks were] very interesting, but I made up my mind that I want[ed] to go back to Cologne.”

However, Podolski did end up playing in the Premier League, after signing for Arsenal in 2012, making 82 appearances and scoring 31 goals.
