Harrison has spent the last three seasons on loan at Norris’ old club but looks set to join them permanently from City this summer.
The 24-year-old attacker was in excellent form for Leeds during the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, directly involved in 16 goals.
Should Manchester City sell Sterling?

Time to go
Even so, Norris is certain Guardiola will not be losing any sleep over Harrison not returning to the Etihad. He told TIF:
“I can’t imagine Pep regretting it. Even if he goes on to do well, it’d probably still have been the right decision at the right time.
“Man City, if you look at who they’ve been linked with, [Erling] Haaland and [Harry] Kane. They want big players.”
City already have good attacking players, with Guardiola able to call upon the likes of Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva for those wide positions. Simply put, Harrison would have found game time hard to come by at the Etihad.
Looking quite settled at Leeds, where he is playing and performing, a move there to cotinue his development under Marcelo Bielsa comes across as the wisest choice.
